The revolutionary BIM-enabled solution for door openings continues to roll out features for information sharing and collaboration for the design, construction and facility management process.
ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in access solutions, is pleased to announce the latest integrations for Openings Studio, their industry-leading collaboration and management software for door openings, with PlanGrid and Procore construction and project management programs.
The ability to connect the Openings Studio platform with Procore and PlanGrid allows for a more effective and efficient execution of the punch and remediation processes. This is representative of the ongoing investment the ASSA ABLOY team has in easing day-to-day challenges, specifically for those in the field that are trying to complete installation, punch and maintenance of doors, frames and hardware.
“We want our customers to have access to critical door opening information, where and when they need it, and in the platform of their choice. We’ve streamlined the collection of door information in the Openings Studio mobile app and being able to provide access to the data brings us closer to that goal,” said John Knipper, Director of Construction and Distribution Services, ASSA ABLOY.
These latest integrations leverage the power of Openings Studio mobile applications to capture detailed door and hardware installation issues, photos, voice and video memos, and corrective action reports and then seamlessly move that information into two of the most widely used BIM construction management programs. The combined solution is much more extensive than a simple flag and checkmark verification of the opening.
The data exports will enable architects and contractors to review and share door, hardware and access control opening information collected during the installation and punch phases of building construction. Additionally, a dedicated and certified professional services team is available to provide onsite services including project punch outs, fire door inspections, site verification surveys, and access control security coordination.
“The inclusive, end-to-end Openings Studio software suite allows clients to not only envision the design of their openings, but also to maintain quality control throughout the construction process into facility management. Plus, with our team supporting them along the way, they can be assured their project will be completed with accurate and useful information in place for the life of the building,” said Knipper.
ASSA ABLOY is the only door and hardware company on the market with an add-in for both Autodesk® Revit® and Graphisoft® ARCHICAD®. The integration with PlanGrid and Procore solidifies the position of ASSA ABLOY as a major provider of door opening software solutions for architects, contractors, and owners.
