BIM software and the advantages of integration

Edificius supports two different types of integration with other software solutions:

  • Integration via the standard IFC file format, with all other software that supports this international standard. For example with structural analysis software, plant systems (MEP), Energy Performance, Time schedules and budget planning (BIM 4D) and cost estimating (BIM 5D);
  • Integration with other ACCA proprietary software
BIM software Edificius 5D BIM integration

5D BIM integration and cost estimating

The true 5D BIM… With Edificius automatically generate a dynamic Construction Estimate from the BIM model. Thanks to the BoQ and Cost Estimating features that are directly integrated in the Program. Each variation of a BIM entity corresponds to a dynamic updating of the metric data and the project’s total cost. For more advanced Cost Estimating and BoQ features, you can use the more extensive quantity surveying tools. It’s available in PriMus by means of direct integration with Edificius.

BIM software Edificius structural engineering integration

BIM Integration with ACCA’s structural engineering software, EdiLus

You can integrate the BIM model with EdiLus for all the structural design, calculation and verification aspects in reinforced concrete, masonry, steel and timber. Everything is  in accordance with Eurocodes and the latest construction codes currently in force.

BIM software Edificius img-10

Integration with other ACCA software solutions that will soon be available for the International Market

The Edificius architectural BIM design model can also be integrated with information leading from other IFC standard compliant software.
In some countries, Edificius can already be integrated with other ACCA solutions using its own proprietary software technology. You can add MEP design information, Energy performance analysis, Health and Safety, Maintenance Plans, etc, to the Architectural BIM model.
In fact, ACCA produces software for a multitude of design purposes in the Building and Construction sectors. Not all of these solutions are currently available in all countries.

BIM software Edificius cad integration

BIM and CAD integration
