Navisworks the Model Collaboration and Coordination Supertool

  • One of the areas we have seen a lot of benefit has been in our self performed concrete division as we use coordinated models for issuing lift drawings for the crews to build the forms off and to ensure that we have all of our embeds and block outs in the correct locations.
  • I have also seen benefit in being able to use the clash detection to coordinate the MEP trades as this allows us to be confident in prefabrication of ducts, piping, etc. This has been crucial in helping us get into the data center construction market.

  • Our company spends a lot of time upfront coordinating projects, and the results in the field have shown that with substantial rework savings.
  • At times it is challenging to get subcontractors to buy-in to the coordination, so it is written into their contract.

Navisworks - Great for Coordination

Return on Investment

  • Navisworks Manage use to be very expensive to purchase. In the last few years, however, Autodesk has incorporated this program into the Design Suite of programs. Now, if you are going to be modeling using Autodesk products, you will have access to this program and it is well worth it.
  • Navisworks Freedom is a free program and can be installed on rest of your teams computers. This allows anyone that does not have the Design Suite to still be able view and fly through the model.

Navisworks, What a time saver!

Return on Investment

  • The software is very easy to use and quick to master, most users can navigate a building or model within a few short sessions, but there is enough depth to use it as a serious productive tool.
  • The software cost of Navisworks Manage is a barrier to smaller companies, and has been a limitation on some of our projects that not all members could use the full functionality. However there is still enough functionality in even the free version to assist with smooth communication between team members.

Great for project understanding during pre-construction

Return on Investment

  • In operations, the clash detection feature has been very positive.
  • In preconstruction/estimating, it's been positive, but I can't say there is a direct indication of a positive ROI. It does, however, help with the precon/estimating process.
