Mobile app will help Japanese firm enhance the use of BIM in design and construction
Takenaka Corporation is to make Graphisoft’s BIMx Docs available to thousands of its field technicians. The BIM project viewer, which brings 3D models and drawings to mobile devices, will help enhance the use of BIM in design and construction at the Japanese AEC firm.
Development of so-called “Takenaka Smart Work” will aim to improve productivity and communications by ‘revolutionising workflows’ through the use of iPads and mobile devices.
“We adopted BIMx Docs as a tool to facilitate communication with models, as well as for reviewing models in conjunction with drawing smoothly in a mobile environment,” said Kozo Nose, Senior Manager of ICT, Design Planning, Design Department, Takenaka Corporation. “We would like to promote the transformation of our work style by spreading the use of BIM models in various scenarios.”
