INVESTING TO INNOVATEIngegneri Riuniti combines great professionalism with many different skills. The constant pursuit of process improvement and project integration pushed us to look for new ways to meet the quality and sustainability requirements that our sector imposes on us every day. OUR CHALLENGE The chance to control and conduct the whole planning procedure in real time, in order to take the best decisions possible, pushed us to invest on a software system for 3D planning on a BIM platform (Building Information Modeling). The role of BIM in the building industry (through its actors, which include architects, engineers, builders and customers) is to support communication, cooperation, simulation and optimal improvement of a project throughout the life cycle of the works. OUR SOLUTION After having analysed the current proposals on the market and having considered how our company could integrate them into our own working procedures, we decided to adopt Autodesk® Revit. Autodesk® Revit is a leading tool that supports architectural planning, MEP engineering and structural planning; moreover, it allows to design, build and organize buildings at a higher level of quality and energetic efficiency. Autodesk® Revit is purpose-built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), so it mirrors the real world of buildings, and helps you accurately capture your early design concepts. Integrated bidirectional associativity helps to ensure that any change to your project information is reflected throughout your model, while parametric components offer an open, graphical system for conceptualizing and expressing detailed design intent. More precise conceptual design better informs design decision making and enhances client understanding, while supporting more efficient and sustainable production and construction. In order to adopt the new platform, we decided to collaborate with Cad&Cad Group, a technical partner with a well-established experience, official Autodesk distributor and supplier of the certified teachers who trained our staff.
