SEPS BIM Tool Revit plug-in

Looks like I got caught with my plans down. Bryan found this little tidbit and I'm very intrigued as to how SEPS will affect our workflow and process. BIM can be used in hundreds of different ways and there will eventually be thousands of plugins t help you do your specific tasks more efficiently and effectively. Glad my team members are always looking for better ways for us to do BIM.


It's all interesting and amusing to me to note that while most have been busy shunning Revit and doing the same crappy low quality blueprint creation, Autodesk has their own sales teams and territory managers meeting with all of your clients and telling them abut all the great benefits of BIM.


At ACAI, we invite Autodesk to meet with our owners since we've been doing full BIM for a while now, it just helps us leave our competitors in the dark (as in dark screens of AutoCAD). Too bad my boss isn't reading this right now and that's only because he's on a plane coming back from the NIBS/bSA/CoBie conference. It's awesome that our principals are not only s in touch with modern technology, but that they also are engaged in the industries latest trends and are actually helping drive the industry forward. My only problem is that Cindy won't let me call her my hero in public anymore so you didn't read this here.


Anyway, take a look below at all of the stuff you're going to have to learn and say goodbye to your profits for a while since you didn't implement this years ago when you should and could have....and good luck finding staff that has any clue how to do this stuff. That's your biggest problem.

Autodesk Solutions for Building Owners

BIM Improves Efficiencies and Reduces Costs Throughout the Building Lifecycle

As buildings evolve, it’s crucial that building owners and their architects, engineers, contractors, and facility managers share information throughout the lifecycle – from initial design, through construction, to operations and maintenance. Building Information Modeling, or BIM, facilitates this information sharing. It is an integrated process that provides coordinated, reliable information about a project from design through operation.

Owners/operators and AEC service providers alike are discovering the values of utilizing BIM for both private and public sector buildings projects:

  • Significantly improve efficiencies in the design development and review process
  • Identify errors earlier, reducing costly reworks during construction
  • Dramatically reduce time, effort, and cost of facilities management

This webpage contains information, free trials, add-ins, and templates that relate to using Autodesk software for both private and public sector building projects.

See How BIM Can Reduce Time, Effort and Costs of Facilities Management
In this screencast entitled “BIM for the Building Lifecycle” you’ll learn how BIM helps to reduce time, effort, and costs in facilities management. You’ll see how extending BIM into the operations and maintenance phase of the building life cycle can help drive greater efficiency and significant savings.

Built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), Autodesk® Revit® software helps capture and analyze concepts and maintain the project vision through design, documentation, and construction. Information-rich models support sustainable design, construction planning, and fabrication. And connecting BIM data from the design and construction phases to the facility management and operations phase allows owners/operators to better manage a building’s occupancy to help reduce real estate costs, and more productively track and maintain critical mechanical, engineering, and plumbing system assets.

Autodesk® Revit now includes Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, Autodesk® Revit® MEP, and Autodesk® Revit® Structure software.

Great stuff. Using BIM makes work really efficient that it has proven for years now.
