San Francisco, CA, May 17, 2023 – With steep competition for top talent, Stantec, a global leader in sustainable design and engineering services, knows that its work environment must be one in which its employees have the support they need to focus on the company’s mission of advancing the quality of life in communities across the globe. One way Stantec delivers that support is by using tools by Ideate Software, an Autodesk® AEC Industry Partner and Autodesk® Authorized Developer. 

“I have been a fan of Ideate Software tools since I first used them in 2015,” said Ben Holmes, Senior Technician, Stantec. “They help our team spend more time offering unique insight to every project by reducing the time needed to perform repetitive tasks, search for and update model elements, and ensure all deliverables meet our high standards.”

On the East Riverside project, Stantec used Ideate Software tools for auditing models and mentoring on best practices.

When providing examples of how the Stantec team uses Ideate Software tools, Ben mentioned:

  • Keeping model data clean with Ideate Explorer
  • Reducing the amount of time spent populating schedules with Ideate BIMLink
  • Updating drawing elements so line, hatching, text, and other families comply with their template with Ideate StyleManager
  • Creating and copying sheets with views with two tools in the IdeateApps collection
