AECOsim Building Designer

AECOsim Building Designer is a single building information modeling (BIM) software application that includes tools for architectural, structural, mechanical, and electrical systems design, construction documentation, and visualization of any type and scale of building. Its key advantages are:
  • Model anything with total freedom, regardless of geography or size of project team to create virtually any form of any size or complexity, leveraging the power of GenerativeComponents, limited only by your imagination.
  • Immersive interaction to create and interact with 3D models, 2D designs, as well as innovative hypermodelling to integrate and access all available project information.
  • Trusted deliverables production to generate precise drawings and documentation, information-rich 3D PDFs, and 3D plots.
  • Comprehensive breadth and depth to integrate engineering geometry and data, including point clouds, from an unmatched range of CAD and BIM software and engineering formats like IFC and DWG.
  • Integrated, and project-ready AECOsim Building Designer empowers building design and construction teams to collaborate efficiently, by eliminating miscommunications and manual error-prone workflows.
  • Interdisciplinary modeling environment to integrate design and documentation workflows, eliminate barriers between disciplines, and shorten learning curves.
  • Performance simulation to evaluate and explore designs through lifelike rendering and animation, generative design, and built-in clash detection.
Unlock design using the power and flexibility of AECOsim Building Designer from the start of your project to the end.
AECOsim offers complete design flexibility to:
  • Create automated schedules from existing CAD drawings.
  • Turn models from other conceptual design tools into drawings.
  • Model objects with unlimited flexibility with no design boundaries.
  • Build effective sites and terrains.
  • Produce immediate and effective renderings, sketch images, drawings and schedules.
AECOsim uses Bentley MicroStation as its CAD engine, and delivers customised workspaces for each discipline.

AECOsim - Building Design, Analysis, and Simulation Software for Multi-discipline Building Teams

The AECOsim family of applications provides unique building design, analysis, and simulation software focused on helping Architectural, Engineering, Construction, and Operations (AECO) practice leaders deliver high performance buildings. These applications enable architects and engineers to author and use rich information models to:
  • Predictively design and optimize the performance of building systems and utilize information modeling within, and between, multiple disciplines using decision-support capabilities
  • Produce high-quality building and project documentation for use throughout the project lifecycle of design, construction, and operations
  • Extend the capabilities for users of commonly available design tools from Bentley, Autodesk AutoCAD and Revit, Graphisoft Archicad, and others in an integrated workflow through open standards

AECOsim Case Study - Building Studio Architects

Building Studio embraced BIM workflows to ensure design quality while maximizing productivity. AECOsim Building Designer enabled smaller teams using BIM workflows to produce the same work of larger design teams, effectively collaborate with contractors and consultants as a result of AECOsim Building Designer's interoperability and ease of data exchange, reduction in construction errors with precise models, coordinated drawing sheets, and detailed scheduling of component quantities. With AECOsim Building Designer deployed across the business, Building Studio has been able to work faster and win far bigger, more challenging projects.
