FAQs

What are the benefits of architecture project management software?

Architecture project management software is a niche category of software that is designed specifically for use by architects and other designers. This kind of software offers features like plan sharing, plan annotations and mark up, or collaboration with external parties on BIM models. On the project management side, this kind of software offers a single location for all collaboration and communication between clients, architects, contractors and other team members working on complex construction projects. With all information in a single location, it’s easier to make sure that the team delivers a high-quality result on time and on budget.

Can project management software for architects support international projects?

Using project management software for architects is one of the easiest ways to mitigate communication difficulties between construction team members who speak different languages. A platform like PlanRadar, which is available in over 17 languages, can be used by different team members to communicate. With digital plans or BIM models shared across a whole team, users can either collaborate via text or by sending each other photos, videos or plan annotations, which may be easier to understand. When your project manager and your architect live in different countries, having a single location for communication can also help you to avoid mistakes and misunderstandings, rather than waiting for someone to read their emails or be available on the phone.

How can I choose the best project management software for architects?

The best project management software for architects is the one that best fits your business. If you only work on one or two projects at a time, your needs might be different to companies that work on a dozen projects or more. Alternatively, if you have to be hands on with contractors and confirm that building work meets your plans, then you probably need a solution that you can use on-site to complete inspection checklists or markup digital plans with anything that needs rectifying. However, if you don’t usually have to visit construction sites, then you might not need a mobile app. There are a lot of options on the market, so take your time to review multiple platforms and choose the one that works best for you.

Can architects manage plans and BIM models using PlanRadar?

Yes, plan management and model management are some of PlanRadar’s key features. For 2D plans, you can upload PDF, JPEG or PNG files. Meanwhile, PlanRadar’s BIM model viewer allows architects to put BIM models into the hands of workers on-site. The openBIM solution allows uploads of IFC files exported from Revit, ArchiCAD, AllPlan, Navisworks, and more and enables PlanRadar users to work directly on the model for more accurate annotations. You can also export data collected within PlanRadar as a BCF file to sync back to your CAD Software, so that design teams can make any necessary changes.

Can I create my own checklists for site visits in PlanRadar?

Yes, PlanRadar allows you to build as many unique checklists as you like which you can take with you onto a project site and fill in using a mobile device. If you need to create a slightly different inspection checklist for each project then that’s also possible. You can design your checklist to include photos and video evidence of your visit, so that you have a complete record of what you saw. Users can also generate reports based on completed checklists that can instantly be shared with clients or any other relevant party.
