“With the rapid increase of BIM workflows being utilised on commercial projects, Dulux was keen to develop tools that enabled our products to be selected and documented ‘within’ BIM design platforms, starting with Revit. In seeking a BIM solutions provider, Dulux sought advice from experts within the design community and IGS was recommended by a number of industry leaders.
From the outset, IGS understood our intention to go beyond just creating ‘BIM paint files’ and break new ground in how colour and paint could be incorporated into projects using BIM authoring software. IGS conceived the idea of creating a user-friendly ‘pick and paint’ add-in that mimicked the Dulux online ‘Colour Atlas’ with an interface that painted surfaces in the project model and embedded key data that allowed immediate scheduling. Importantly, IGS was able to produce a well thought out and costed scope of works with clear milestones and timelines.
Since its release, numerous clients have remarked that the ‘Colour Atlas’ add-in is a highly valuable, multi-faceted design and documentation tool that has changed the way they select and specify paint in Revit.
IGS have been an attentive, enthusiastic partner and on hand to provide advice and support where needed. We would highly recommend IGS as a creator of BIM solutions and BIM strategy to others, as we have already done on a number of occasions.”
