Get there Faster with Archicad
Orcutt | Winslow, an architectural and interior design firm headquartered in Phoenix, Ariz., has been using ArchiCAD for 20 years. The firm first began using ArchiCAD when it was running projects froma single office. Now the firm has grown to multiple offices, with ArchiCAD scaling to its demands.
Russ Sanders, Director of Orcutt | Winslow's Hospitality Studio, cites ArchiCAD's BIM Server as a truly game-changing technology. "We are increasing our staff and the number of joint projects with teams located in other regions of the US and the world," he says. "When I travel I don't carry a server with me, I carry a laptop. ArchiCAD's BIM Server is incredible in its ability to allow me to sign in to a project from my hotel room anywhere in the world, and be instantly productive on the project. It's dramatically different from anything you canndo with other BIM software."
In a distributed team environment, the ease and speed of workingwith the model is also a real advantage, according to Sanders.
"We can instantly synchronize the model and data through the BIM Server, instead of copying files back and forth or using some other archaic method of sharing information," he says.
