Why did you choose LINEAR software solutions?
In the MEP design, LINEAR offers strong and comprehensive tools for the integrated design of our projects. Especially in combination with Autodesk Revit, LINEAR’s applications enable precise BIM processes. Thus, we regularly convince our customers with depth of detail, accuracy, and low-collision engineering models for direct implementation on the construction site.
Which feature of LINEAR software do you like the most and why?
One of the most helpful tools for creating a realistic and accurate calculation are the tested CAD libraries of the manufacturers. This allows all necessary system components to be integrated into the pipe network calculation in a product-specific manner and correctly dimensioned. In particular, the regular updates and expansion of the libraries to include new products enables ever more precise design.
How do you see the topic of “digitization and BIM” in the industry and what do you consider to be the greatest challenges and opportunities?
In my opinion, digitization in general and Building Information Modeling in particular represent the next steps on the path toward automation of design processes. Against the backdrop of a growing shortage of skilled workers and a persistently good order situation, acceleration and streamlining of our processes are essential. BIM is defined as the best way for raising collaboration with architecture and other specialist trades to a high level, comparing plan content, carrying out collision checks and putting the feasibility of our projects to the test before construction begins. For this reason, we are increasingly relying on BIM with LINEAR.
