A Builders Work tool that enables BIM workflow with other parties. It ensures the needed communication with architects and structural engineers for provisions for ducts, pipes, cable trays or any other containment that passes through a wall, roof, slab or similar. The automatic provision for voids tool creates provisions based on the project settings.
If there is a need for communication around the provisions, architects and structural engineers can run the free of charge tool, Provision for Void Manager, to approve or deny the provisions. Provision for Void Manager collects all information in a small xml file that can be sent back and forth between the stakeholders. When everything has been checked, the tool cuts the holes. In addition, the Provision for Void Manager automatically alerts the user whenever a hole or provision is changed in size or position, or if one of them is deleted.
