Multi-disciplinary design and engineering firm CESO has grown into a national powerhouse in the United States. With a staff of 275 people across ten regional offices, the firm is enthusiastic about the results it is getting from its latest workstation technologies.
CESO uses Dell 3640 workstations powered by AMD Radeon Pro W5700 GPUs to deliver its graphics-intensive, deadline-driven workflows.
CESO’s Multi Applications
CESO’s workstations for its architects and engineers power multiple CAD, BIM, and AEC applications simultaneously. The list includes Adobe Creative Cloud, Autodesk AutoCAD, Autodesk Revit, Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk Recap, Autodesk BIM 360, Bluebeam Revu, Enscape, SketchUp, and many more.
CESO’s Director of Architecture, Bernie Lappe, says “delivering exceptional service to clients requires having the right technology. So as projects get larger, more sophisticated, and timetables faster, we’re going to make sure that we upgrade our technology to meet the needs and the demands.”
The AE firm’s latest technology addition is the Dell Precision 3640 tower workstation featuring the AMD Radeon Pro W5700 GPU, the world’s first 7nm professional GPU. At CESO it powers the Dell UltraSharp U4021QW, a 40-inch 5k x 2k ultrawide display.
With their latest Dell workstations, the firm recently developed a project for the First Baptist Columbus, a church in Mississippi, and developed a stunning 3D model to support master planning, perspectives, and walkthroughs of the campus to help fundraise the project. The pull this feat off the firm developed materials and textures in Photoshop, developed the building in Revit, and utilized Enscape to drive the stunning visualizations that were very well received.
Lappe remarked to AMD that the Dell Precision workstation with the AMD Radeon Pro W5700 GPU allowed the team to re-render some things during the client walk-through to address client questions. “Having the confidence to add lighting and other features in real-time to help people connect with the space is invaluable to our client and us,” said Lappe.
