New solution to be unveiled at the Autodesk University 2013 Conference.
Washington, DC — December 3, 2013 — Textura® Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced today that Latista Technologies, a Textura solution and leader in field management solutions for construction, is introducing BIM for the iPad, to be unveiled at the Autodesk University 2013 Conference.
Latista has taken the use of building information models (BIM) in the field to the next level by introducing its BIM solution for the iPad. Latista with BIM is integrated into the already award-winning Latista cloud and mobile solution. This new solution renders models rapidly and allows users to easily navigate, interact with, and launch workflows from a model right in the field. Watch a demonstration here or for live demonstrations, visit the Latista booth (# 2007) at the Autodesk University 2013 Conference in Las Vegas, NV, from December 3rd through 5th.
Users can publish Autodesk BIM models to the Latista Cloud and then these models can be synchronized to iPads for use in the field. Latista with BIM unlocks the data within the model, giving crews access to the information they need right at their fingertips to complete their work to the highest possible standards of quality. A user can virtually walk into a room in the 3D model, locate a piece of equipment, touch it, see all of the information associated with it, and launch a workflow.
“Our goal is to eliminate obstacles for our field users. To do this, the Latista with BIM solution needed to render models super-fast, be easy to interact with, and be powerful enough to generate mission-critical workflows. We truly believe that Latista offers the best-in-class BIM in the field solution,” said Chris Ramsey, President of Latista-Textura. “Latista with BIM will enable project teams to even further improve quality and eliminate delays, providing an even higher return-on-investment for our customers.”
Field personnel can drill down into systems and equipment to find schematics, photos, and operations and maintenance manuals; view a log of any issues recorded against the item; and view in‐progress and completed inspections. Latista with BIM saves projects’ time, which saves money.
“Latista with BIM gives our users information they didn’t previously have access to in the field. We are resolving conflicts more quickly and more smoothly, which keeps our project on schedule,” said Brant Fischer, project solutions consultant with Messer Construction (Latista beta program user).
