San Francisco, CA, November 3, 2022 – Ideate Software, an Autodesk® AEC Industry Partner and Autodesk® Authorized Developer, presents its latest customer spotlight. This story highlights how Evolve Consultancy, one of the UK’s premier BIM and design consultancies, uses Ideate BIMLink to populate Revit models with COBie (Construction to Operations Building information exchange) data to satisfy ISO 19650-2 requirements. ISO 19650 is an international standard for managing information over a built asset’s lifecycle using building information modeling, and part 2 concentrates on the delivery phase of assets. COBie is one of the open data formats accepted in the UK by the National Annex to ISO 19650-2.

“Although required, taking the time to understand and accurately deliver the COBie data consistently across all delivery phases can take a backseat to producing ongoing design and construction information,” said Glynnis Patterson, Director of Software Development, Ideate Software. “In this success story, Evolve Consultancy details how they use Ideate BIMLink to streamline the process of creating quality COBie deliverables.”

  • Nigel Davies, Director, Evolve Consultancy, said, “What could amount to months of work has been simplified into a remapping exercise thanks to the power of Ideate BIMLink.”
     
  • Daniel Heselwood, Director, Evolve Consultancy, continued, “One of the big advantages Ideate BIMLink gives is that we can work on the active model while the architects also work on it. If part of the model was locked for editing, Ideate BIMLink doesn’t just give up but continues with the rest of the import and reports back the items it couldn’t update, avoiding downtime and delays.”

Nivin will work with architecture, engineering, construction, and owner-operator (AECO) companies throughout North and South America to help them get a strong return on their investments in both Ideate Software tools and Autodesk Revit® software. 

Nivin NabeelNivin has extensive experience in managing and manipulating BIM data, developing and implementing BIM standards and workflows, and applying BIM workflows to ancillary project components for improved efficiency. She also has knowledge of Revit software, Ideate Software products, and the AECO industry. 

“Over the years, Nivin has worked at several architecture and design firms where she learned about our software, used it, advocated for it, implemented it, and trained coworkers and consultants on how to use it,” said Glynnis Patterson, Director of Software Development, Ideate Software. “Our customers will benefit from her knowledge, talent, and enthusiasm as she helps them gain the efficiencies possible with all our Revit add-ins.”  

“I am thrilled to be with Ideate Software,” said Nivin. “I have used all their products to streamline processes like developing quantity takeoffs, managing parameters and deliverables, and extracting data from Revit models, including ones not exposed to users through the Revit environment. I also used them to standardize internal workflows that the whole team used to maintain Revit model health. As a customer success manager, I’ll get to help so many companies realize the same efficiencies, which in turn will help them deliver a better customer experience while advancing the AECO community as a whole.”

Nivin has a Bachelor of Architectural Science degree from Toronto Metropolitan University. She is based out of Toronto, Canada.
