Vienna, 1st July 2021 – Integrated Design with Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the core competence of ATP architects engineers. Since 2012, all of ATP’s European offices have been working with the digital design software. And all this time they have also been working on ways of using it more effectively and comprehensively. Because we are convinced: BIM is not the tip of the flagpole; rather, integrated cooperation with BIM is the basis for change.
ATP began development work on a digital interface between the design and tender processes around five years ago. Now, in 2021, “BIM2AVA” – for shell & core and finishes – is in use right across the company. It symbolizes the merging of enormous technical expertise from the areas of building technology, design, tendering, and programming; as well as a new workflow. Because, in order to ensure that all the elements in the BIM model are automatically linked with the tender program, the building has to be modeled systematically from the very beginning of the design phase.
The ATP architect and BIM manager Ursula Reiner, who has already been designing with BIM for almost a decade and has now been accompanying the finalization of BIM2AVA for more than a year, gets right to the heart of the advantages of the program: “In the development project BIM2AVA we further developed and automated the interface between the model and the specifications – the written description of all the elements that are required to realize the building. Earlier, we had to work with excel tables manually in order to transfer information to the tendering program. Now this process is automatic and digital. This is a huge step forward!”
