FAQ

What does architecture project management software do?

Project management software is designed to enable users to manage their projects in one platform. Architecture project management software is a more niche category of software specifically designed to meet the needs of architects and designers. It offers features that enable plan sharing, marking up of drawings, or collaboration with external parties on BIM models. It can also streamline communication between different members of complex construction projects.

Why is architecture project management software important?

There are lots of reasons why an architecture office would invest in project management software. First, architects need to collaborate with a number of parties before their projects begin construction, from clients and specialist engineers to the general contractors who will deliver the project. Project management software can make this process of collaboration more transparent and can provide a central place for feedback and additional information. Secondly, architects have a range of responsibilities once construction is underway. Project management software can offer a single location where construction teams can request more information from designers. This improved communication can prevent mistakes and help to ensure the building is as close to the final design as possible. Other benefits include massive time-savings when reporting to clients and the ability to monitor progress on the construction site.

What is the best architecture project management software in the United States?

The best project management software for architect is the one that meets your business needs. For example, if you aren’t personally involved in visiting construction sites, then you might not need a software option that includes a mobile app. However, if you have to manage contractors or confirm that contractors have built a project to your specifications, then you probably need a solution that you can use on-site to complete inspection checklists or add notes to digital plans. 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 architects track a history of design changes using PlanRadar?

Yes. PlanRadar automatically stores previous versions of plans and it is easy for users to compare different plan versions, with the differences highlighted in color. At the end of a project, it is also possible to export the entire project, with all communication stored safely. As a result, it’s easy to look back and see when a change was made and why.

Is there a free trial of PlanRadar’s project management software for architects?

Yes! PlanRadar offers a 30-day free trial so that you can discover the different features and thoroughly test how PlanRadar works for you.

Yes. To support plan management and document sharing, PlanRadar integrates with Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive. PlanRadar also offers an open API and webhooks, so if there’s a specific integration that you’re looking for, there is usually a solution to achieve what you need.
