“HPP has been successfully using Ideate Software tools for many years,” said Sandra Bethke, BIM Manager/IT, HPP. “We use Ideate BIMLink the most, and it saves us a lot of time by enabling us to export data to Excel where people who don’t know Revit can audit data, enter new data, and update existing data.”
With Ideate BIMLink, HPP exports component lists from Revit models into Microsoft Excel files and makes them available to specialist planners who quickly and easily fill in parameter values using familiar Excel tools. When the data is imported back into Revit, the completed parameter data is automatically assigned to the respective components. “This way of working saves a lot of time, especially in very large component lists, such as doors,” said Sandra.
“Each tool allows us to perform specific tasks better and faster,” said Sandra. “The team is looking forward to using them all as they work to create economical, ecological, technical, social, and aesthetic value for our customers and communities.”
