Autodesk and Ideate Software Tools Support Unique Projects

As you review the Hennebery Eddy portfolio, you’ll notice that the company isn’t tied to a specific style. Instead, it responds to each client’s needs, respecting the underlying organization of each site and pushing beyond the programmatic  requirements to create inspirational, environmentally conscious, and meaningful places in the community – an approach captured by the firm’s design philosophy. Throughout the design process, Hennebery Eddy relies on tools including  Autodesk® Revit® building information modeling software and Ideate Explorer, which it uses to keep its Revit files clean and organized.

Ideate Explorer is a powerful Revit model management tool that reduces time spent on tedious tasks from hours to seconds. With it, users easily search for, filter, quantify, index, and select all elements – even ‘missing’ and hard-to-find ones. It makes it easy to assess Revit file health, execute necessary changes quickly, and keep BIM projects on the right path.

“Ideate Explorer has improved our ability to collaborate in Revit as a large team, helping us achieve a cleaner model, saving us time searching for elements, and improving our syncing times,” said Scott Moreland, AIA, Associate at Hennebery Eddy.
