Monroe, Louisiana, United States
For the Louisiana Delta Community College, a design-build project including a
new 135,000-square-foot facility, Architecture+ used BIM to demonstrate the
design intent in a manner that the owner could fully grasp. Bentley Architecture
was used to build a model of the project and extract plans, sections, and interior
and exterior elevations.
The model and extractions were studied to determine the best location and
use of materials. The model provided the necessary flexibility to view specific
areas from any location. Using BIM saved time during schematic design. As
changes were made to the design components, all related 2D drawings were

The goal of this project was to accurately record space data throughout
Barclays’ U.K. branch network of 1,733 properties and be able to track a
number of new components in the property portfolio based on the outsourced
architects’ CAD drawings.
Using Project Wise and Bentley Facilities linked to a relational database,
Barclays can now measure the return on investment in space in its various
properties; perform better future forecasting, budgeting, and planning; better
understand the ratio of customer space, back-office space, and other bank
areas; and free up space by knowing where potential disposable areas are.
