This project was an investigation of the following Construction Innovation software packages:
- Automated Estimator
- Automated Scheduler.
The associated Viewer, integrated into Automated Estimator and used in LCADesign, was also used as an independent tool to view the 3D CAD models. Each software package was applied to a set of example buildings provided by industry, which existed in 3D CAD and IFC format. The necessary databases were checked, and the building models modified to suit the requirements of the software, and the software assessed for their application in practice as required. The objective of this activity was to evaluate a sample of commercial buildings using each software package.
