IMAGINiT Clarity v2022.1 Launched
Product focuses on common space planning challenges that firms face on complex architectural projects, according to IMAGINiT Technologies, product developer.
October 11, 2021
IMAGINiT Technologies has developed a new Space Programming Module add-on for IMAGINiT Clarity that addresses common space planning challenges that firms face on complex architectural projects. In addition to this optional, add-on module, the new 2022.1 version of IMAGINiT Clarity now includes features that enhance integrations and model metrics for Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD users.
“Many Engineering News Record’s Top 500 Design Firms who already own IMAGINiT Clarity, recognize that space planning challenges exist for many architectural firms,” says Bill Zavadil, president, IMAGINiT Technologies. “As power users of IMAGINiT Clarity, data-savvy firms like Leo A Daly and the DLR Group provided directional guidance to our software developers to create a tool to identify ways to accelerate design creation, improve design verification and track deviations from space programming plans.
“The IMAGINiT Space Programming module is the outcome of this collaboration and is now available to benefit the entire architectural design industry,” Zavadil adds.
“The Clarity team has done a great job providing a flexible data management solution for projects, from planning stages through building operation, that offers time-saving solutions through automation,” says William Carney, design technology leader and principal, DLR Group. “I think the ease of working with Excel will appeal to many of our experienced planners and break many of the data silos our design teams face.”
IMAGINiT Clarity’s new Space Programming Module automates the early-stage planning and programming process into a streamlined workflow. The Space Programming Module integrates the pre-design space planning work into the Revit model with import tools and application programming interfaces, all via Clarity.
This new unified workflow accelerates design creation, improves design verification, and reduces the redundancies and errors that occur when manually inputting Excel-based room, furniture, and other space-related data into the building information model.
