Don’t believe that statement?

Ask HDR Inc.

HDR is an architecture, engineering and consulting firm that was founded in 1917. It’s employee owned with 10,000 employees. The firm has worked in all seven continents and has done notable projects like the Hoover Dam Bypass, Fort Belvoir Community Hospital and The Roslin Institute.

HDR currently does a lot of work related to health care spaces, science and technology and education and civic spaces.

“Technology has evolved tremendously,” HDR health care architect Susana Erpestad said. “To design with true information or even evidence, it helps sustain the concepts you create.”

The way HDR uses data to inform design has changed the most. The firm uses a lot of parametric models, but the goal is always to match what is in the field with what is in the model.

By using virtually any software platform available in the market, teams find which platforms will inform the design they do.

“I think data is power,” Erpestad said. “I think part of the big impact we have right now is BIM and data management.”

James Bates, an HDR engineer, said they deliver a lot of their requirements and information through Revit. But they do not solely rely on it.

They are constantly in the field checking things against their designs.

“We collaborate face to face. We collaborate with software. We work in the same models,” Bates said. “Then each of us bring our different software that we use into that process so we can comprehensively build the building.”

Bates said the company has been able to sustain its technological advantage through new recruits.

“We have a lot of breadth of experience at HDR ranging from people just beginning in the industry and people being there for a really long time,” Bates said. “I think the way that software is adapted to the process – we can only get that from the emerging professional.”

The BOM and Estimating App is easy to use and works with Autodesk tools like Revit Architecture, Revit Structures and Revit MEP. Bryce Finnerty Chief Solutions Architect for HingePoint states, "This amazingly powerful productivity plugin will save 100’s of hours in BOM (Bill of Materials) data analysis, reporting and quantity estimation so you can mine the data right out of your building information model (BIM) in Revit." The company states that the app will install in less than 30 seconds, and helps to export BOMs, reports, estimates, and quantity takeoffs - tasks that normally take businesses much longer than necessary. The app is designed to cut the time needed to perform these tasks, while still providing efficient results. In fact, Finnerty says that the plugin come with a guarantee to provide a positive return on investment. "We invite you to learn more about the BOM To Excel Plugin and judge for yourself just how easy it is." The newly developed app is available now, and can be accessed through the company's website or directly from the Autodesk App Store. HingePoint states that the newly launched app includes everything from support and training to free upgrades. Those interested can download a free trial or purchase the full app version with a money back guarantee from the company. HingePoint is a consulting and development company that has been integrating systems and technologies since the early 1990s. The company works across the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry leaders in an effort to automate and streamline processes, discovering practical solutions for clients. The company is an Autodesk Development Network partner and clients range from hotel brands and restaurants to commercial real estate developers.

You must then learn the way your company and clients need you to use them to produce work output such as CAD (computer aided design) drawings, Revit 3D models, BIM models and CAM (computer aided manufacturing) precision. As you can imagine, it is a big investment for companies to train employees up the learning curve.  To help bridge the gap in quality training, there is a huge demand for free training and resources. If you are eager to learn and don’t have money to invest in further training, here are some resources you may not know about.
