Sharing in a BIG way.
Rising construction costs. Fast-track schedules. Vast quantities of documentation and project teams located around the nation. These are just some of the challenges faced by architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) firms in today’s global economy. Like many technically-driven industries, companies in the AEC sector are dependent on professionals sharing very large CAD drawings quickly. To succeed in this fast-paced, highly competitive environment, AEC firms require their IT infrastructure to not only handle the exchanging of information, but do it multiple times and do it quickly. This kind of radical change in performance has a deep impact on architecture and engineering firms. At Northland Systems, we understand the need for speed that is simply demanded by companies in the AEC sector.
One of the big benefits for architects is the ability to collaborate globally. Architects and engineers can work together around the world as if they all worked at the same site. Management can "in-source" work from one overworked office to other offices that may be under-utilized, which means firms can take on more work that they might otherwise have to pass up.
How many times have your teams been forced to do a design — or worse, redo actual construction or engineering — due to using the wrong version of a schematic? Instead of maintaining multiple file vaults and facing a high risk of revision control mistakes, you can have everyone work out of one data repository. It’s not as hard as it sounds.
We understand the need for speed when it comes to the AEC sector – keeping your firm on track, on schedule and on budget. Call us when you’re ready to get in gear.
