Leading Design Firms Collaborate with IMAGINiT Technologies to Create New Clarity Space Programming Module
IMAGINiT Technologies has developed a new Space Programming Module add-on for IMAGINiT Clarity that addresses common space planning challenges that firms face on complex architectural projects. In addition to this optional, add-on module, the new 2022.1 version of IMAGINiT Clarity now includes a variety of features that enhance integrations and model metrics for Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD users.
“Many Engineering News Record’s Top 500 Design Firms who already own IMAGINiT Clarity, recognize that space planning challenges exist for many architectural firms,” says Bill Zavadil, president, IMAGINiT Technologies. “As power users of IMAGINiT Clarity, data savvy firms like Leo A Daly and the DLR Group provided directional guidance to our software developers to create a tool to identify ways to accelerate design creation, improve design verification and track deviations from space programming plans. The IMAGINiT Space Programming module is the outcome of this collaboration and is now available to benefit the entire architectural design industry.”
“I’m really excited to see programmed data added to Clarity,” stated William Carney, design technology leader and principal, DLR Group. “To me, this was always the missing piece in an already powerful data and automation tool. The Clarity team has done a great job providing a flexible data management solution for projects, from planning stages through building operation, that offers time-saving solutions through automation. I think the ease of working with Excel will appeal to many of our experienced planners and break many of the data silos our design teams face.”
IMAGINiT Clarity’s new Space Programming Module automates the traditionally inefficient and manual early-stage planning and programming process into a streamlined workflow. The Space Programming Module seamlessly integrates the pre-design space planning work into the Revit model with innovative import tools and powerful APIs, all via Clarity. This new unified workflow accelerates design creation, improves design verification, and reduces the redundancies and errors that occur when manually inputting Excel-based room, furniture, and other space-related data into the building information model.
Clarity 2022.1 Offers Enhanced Integrations and Model Metrics
IMAGINiT Clarity 2022.1 supports Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Revit Server 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.
