San Francisco, CA, 06/26/2017Ideate Software, a veteran Autodesk Developer Network member, announced today the publication of its latest “Spotlight on” customer success profile. This profile features Kumpen and its use of Ideate BIMLink, an Autodesk® Revit® add-in tool developed by Ideate Software. Ideate BIMLink enables users to move BIM data from a Revit file into Microsoft Excel, so even those who don’t work in Revit can easily edit and update the data.

“After working with Ideate BIMLink, the Kumpen BIM team and I realized that it was the perfect tool to use to solve the challenge of working with architects and engineers who only work in 2D,” said Sien van der Have, BIM manager, Kumpen.

Founded in 1945, Kumpen’s activities include construction, infrastructure fit renovations, real estate development, tunneling, and private-public partnerships. Kumpen uses Ideate BIMLink to update and change Autodesk Revit data with integrity and speed as well as to communicate in an innovative and productive fashion.

“[BIMLink] is a very handy and safe way to check all the changes. This whole method of working takes place before the building process begins, ensuring that fewer mistakes occur on site and significantly reducing costly mistakes,” said Ms. van der Have

The Spotlight on Kumpen story provides details of how the company used Ideate BIMLink to:

  1. Transfer hundreds of questions and remarks from a Revit model to an Excel spreadsheet, so its architect and engineer could easily respond to and update the information
  2. Have its foreman complete an Excel spreadsheet that was then imported into Revit to generate quantity surveys of realized quantities

“I always enjoy learning about specific ways in which clients use our tools to streamline their Revit model management,” said Bob Palioca, president, Ideate Software. “Kumpen gives us great examples of how Ideate BIMLink speeds the process and enhances model accuracy by enabling all project team members—even those not familiar with Revit—to easily review and edit complex BIM data.”
