Andrew comes from a comprehensive design, construction and estimating background and is the founder and creator of RubySketch, makers of the BIMbits 3D model library and PlusSpec (BIM, Virtual Design & Construction, and Estimating software for SketchUp). He firmly believes that the design and construction industry can be more efficient via the implementation of technology and inclusion of all stakeholders. Andrew has been an active participant in design and construction for 29 years. He started in carpentry framing and finishing and progressed into construction management with one of Australia’s largest residential construction firms. Andrew has an Advanced Diploma in Architectural Technology, Cert IV in Construction and is a licensed builder. He is an active participant in Standards Australia for BIM and International Standards for BIM.
Taking SketchUp further
Many don’t believe that you can produce a detailed design, 2D drawings, feasibility studies, quantities and estimates from a SketchUp model. We’ll show you real examples of projects large and small where SketchUp has been the primary tool for the design and building process.
SketchUp embraces plugins for a reason
PlusSpec is an Australian-made extension which has been made for SketchUp so you can benefit from all of the amazingness that is SketchUp, but combine it with parametric BIM, Virtual Design and Construct and Estimating tools that benefit all industry stakeholders (architects, designers, builders, estimators, and product manufacturers).
So come along to the presentation and:
- See real example projects
- See how to create feasibility studies and estimates quickly and efficiently
- See real 2D construction drawings
- See finished projects
- Find out what the benefits are for you as an architect, builder or estimator.
Change the way you see SketchUp.
