Building simulation is a very helpful tool for Anex in dimensioning and optimizing building services equipment. We see that more and more architects can provide BIM models and we are committed to a better information exchange through modeling. For this reason, we have optimized the BIM2SIM process, where Abstract has helped us to improve the workflow.

You are a true wizard. It is the first time that I was able to import a complex IFC model into IDA ICE without any problems. I am thrilled and can recommend abstractBIM without reservation.
I had great expectations from abstractBIM and I was not disappointed. The program takes a lot of extra manual work from us and does it in a very short time. Nevertheless, I had to realize that even with abstractBIM a very bad and faulty architectural model does not get better. Thanks to Simon's great support, we were still able to overcome this challenge.
Abstract's adaptation algorithm closes the existing gap in the consistent use of BIM models for simulation purposes.
This simplifies the simulation of large and complex projects many times over. You also become more flexible and faster in the simulation, as you can add or remove geometries (zones) with just a few mouse clicks.
The use of abstractBIM was the "enabler" to be able to evaluate competition entries from different architects with our "Early Stage Design" tool. This allowed us to benchmark the projects regarding return on investment, construction costs, comfort, energy consumption, and daylight use within a few days. A solid basis for decision-making for the building owner - with minimal manual effort! That is digital process intelligence.
