Imagine being able to view and interact with a fully functional, computer-generated 3D model of your next building project – then presenting it on your iPad or laptop to your colleagues, board of directors, banker, potential tenants and others?

Now you can, because Stephenson&Turner has developed a cloud-based technology to deliver ‘Autodesk® Revit®’ – an innovative approach to delivering the market-leading building information modelling (BIM) solution – to the end user.

One of the great things about S&T’s use of Autodesk Revit software is that it’s internet (‘cloud’) based, so access isn’t limited to individual workstations. Instead, you can access building models from any internet-connected device, whether it’s a computer, a laptop, an iPad or a mobile phone. The software is housed in the S&T data centre, so access is both secure and reliable – and it’s available 24 hours a day.

The benefits continue. Compared with its more traditional workstation-based counterparts, this cloud-based solution enables faster processing times, more stable computing sessions and the ability to generate larger and more complex files. It’s also completely scalable to meet the processing requirements of larger and multiple concurrent Revit modelling teams.

Stephenson&Turner’s development of cloud-based Revit has been a positive game changer for the company and has completely redefined the company’s thinking and approach to the delivery of Revit to its project teams. Stephenson&Turner are in the process of developing the next version of this technology to ensure that it maintains a leading edge through the use of cloud-based technology to underpin its BIM capabilities.

S&T’s Revit Cloud has been operating for a year, with immediate and tangible benefits for our business and our clients. For more information on how our BIM strategies and Autodesk Revit could help your next building project, please contact us.

This ground-breaking use of this technology also appeared in AECbytes, an international online publication focused on researching, analyzing and reviewing technology products and services for the building industry this month. It has had a phenomenal response. A follow up article is in the works. Watch this space for news!
