Technologies

Powered by digital technology, the daily practice of architecture has changed more in the past 10 years than in the previous century. Irwin Partners Architects was an early adopter of CAD (computer-aided design) and is now using Building Information Modeling (BIM) to achieve even greater outcomes. BIM allows us to focus on designing effective, attractive and inspiring architecture. Once our modeling is complete, BIM carries out some of the formerly painstaking work of construction drawing, materials calculation and the like. BIM also automatically tracks and recalculates as changes are made. BIM helps to automate the production of highly accurate visualizations, including 3-D modeling and “fly through” imaging, which aids our clients in decision-making. It also helps to greatly reduce the chance of errors or oversights that can cost time and money during engineering and construction.

ArchiCAD/BIM Software

Irwin Partners Architects uses ArchiCAD/BIM Software to create their designs, document the work, and communicate and collaborate with clients and consultants. By using an integrated 3D virtual building model the following tasks can be accomplished:

Examples of 3-D modeling include:

As a firm dedicated to improving the lives of seniors, Irwin Partners Architects also stays on the leading edge of technologies that improve health and safety, promote independence and enrich our elders’ connection to family and friends in the community. It’s now possible for family members to communicate with and track their elder’s daily activities via the Web. We foresee a not-too-distant future where wireless technology will provide support to each resident in nursing care environments, where radio-frequency identification (RFID) and sensing devices can help pinpoint changes in behavior that prove invaluable to physicians assisting seniors with Alzheimer’s, and where electronic devices can provide memory support to help residents complete important personal tasks.
