The pandemic has placed more emphasis on maximizing the value and increasing the efficiency of facilities, with executives saying cutting costs was their top real estate priority in a recent investigation by analyst firm Verdantix. However, occupancy and operations workflows are often fragmented, making it difficult to leverage data from siled systems.

“Combining design, operations and performance data and workflows into a single platform to improve the comfort, safety and efficiency of building assets has never been more important,” says Nick Stefanidakis, Managing Director of Archibus, an iOFFICE + SpaceIQ product. “Autodesk’s strategic investment allows us to deliver the solutions organizations need to meet this demand. “

The Archibus platform was one of Autodesk’s first developer partners, and this investment extends the combined capabilities to increase collaboration and scalability.

“Users of Archibus and Autodesk products will see the value of tighter integration of BIM-based design and construction data with information on operations and workflows to optimize the performance, comfort and durability of vehicles. installations, ”says Stefanidakis. “Homeowners and occupants can leverage this operational data to make better and more informed design and construction choices. “

Autodesk has been a leader in BIM design, engineering and construction solutions for nearly 30 years and recently introduced BIM to the world of digital twins, including the launch of Autodesk Tandem and the acquisition of Innovyze. Autodesk sees this investment as another strategic step in the company’s efforts to bring BIM and digital twin technologies to the full project lifecycle, from design to operation and maintenance.

“BIM is at the heart of Autodesk’s AEC business and serves as the foundation for the digital transformation underway in the construction industry, from design to operation,” said Nicolas Mangon, vice president, architecture , engineering and strategy for the construction industry at Autodesk. “Owners and operators are playing an increasingly important role in the fight against climate change by improving the efficiency of buildings and creating flexible and resilient workplaces when working conditions suddenly change. Our investment in iOFFICE + SpaceIQ recognizes the importance of giving them the tools they need to meet these challenges.

Autodesk and iOFFICE + SpaceIQ offer integrations between Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD and Archibus with plans for future integrations with Autodesk Construction Cloud and Autodesk’s Forge platform. Customers, including global housing and construction provider Daiwa House, have already used the existing integration.

“Daiwa House has developed a building data creation and management strategy so that building owners can make more data-driven decisions while reducing the guesswork associated with operations and maintenance,” says Takaaki Miyauchi, Director Head of Digital Construction Promotion Department at Daiwa House. “Archibus and Autodesk’s BIM products have been at the center of our strategy to bring the project model and asset operations closer together. Autodesk’s investment in iOFFICE + SpaceIQ will fully bring BIM to construction operations, which is so important to the digital transformation of construction operations and the future of the built world.
