Amtech offers BIM data for Revit MEP 2013
Amtech is expanding its product offerings to include intelligent data content for Autodesk Revit MEP via Building Data SysQue following a recently announced strategic product and technology partnership with Building Data LLC. SysQue managed data content, powered by the Building Data database, is a cloud-based software as a service that enables designs in Revit MEP to use real-world, manufacturing-specific data that is ready for fabrication and meets the detailing, fabrication, manufacturing and installation requirements of MEP contractors.
This partnership with Building Data enables Amtech to offer BIM (building information modelling) with Revit MEP content directly through Luckins Live, the online portal for price and labour data used by most UK contractors’ estimating and purchasing systems. There are some 600 000 MEP items in the Building Database, about 200 000 of which are relevant to the UK.
Using SysQue, Revit MEP 2013 can model systems with materials and sizes based on actual manufacturer products by name and part number.
SysQue web services offered by Amtech will extend the Revit MEP BIM data to include Luckins material cost, labour values, submittal documents and procurement part number. It also includes Excel reporting — making the model data-rich and ready for a multitude of additional functions, including cost analysis, prefabrication, manufacturing and installation.
Mark Tindall, Amtech’s CEO, says, ‘Our customers will be able to compile detailed estimates or generate bills of material directly from their Revit MEP models — while still using the Luckins data service they’ve depended on for years.’
