BuildingSP, Inc. Partners with ViaTechnik and iCAD Solutions
BuildingSP, Inc. is pleased to announce the first two implementation partners for its
computational building information modeling (BIM) tool. BuildingSP will be working with iCAD
Solutions in Irvine, Calif., and VIAtechnik in Chicago, Ill., to train users and work with customers
on implementation of GenMEP, a clash-free autorouter for the Autodesk Revit platform.
GenMEP is a generative design tool for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems. It
uses complex algorithms, developed for the aerospace industry, to automatically route MEP
systems through Revit geometry without clashes. Currently focused on electrical systems,
GenMEP automatically creates 3D models faster than the manual process of drag-and- drop
modeling. It completes entire routes for MEP systems in seconds without clashing with other
systems. GenMEP streamlines the modeling process, reduces clashes, and makes clash
detection and clash resolution more efficient overall.
Aubrey Frederick, president of iCAD Solutions, says, "I've been drafting, modeling, and detailing
for 20 years and I've been waiting for someone to make this type of tool. GenMEP is
revolutionary and changes how we do BIM."
Danielle Dy Buncio, president of VIATechnik, says, "We're very excited to be collaborating with
BuildingSP. Generative design holds huge potential to change construction processes and
VIATechnik wants to be at the forefront of applying technology to construction inefficiencies."
"BuildingSP was started because we saw an opportunity in the marketplace to model buildings
in a smarter way. Both iCAD Solutions and VIATechnik are innovative companies and
consummate BIM professionals," says Brett Young, CEO and founder of BuildingSP. "We look
forward to hearing how GenMEP is leveraged on projects."
