Corstorphine & Wright Selects Ideate Software Tools

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 9, 2023 – When Corstorphine & Wright, an architectural practice with design studios across the United Kingdom, hired a new head of digital, it learned of the time savings possible with tools from Ideate Software, an Autodesk AEC industry partner and Autodesk authorized developer.

Neil Carter, head of digital at Corstorphine & Wright, said, “When I joined Corstorphine & Wright in April of 2022, I brought along experience with Ideate Software tools that I used in my previous role. I had used Ideate Explorer to keep models performing effectively by finding and deleting unused elements and fixing Revit warnings. I had used Ideate BIMLink to export data from Revit to Excel for editing as well as to create unplaced rooms, unplaced spaces, sheets, masses, and areas.”

After talking with a representative from Ideate Software, the company decided on a three-year bundle subscription that includes:

  • Ideate Explorer for access to all elements, even those excluded from the Revit browser
  • Ideate BIMLink to pull data from a Revit model into Microsoft Excel for editing, and then push volumes of updated data back into the model
  • Ideate Sticky to link Microsoft Word and Excel as well as PDF documents to Revit projects
  • IdeateApps to streamline the tasks that Revit users perform most often
  • Ideate StyleManager to easily analyze, delete, and merge non-standard styles

They also subscribed to Ideate Automation, a scripting solution that runs time-intensive BIM tasks in the background.

Neil continued, “The value of each of the tools was clear, and access to all of them would enable our architects to quickly get through so many different tedious data management tasks that historically have taken a lot of time.”
