Saving Time and Increasing Accuracy with Ideate Software Applications

Modulus LogoSince 2010, Modulus Consulting has been serving building designers, contractors, and owners throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and across the country. They help project teams leverage the power of building information modeling (BIM), providing services from BIM implementation mentoring to AEC design modeling, pre-construction coordination, and construction fabrication modeling. With diverse backgrounds and extensive experience, Modulus understands the practical challenges presented by BIM to companies and project teams.

“We initially started with Ideate BIMLink, which makes it far easier to view and edit project data, but more importantly, enables us to perform quality control workflows that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. It’s an essential tool we rely on regularly,” said Peter Michealsen, Managing Principal, Modulus Consulting.

More Efficiencies with Additional Ideate Software Applications

Modulus has expanded its use of Ideate Software applications to include Ideate Explorer and Ideate Apps. Here are some ways it uses them as well as Ideate BIMLink:

Advancing the AECO Community

Modulus provides BIM guidance, support, and services to building project teams, and Ideate Software develops applications for Autodesk’s Revit software for BIM. A deep mutual respect led to a formal partnership where each refers business to the other. Together, Modulus and Ideate Software bring a deep bench of BIM services and solutions to the architecture, engineering, construction, and building owner (AECO) community.
