CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (PRWEB) January 12, 2021
MSUITE proudly announces a new partnership with Scott Hendricks and Brad Hendricks of VBS to launch its flagship Autodesk Fabrication Parts database, APEX. The alliance will help MEP contractors address important issues, such as the lack of standardization or accuracy of digital Fabrication content used during the design phase of construction projects.
For many years, VDC and BIM Designers have developed content based on their own standards. Content service providers and Building Product Manufacturers (BPMs) deliver customized content that is often incompatible with the client's data. This causes issues throughout the BIM process, which can cause substantial re-work, delays, errors, and unplanned costs downstream.
"The quality of construction starts at the most elemental level, BIM content. If you are not modeling with premier content, it is very difficult to design premier systems consistently and efficiently. In partnering with VBS, MSUITE is helping MEP contractors capitalize on the most comprehensive, performant, and accurate digital Autodesk Fabrication database on the market," said Britton Langdon, Chief Executive Officer at MSUITE. "By providing the opportunity to bundle BIMPro for Revit licenses with a subscription to APEX, we're eliminating disruptions in productivity and barriers to BIM caused by inaccurate or poorly designed content."
Built by tradesmen for tradesmen, APEX is an advanced Autodesk Fabrication database created by the Hendricks brothers, whom MEP contractors have trusted for nearly 20 years for quality Fabrication content. APEX is regarded as the most open "plug & play" solution on the market for sheet metal fabricators' with a comprehensive catalog of Specifications, Liners, Stiffeners, Notches, Ancillaries, and Seams. APEX's pipework is prefab ready and significantly optimizes the prefabrication process through pre-built Service Templates, advanced Button Mapping, Ancillaries, and pre-configured Reports. Trusted by plumbing contractors across the U.S., APEX also offers the most accurate and utilized materials and fittings from the most popular manufacturers.
"The alliance with MSUITE furthers our mission to help VDC professionals design and build better projects using better high-quality data, which reduces risks and saves costs. By combining the cutting edge MSUITE technology with our comprehensive APEX platform, the impact on construction productivity, as well as building performance for Owners, is unmatched," said Brad Hendricks, Co-Founder, Virtual Building Supply.
Aligned to industry standards and maintained with manufacturer specifications, APEX’s Autodesk Fabrication data is now available to MSUITE customers on a subscription-basis.
Trusted by many ENR Top 600 Specialty Contractors firms, MSUITE's innovative cloud-based platform's impact is substantial for MEP and Modular Construction firms looking to increase productivity, enhance communication and reduce costs.
