October 3-6, 2011   Mortenson Construction Presented Successful Experience of Using Innovaya Visual Estimating
MC2 ICE CONFERENCE 2011, Harrah's Casino & Resort, Tunica, MS. Mortenson Construction, one of the largest general contractor and construction services company in the United States since 1954 presented successful user experiences of using Innovaya's award-winning 5D BIM-estimating software Visual Estimating for MC2 ICE. David Green, a Sr. Estimator at Mortenson presented a number of real-world multi-million dollar projects, in which Visual Estimating was used for quantity takeoff and estimating. Mr. Green demonstrated how he himself and other estimators at the firm performed efficient quantity takeoff from Autodesk Revit models through Innovaya Visual Estimating, and connected BIM elements to MC2 ICE estimate items with the capability of managing estimate changes using Innovaya's intelligent design change management functions. According to David, the use of Innovaya Visual Estimating dramatically increased the productivity in the estimating process and helped the estimators produce better estimates. One of the important gains was that Visual Estimating software actually helped the estimators find imperfections, errors, and issues in the BIM models. Mr. Green also discussed the learning curve his team went through with using Innovaya BIM software and positive experience working with Innovaya throughout the process.

December 01, 2010   Innovaya discussed BIM for Construction at Autodesk University 2010
At Autodesk University 2011, December 01, 2010, Kevin Yu, President and Founder of Innovaya, presented "Aspects of Using Autodesk Revit for 4D and 5D BIM Construction". The presentation was given live through the Autodesk University Virtual Online and audience from the world had an opportunity to participate. During the presentation, Kevin discussed various detailed technial issues in Revit on how to make a model to be valid and userful for 4D scheduling and 5D estimating. Much of the information discussed can be, and has been, used as guidelines for BIM modeling in Revit, and has been proven to be extremely useful for Revit designers and constrution BIM managers in the process of model review for BIM construction purpose. The content of the presentation is based on the experience of Innovaya working with over 100 customers including designers, engineers, and construction managers and estimators using Revit as a BIM source. Some of the materials covered in this presentation is also provided during Innovaya BIM training and workshop for its customers. We want to particularly thank the following BIM experts and company for their direct input of their knowledge to this presentation:
- Jason Weddell at Beck Group
- Kirk Alloway at Hensel Phelps Construction
- BIM Managers and BIM Estimators at Lord, Aeck & Sargent Architecture

January 12, 2010   Dollars and Cents BIM: Tekla Corporation and Innovaya Integration Streamlines BIM-Based Quantity Take-Offs and Estimating
Tekla, Inc. and Innovaya, LLC. announce the release of InnovayaR Composer for Tekla Structures. As a result of connecting Tekla Building Information Models (BIM) directly to project estimates, construction professionals have the ability to develop dynamic project take-offs and estimates quickly and easily. "In today's environment, by using an automated and efficient estimating process we can easily iterate through more alternatives to find value. With more detail in the estimate, there are simply more places for us to look for savings. After we win the work, we react to changes in the estimate in a precise and automated fashion and avoid losses related to incomplete change orders," says Jason McFadden, Project Manager, Barton Malow Company. "We envision the estimator becoming a cost analyst limiting the tedious task of quantity take-offs." McFadden adds, "the use of Innovaya in our preconstruction department allows us to leverage relationships with A/E firms to better 'build' the model while streamlining our estimating efforts thus adding more value in the preconstruction phase of the project."
