Over the years, ARCHICAD has proven to be an essential tool in our practice and has helped us deal with increasingly complex projects. ARCHICAD allows us to streamline our project documentation by introducing tools such as BIMx. We share our BIMx models early in the design phase so the clients and contractors can participate in the project evolution. We consider BIMx a collaborative tool. Combining ARCHICAD with BIMx creates a robust design tool that we use to communicate our design concepts to clients, facilitate their spatial understanding so we get their feedback incorporated into the design. This also allows early coordination with the contractor so that by the time we issue construction drawings, contractors are already familiar with the building, which translates into a smoother construction process.
