Pre-setting Variable Values for Each Building Type (Yes, it’s possible)

Heather Kossila, BIM Manager for Kraus-Anderson, discussed her method for creating new projects in DESTINI Profiler pre-populated with variables based on building type.

Users access a batch file created with different building types for the user to choose from. After a selection is entered, Profiler automatically opens. The user then selects a few further preferences and Profiler opens a blank model for a new project. The variables specified for that particular building type will already be in place.

As Kraus-Anderson prepares to implement Profiler within its preconstruction team, Kossila’s method decreases training time needed and, from the beginning, situates projects closer to the final estimate.

We invite you to learn more about this method, including cautions and walk-through examples, in the full webinar here.
