NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, UK, July 6, 2015 – Viewpoint Construction Software announces the latest 4Projects release providing critical features to meet BIM Level 2 compliance, a precondition of winning government construction projects by 2016 in the UK. 4Projects helps project managers save time tracking how and when their project team members deliver what is needed during the project lifecycle and ensures contractors meet Level 2 compliance standards. 4Projects is a collaborative project management solution that integrates the entire project team – owners, architects, construction managers, engineers, and subcontractors – to facilitate a truly collaborative building effort. 4Projects includes document control, project communications, BIM viewing and management, and mobile capabilities to help ensure the right information reaches the right people at the right time.
4Project’s BIM Information Planner brings the management of the model information into a truly collaborative environment. It allows project managers to assign roles as well as establish and track which deliverables are required at different stages of the project and to what level of detail.
“We realize that all levels in the construction supply chain will need to demonstrate BIM Level 2 compliance in the next year and we are focused on helping contractors on government projects, as well as private sector contractors, meet these requirements,” stated Rob Humphreys, vice president of global product management at Viewpoint. “By allowing entire project teams to walk through models and quickly coordinate and update information, identify risks, and quickly assign, track, and manage tasks to resolution, we help customers meet this compliance. The 4Projects BIM solution also helps project managers save time by identifying and validating whether the information they are receiving is what was requested, avoiding errors and interruptions later on. The enhancements available in this release were heavily influenced by ongoing customer feedback. This feedback helps ensure we are enhancing our software to meet the needs of the market and to maintain our role as the leading project collaboration provider in the industry.”
Additional BIM viewing and management updates include:
- Model Differencing – now users can quickly identify changes between 3D model revisions with color-coded tracking. This helps ensure the changes requested are reflected in the model.
- Model Measurement Tool – with the model viewer, team members can easily gather dimensions when in the field, taking point-to-point measurements from models using snap points.
- File Name Checking Tool – administrators of the Information Planner can set file name requirements to help guarantee all models in the BIM container follow the required naming convention, which helps users easily find files needed.
