DSK utilized Revit from the early phases of the program and worked hard to get the software to meet their output standards. One of the firm’s differentiators is the level of detail in their designs and renderings, and transferring these dozens of layers and components into Revit was taking time and resources away from the overall creative process. To streamline redundant tasks like drawing formatting, tagging and content library maintenance, DSK reached out to Microdesk for experienced BIM and Revit consultant support.
The goal of the partnership was to take the grassroots methodology of DSK and scale it to meet their expanding client base and service offerings while retaining the dedication toward design. To that end, Microdesk provided a range of services including workflow automation, template creation and project mentoring and training.
Ongoing project mentoring and support has helped DSK continue their learning and overall project delivery during and between engagements. From implementing file maintenance best practices to advanced modeling and complex family creation, Microdesk remained available to DSK in whatever capacity was requested. Internal staff was very comfortable with Microdesk consultants in the office, often feeling that they were part of the core team rather than a third party. This allowed the combined workforce to develop cohesive BIM standards, clear role descriptions and cross-departmental communication channels.
