Fitzpatrick Architects has been using ARCHICAD since 1997. Using ARCHICAD’s 3D modeling capabilities to communicate our designs has enabled us to greatly reduce surprises in the built project. Clients can trust that what they see is what they are going to get. ARCHICAD’s quick processing allows us to quickly move between 2D and 3D, and much of our design work is accomplished in 3D. Documenting our projects is very efficient and the translation from a 3D model to a set of construction documents is quick, with many tools and schedules to automate production. Teamwork allows us to have multiple members of our teams working on the same project, even from remote locations. With ARCHICAD’s IFC functionality we are able to exchange our model with engineers across various software platforms. Contractors appreciate the ability to use ARCHICADs BIMx on their iPads and view the model on the jobsite. ARCHICAD is intuitive, complete and exactly the right tool for Architects.
