Content Creation

Revit Content Development Approach

DBM Vircon offers a wide range of Revit content solutions for architectural, FF&E (Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment) structural and building services elements.

Revit families are the corner stone of an intelligently created model. Their creation determines the overall effectiveness and use of any project model. The creation of parametric families reduces modeling and coordination efforts while providing the benefits of scalability and data accuracy. This accuracy is key in the creation of project schedules and data exports, providing accurate real-time quantities and specifications.

Our collaborative approach allows our clients and design teams to identify the individual requirements for each project model content. Further coordination with facility management teams allows asset data to be incorporated early which allows asset registers to be created and reviewed through the design, construction and operational stages of a facility.

Revit Content Creation Modeling – Designed for Construction

FULL DIGITAL ENGINEERING (BIM) CAPABILITY

Our custom software can automate repetitive manual tasks, while increasing accuracy, to boost staff time on design modeling and define rules to generate hundreds of innovative design options.

PARAMETRIC MODEL GENERATED DELIVERABLES

We create photorealistic renderings, animations, 3D models, documentation and cut-aways so you can better explore, validate and communicate designs to your clients and project stakeholders.

MULTI-DISCIPLINE INTEGRATION

With our custom-built processes and platforms, multiple disciplines can share model data. Linking service models and geometry enables early clash detection, for resolution by us or the engineer.

VERSATILE 2D AND 3D DOCUMENTATION

Our data-rich models are able to detect design errors early on and eradicate clashes. Without delays and rework, you can dramatically reduce costs and provide clients with highly accurate quotes.

COMPLEX METADATA MANAGEMENT

Architectural integration helps ensures the project lifecycle is smooth and efficient, with parallel workflows and reduced duplication, rework and delays. This can reduce a timeframe by up to 12%.

Revit Content Creation Modeling – Delivery

 

DBM Vircon’s Approach

Working primarily in Revit while leveraging other advanced software and parametric solutions such as Rhino and Grasshopper, our team of Revit modelers produce millimeter accurate, intelligent Revit families for use on multi-discipline projects. The families are developed with extended lifecycle in mind. Understanding the requirement for Revit families to contain not only accurate geometry but correct usable information (data) allows the family to be utilized from design through construction to facility management.

Modelers transform a wide variety of design information (2D drawings, specifications and sketches) into visually appealing, detailed, data-rich 3D Revit families that benefit the client and project.
