Template Creation

    Learn how to build a template to enforce office standards and efficient workflows.

A BIM Workflow can minimise the requirement for re-work and re-creation of design information, compared to a traditional CAD approach. Optimising your work with templates is one of the key methods to improve your efficiency while working in ArchiCAD.
Although more effort is required at the initial push at early project stages, less work is needed to be done at later project stages.

The time and effort put into every project start-up are heavily dependent on the quality of the template that is utilised, therefore, it is worth investing in producing a quality and relevant template for the office needs.
This training offers an overview of the responsibilities and technical knowledge of the Template Manager in relation to the task of creating and managing an office template. It summarises the core activities and provides an implementation and audit methodology.

An office template is a predefined, "empty" file that contains all the necessary information for starting a new project, based on the applicable national and company CAD/BIM standards. It will dictate that all new projects work to an agreed consistent standard and ensure efficiency and usability of the project files and workflows, producing the highest quality delivery.
