High Performance Design
ADC is at the forefront of providing efficient ways of coordinating to create quality designs. We use the latest tools, systems and technology to assure we are providing High Performance Design. With professionals skilled in the full suite of AutoCAD design software including BIM, Revit, and Navisworks, we are able to design the exact infrastructure you require in a way that is compelling and relevant to all stakeholders and comprehensive in its detail. By utilizing this industry standardized software to its greatest potential, ADC’s team is even better positioned to provide maximum cost savings, error mitigation, and dynamic engineering and architectural modeling for every project.
These software tools help ADC to move forward as an innovative team committed to contractual strategies becoming more popularly in the global marketplace, such as Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). Through BIM and its counterparts, the intense collaboration across multi-disciplined project teams required for IPD contracts can be realized with a tool that enables the right kind of data sharing and project coordination.
Design Software and Technology
Building Information Modeling (BIM) allows our team to even further deliver on this mission by facilitating an advanced way of working where the data stored in the design is as intelligent as the components within it. With BIM, a rich design software that enables each object in a design to have a database of information behind it and connected to it, ADC’s designs and information can remain consistent, coordinated, and more accurate, regardless of how many times the design may have changed. BIM models allow our engineers to give you a visual representation of your building, system or infrastructure backed by accurate data coordinated across disciplines. Early access to the information within the models created in BIM helps all stakeholders to gain more insight into their projects and make more informed decisions earlier in the planning, design, construction, or renovation process providing the maximum value to project cost, schedule, and sustainability.
Revit® software for BIM (Building Information Modeling) includes features for architectural design, MEP and structural engineering, and construction. It is 4D BIM capable with tools to plan and track various stages in the building’s lifecycle, from concept to construction and later maintenance and/or demolition. Advance Design Consultant’s uses the intelligent model-based process to plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure. Revit supports a multidiscipline design process for collaborative design.
SketchUp 3D modeling software allows ADC’s Architects and Engineers to produced scaled and accurate models and drawings in 2D or 3D. SketchUp helps us to create conceptual models with spatial requirements, general arrangements, etc. and then as specific equipment or components are selected we can refine the model. Whether we are designing for a new building, a retrofit or extension, or modeling installation of new tools, it also architects, mechanical engineers and designers to create detailed 2D and 3D models that they can review with clients and the construction team to allow for a smooth transition from concept to site and ensure for successful projects.
ETAP, Electrical Power Systems Analysis Software, is a solution for design, analysis, monitoring, and operation of generation, transmission, distribution, industrial, transportation and low voltage power systems. It allows our team to perform power system modeling, analysis and optimization for your project. By combining the software with the expert knowledge of our engineers and designers we can help you create, configure, customize and manage your electrical power system model, provide analysis and optimizations ranging from load flow to transient stability, and provide a comprehensive and integrated solution to assess the safety and grounding of your current electrical system
SKM power systems analysis and design software is used for fault calculations, load flow, coordination, arc flash hazards, motor starting, transient stability, reliability, harmonics, grounding, cable pulling, and more. SKM software has been used in commercial, light and heavy industrial, institutional, utility, and petrochemical sites and facilities worldwide.
Pipe Flow Expert Software is used by Advance Design Consultants’ engineers to calculate flow rates, pipe pressure drops, and pump performance. It calculates fluid flow in open or closed loop pipe networks with multiple supply & discharge tanks, multiple pumps in series or in parallel, and multiple pipe sizes & fittings. It allows ADC’s engineers and designers to create detailed piping design and pipeline modeling.
Navisworks® project review software lets Advance Design Consultants holistically review integrated models and data with clients to better control project outcomes. Used primarily to complement 3D design packages (such as Autodesk Revit, AutoCAD, and MicroStation), Navisworks allows users to open and combine 3D models, navigate around them in real-time and review the model using a set of tools including comments, redlining, viewpoint, and measurements.
