James Beveridge, vice-president of operations for BuildCentrix, presented at the Mechanical Contractors Association of Western Washington’s GetTech event, discussing the ways the mechanical construction industry and the construction industry in general are becoming more focused on manufacturing.
“There are emerging technologies that can help contractors measure and track their manufacturing productivity,” Beveridge told attendees at his talk. “The presentation focused on how contractors can leverage these technologies and the benefits.”
He presented numbers from the JB Knowledge 2017 construction tech survey, which said less than 20% of espondents are using Revit for BIM projects.
In 2019, that number has increased to 40%, now that more contractors are moving their processes away from AutoCAD to Revit. “The way of the future is REVIT,” Beveridge said. “Client engagement is going up, and clients want to start fully implementing Revit and BuildCentrix.”
By the end of the year, BuildCentrix intends to be fully integrated with Revit and offer full services for multi-trade contractors.
