In this candid panel discussion, one architectural principal shares what helped her make the switch from a CAD platform to BIM; and the extraordinary impact it had on her business.
For Lindsay Cullum-Colwell AIA, principal of luxury custom residential firm Cullum Homes, the switch to ARCHICAD has improved her team’s efficiency and provided a flexible workflow in which her designers can explore creatively. Cullum-Colwell has found numerous benefits since making that switch in 2016, and she will be sharing them (along with the challenges) in this candid discussion.
As a long-term user of ARCHICAD, Jared Banks, AIA, will also share his experiences in using ARCHICAD and discuss the process of adopting a new software, along with the features that support a design/build firm.
Jared and Lindsay will:
- Describe the process of adopting ARCHICAD
- Explain how the flexibility of ARCHICAD helps architects explore creatively on new designs
- Talk about features of ARCHICAD that serve the design build process
- Discuss strategies for making the software work best for custom residential
