Having adopted the BIM process over 5 years ago, LPA’s practice has grown significantly in the past few years, so has the scale and complexity of the projects we work on, and BIM helps to streamline the design and coordination processes, giving our practice a sustainable edge.
‘GEZE EZE BIM helps us to reach a resolved solution faster and we have a better view of the expected outcome. We’re able to leverage the expertise of our GEZE Architectural Specialist, helping to bring our unique ideas to life by incorporating customized solutions that give our work a distinctive edge’. Neels Fourie, Director LP Architects & Redevelopment Specialists
More predictable design outcomes
A central model acts as a sole source of truth to minimize surprises which typically causes erosion of project margins. With this shared intelligent model, the outcome of our design becomes more predictable, which means that there is less need for reworks or different versions of the model across multi-disciplinary teams and consultants.
Speeding up how we work with our clients
Using GEZE EZE BIM means that we connect directly with GEZE Architectural Specifiers – this helps us to speed up how we work with our own clients.
With GEZE, their Autodesk REVIT plug-in and play EZE BIM links to a product schedule database, and through near real-time online conversations with GEZE specialists’ changes are seamless. Completed Ironmongery Schedules arrive with component detail, images and costs if we need these. Which means that there is no need for my team to spend time searching for objects and plaster and paste door configurations…we now avoid the uncertainty, variability and risk that this brings.
‘The GEZE team is willing to go further, they are involved from the very start of the design process through to providing reports, evaluations and attendance on-site.’ says Neels Fourie, Director LP Architects & Redevelopment Specialists.
