Perfect BIM Workflow for Elevators

DigiPara Elevatorarchitect offers Architects the perfect BIM workflow. It gives you an overview of the installed elevators and makes installation suggestions. 

DigiPara Elevatorarchitect has a wide range of common elevator types and sizes. It includes the global, European, American and Asian series from the main elevator companies. There are more than 100,000 combinations of car sizes, payloads, heights or speeds available.

Determine the Building Location

You define the location of the building, Digipara Elevatorarchitect knows which elevators and producers can be installed in this location. 

Define Bottom and Top Floor

DigiPara Elevatorarchitect works inside of Autodesk Revit: Floor distances and designations are taken directly from the building BIM model. You only need to select the lowest and highest floor, suitable solutions are suggested to you.

Choose between Schindler, Thyssenkrupp and others

You only need to compare and select the desired manufacturer and the program installs the correct shaft dimensions in your building model.

When you need to increase the floor distances and the previously proposed elevator no longer fits, then DigiPara Elevatorarchitect suggests an alternative solution.

Add a Simpified BIM Model (LOD 100)

For all included elevator series, a simplified BIM model can be installed. This BIM model comes with a Level Of Detail (LOD) that corresponds to the BIM forum specification LOD 100.

To reduce the amount of information - especially in pre-planning  -  the simplified BIM model just includes the shaft dimensions, cabins and doors. The advantage of this LOD 100 model is that it can be updated in seconds. This allows to adapt to new building situations like additional floors or services.

Install a Complete BIM Model (LOD 300)

When required, you can, for some elevator series, install a complete BIM model with all the important elevator details. It corresponds the BIM Forum Specifikation of LOD 300.

To allow this, we have connected DigiPara Elevatorarchitect with online servers of various elevator manufacturers. These elevator manufacturers maintain the server together with their ordering systems, like SAP. This makes sure that you always get the correct and up-to-date elevator model.

“Request a Quote” functionality

Elevatorarchitect offers the "Request a Quote" functionality. You may request an individual quote for your project from the responsible elevator vendor by just one click.

Contact the right Sales Rep in your Location

Digipara Elevatorarchitect knows the important elevator company contacts and vertical transporation consultants. Depending on the installation location of the building, architects can quickly and directly access the appropriate people for help.

Certified Elevator Series

Digipara has been in the elevator industry for almost 20 years and is in contact with all the major elevator manufacturers.

In 2013, the elevator series from Thyssenkrupp CENE (for Europe) and Schindler 7000 TRD (Top Range Division, global product) were certified. Certification means even more security in the scheduling of elevators. Other series and manufacturers are currently being developed or are in planning.

Customer Opinions

"We have tested DigiPara Elevatorarchitect with our BIM processes. It makes sense to determine the valid shaft dimensions as it automatically generates the required elevator families.

One of the program highlights are "Full ThyssenKrupp BIM model" elevators as all the elevator component details are visible."

Florian Binder, BIM Coordinator at Ed. Züblin AG
