How Revizto helped White Arkitekter Pioneer Interactive Visualization in the Swedish Market
I work in the healthcare sector, and Revizto is a natural fit for such a complex building type. I personally have one large project underway now, however the Revizto technique has spread quickly to our other projects and offices across Sweden. In total we have in excess of 200,000 sq meters of projects using Revizto.
We are 15-20 architects and designers, another team of project managers, and a massive team of medical professionals taking part in the design process. Revizto allows us to collaborate with many different layers of people. For example, we have shared the models with the artists who are creating artwork for the hospital, so they can better understand the spaces. We are also sharing the models with the clients’ project managers for use during project meetings, and with the eventual users of the building: the doctors, nurses, and medical technicians. Our clients love Revizto. They are very enthusiastic about being able to “feel” the spaces that we are designing for them.
Speaking of the most essential tools and features, the export feature is a major plus, which allows us to publish new models every week for internal and external use. The quick and easy methodology of creating Revizto models is crucial and allows for iterations of the model to be updated regularly. Sharing via the cloud is also a major plus. The Software as a Service business model allows us to “sell” the Revizto technique both internally and externally easily.
We’re also planning to use the Issue Tracker heavily, as we will turn our Revizto model over to our clients for a 3-week review period. During that time they will be creating and syncing large amounts of comments back to us, and we will follow up in the Revit models in turn. It is shaping up as a new centerpiece of our work with our clients. Our project leaders believe strongly in the methodology, and in fact, it reduces our workload with regards to the number of drawings that we need to produce.
Undoubtedly, Revizto has enhanced the effectiveness of our collaboration. We have engineers and project managers in our team who are not Revit trained, but they are easily able to check and measure the model using Revizto. With Revizto, we have definitely taken a step ahead of our competitors, and shown our clients that we are technology and methodology leaders in the market. I don’t think that advantage will last, as I expect Revizto to spread in the market…
