Reed delivers an innovative new BIM offering and a sneak preview of the SmartBIM QTO™ tool

SmartBIM Spaces showcases Reed Construction Data's commitment to developing innovative ways to assist the design community and delivers results-oriented solutions for manufacturers to market their products

Reed Construction Data (http://www.reedconstructiondata.com/), a leading provider of building information modeling (BIM) solutions and construction information, is set to launch its newest BIM offering, SmartBIM Spaces at the AIA 2009 National Convention and Design Expo (http://www.aiaconvention.com), April 30 - May 2, 2009 in San Francisco, CA. Reed will also demonstrate the benefits of its upcoming release, SmartBIM QTO, at the AIA convention.

SmartBIM Spaces is a one-of-a-kind BIM product that gives architects a simple way to view and download BIM objects specific to their projects, and offers building product manufacturers a targeted distribution method to get their products in the hands of architects during the design phase.

SmartBIM Spaces uses Reed's high-quality SmartBIM content, including manufacturer-specific and generic BIM objects, and packages it by project type (school, library, office building, etc.). Through Reed's relationships with architects and engineers in the industry, these "spaces" are delivered proactively, allowing designers to view products within the context of a specific project and download the objects needed to complete their projects.

Manufacturers can use SmartBIM Spaces as a targeted way to market their products to the design community and promote their BIM objects. By packaging their project-specific objects within Spaces, manufacturers make it easier for architects to locate the products and information they need.

To help manufacturers track and measure return on investment, monthly and quarterly reports are available for tracking object downloads, distribution and project leads. As an added benefit for qualifying Reed Connect and Datalink customers, all project data for Spaces can be instantly accessed through their data subscription to track who has received their objects.

"SmartBIM Spaces showcases Reed Construction Data's commitment to developing innovative ways to assist the design community and delivers results-oriented solutions for manufacturers to market their products," said Candice Dobra, Director of BIM Solutions, Reed Construction Data.

Manufacturer-specific BIM objects are available through the SmartBIM Object Creation Program. Manufacturers can have their products modeled as 3D, high-quality and highly parametric BIM objects for use in designing a building or project.

In addition to SmartBIM Spaces, Reed delivers high-quality BIM content to the market through SmartBIM Library, SmartBuilding Index and Autodesk® Seek (http://seek.autodesk.com/).

At the AIA Convention, Reed will also demonstrate SmartBIM QTO, a first-of-its-kind early project estimation tool allowing users to instantly retrieve counts, measures and a cost estimate for a project.
