Moriyama & Teshima is a collaborative studio of architects and planners who work to create visionary projects for their end users. Their recent Windsor City Hall project, a joint-venture with Architettura, brought two core challenges to the forefront: communication across multiple team members and organization and sharing of complex BIM models. With Moriyama & Teshima in Toronto and Architecttura headquartered in Windsor, the project required a tool that could provide a central project repository, communication center, and allow the two design teams to view, review, and collaborate across their Revit models:

“Being a BIM project, it was necessary to have joint access to our BIM model. We didn’t have the infrastructure set up to accommodate this kind of joint-venture prior to this project,” explained Claudia Cozzitorto, BIM Director at Moriyama & Teshima, “We needed to address and determine how we were going to handle communication being split between two offices.”

Watch to learn how these two design studios used collaborative cloud technology to bridge gaps inherent in working with multiple teams in various locations:

A360 allowed both Moriyama & Teshima and Architecttura to work in real-time as one design team. Even team members who are non-Revit users could access the model through A360 without fear of damaging the model or making modifications unintentionally.

Windsor City Hall is designed to be open and inviting to the public.  The first level and the second level are articulated with this openness through the use of glass,” explains Cozzitorto.

Joint-venture projects are becoming increasingly common and adding the complexity of BIM models makes having a centralized location for collaboration essential. Learn more about using A360 for collaborative projects, or sign up for a free trial to get started today.
