Invicara BIM Assure: Cloud-Based Collaborative Model Checker

AECbytes Review (June 2, 2016)

There has been little progress in the AEC industry so far in the application of technology to streamline the process of getting building approvals and permits from regulatory authorities, despite the fact that BIM—a critical component of the process—is now well established as the “go-to” technology for design and construction. However, a new application for model checking, BIM Assure, that will soon be launched should give fresh impetus to the eventual goal of automating code-checking in AEC. This review takes a detailed look at BIM Assure, its background, how it works, and the types of analyses that can be done with the application.
