In the news from London this morning, it was announced that Graphisoft UK Limited has partnered with Murphy Surveys Limited to deliver point-cloud modeling services, supplying ArchiCAD native 3D models from the point cloud data for the UK and Ireland markets.
Pilot Project Leads Way
This announcement comes after a successful pilot project between Graphisoft UK and Murphy Surveys. The workflows developed have allowed Murphy Surveys to become the first market-leading UK and Irish survey company to offer such services, and further reinforces ArchiCAD as a market leader in the creation of existing buildings in a BIM environment.
The developed partnership and workflow means point cloud data can greatly accelerate the creation of detailed models in ArchiCAD format for instant reductions in data generation and utilization for project needs. This leads to reduced networking and lower costs and more variables are known earlier in the project.
“The addition of point clouds within ArchiCAD 19 has enhanced the workflow from ‘Survey to BIM’,” says Enzo Labrosciano, BIM Manager at Murphy Surveys Ltd. “We have been fortunate to partner with Graphisoft on this and have worked with them to ensure that the deliverable is not compromised by the software, but the software adapts to the needs and [we] are very pleased with the results,” he added.
ArchiCAD user Stuart Archer from Waugh Thistlton Architects explains that “having a model created directly from a point cloud not only saved us time and money upfront at the outset of the project, but the fact that it was provided in native ArchiCAD format meant that we could start work on the model immediately, delivering the project in a shorter timeframe and with higher accuracy.”
“Further enhancing these benefits, Murphy Surveys can also be commissioned to build models using customer templates meaning a practice’s own BIM standards are adhered to and even less rework is required,” says Adrian Girling, Managing Director of Graphisoft UK.
