What about workflow? “These days my Revit workflow is simply receiving updated Revit model files [from] the respective parties via BIM 360,” Powell says, “I then link the new models into my federate model and publish back to BIM 360 so all the architects, consultants and subcontractors onsite have access to the latest building information.”
SKS Group relies on Autodesk software to coordinate the many teams working in concert to make the Waterfront Hilton DoubleTree in Perth a reality. As Powell puts it, BIM 360 lets SKS Group empower the project teams to access and share current project information easily. In short, BIM 360 is essential to the company’s $100 million project.
“This is the very reason we went with the BIM 360 platform,” Powell says. “To allow design teams, subcontractors, building certifiers, etc., access to all the project information.”
“It costs us tens of thousands of dollars in direct and indirect wages for every day that we keep this site open,” he says. Using the tools and solutions available with Revit and BIM 360 helps Powell “identify issues faster, communicate these issues quicker, and develop and review solutions sooner” to move the project closer to completion, ready for guests on holiday and business travellers to start booking.
