Autodesk and Aedas sign landmark BIM deal

Autodesk have recently announced a new major partnership deal with the UK-based, global architectural practice Aedas. Rated as one of the world’s largest practices and as a prominent leader in sustainable design, Aedas has made the decision to adopt building information modelling (BIM) across its 15 European offices. As a result, it has invested in 321 seats of Autodesk Revit Architecture Suite to be deployed across the region as part of a three-year agreement.

The deal comes after extensive research and benchmarking by Aedas, working closely with the Autodesk major accounts team and the reseller partner, CADline. Aedas has already used the software on a number of projects including a large and complex Building Schools for the Future (BSF) scheme at Knowsley, UK comprising seven new schools. The results showed that Autodesk Revit Architecture suite could help increase productivity by up to 50% - and also ensure that data remained accurate and reliable throughout design phase of the project.

Aedas production director, Alan Robertson, said: “We believe the time is right for us to apply BIM methods to our work and expect a fast return on investment despite the continuing uncertainties in the economy.”
