ATLANTA, GA – 10/17/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Asta Powerproject makes it easy for construction project managers, schedulers, and superintendents to access the power of 3D BIM modelling.
Already the global choice for construction project scheduling, Asta Powerproject added BIM functionality in 2015 and will be showcased in Atlanta this week at the BIM Forum.
The conference on October 17-19 brings together architects, engineers, and construction pros to explore how BIM is transforming the way the “human-made landscape” of buildings, parks, cities, and neighborhoods get made.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) digitally represents the physical and functional characteristics of a building in three dimensions (3D) so that all contractors and owners are operating from the same information source and can more easily and visually spot potential construction issues earlier. That insight, in turn, saves firms time and money.
Conference goers will attend educational sessions on new ways to incorporate the power of BIM into real-world projects. Some discussion topics include adopting and using a national BIM standard, enabling BIM collaboration across AEC teams, and managing workflows. In-depth case studies of major new builds and remodels using BIM will also be featured.
Attendees will also have a chance to experience BIM software tools first-hand.
For many construction teams, Asta Powerproject’s BIM module will offer the right mix of features and value. The module, an optional upgrade, gives project planners the key benefits of BIM and 4D planning without the heavy expense or learning curve of a separate system.
Asta Powerproject reads industry-standard IFC databases and shows the 3D model in a window right in the scheduling application. This major upgrade ties the time component of scheduling to the 3D model, resulting in “4D”. Users can see where the build should be a various stages of the timeline and even adjust the timeline by clicking on an element in the BIM model to bring up its corresponding schedule.
“Asta Powerproject’s BIM functionality is allowing our non-architect customers to tap into the power of 3D models for planning and new business presentations,” said Jim Dawkins, U.S. channel manager for Elecosoft. “While there is no government mandate here in the States yet, our users say the competitive and project management benefits are ample reasons to add BIM to their planning processes now.”
