Poole Phillips

From 16th Century Hall Houses To Stunning Contemporary Homes

As AutoCAD users, the AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite was an obvious next step for Poole Phillips. The package is designed for architects that don’t want to waste their knowledge of AutoCAD or their investment in legacy data, but are still ready to enjoy the benefits of building information modelling (BIM).

The Challenge

Initially Poole Phillips were drafting their designs in AutoCAD and then giving it to an Autodesk VIZ specialist at the practice to create a virtual image. Howver they recognised that it was time to consider alternative methods as they were spending too much time coordinating drawings and could see that anything that could cut down this task and help improve accuracy at the same time would be worth considering. This coincided with their VIZ expert moving on from the practice and it seemed clear that what they needed was a good 3D modelling tool.

Why Autodesk?

As AutoCAD users the AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite appeared an obvious next stop. The package is designed for architects that don't want to waste their knowledge of AutoCAD or their investment in legacy data - yet are still ready to enjoy the benefits of building information modelling. The software enables users to prepare design proposals with Revit Architecture and then finish construction documents and enhance details with AutoCAD. it also gives flexibility in resourcing projects; firms can use Revit Architecture to minimise tedious updating tasks and costly co-ordination errors, while deploying AutoCAD for projects requiring large pools of trained staff. This was right for what Poole Phillips wanted and because they were still using AutoCAD as well as Revit Architecture it was a seamless transition. Revit Architecture's visualisation capabilities compensated for the loss of the VIZ skills.

The Benefit

"Revit Architecture helps us translate and visualise the possibilities that are in our head."
