“MagiCAD brought more efficiency to our design”

Multinational COWI Group has made a remarkable agreement on MagiCAD software: its offices in Norway, Denmark and Lithuania use MagiCAD in their building services design.

Ingrid Alvsåker, Senior engineer, COWI AS, Norway:

“We use MagiCAD in building services design. We wanted to have a program that is fully AutoCAD compatible and with 3D construction for piping, HVAC and electrical. The collision control, built-in calculation functions, as well as adaptation to fit the Norwegian rules and regulations, also made the choice easy.”

COWI AS has followed closely the development of the IFC format, and sees the IFC functionality as another strong argument for MagiCAD.

Jørgen Emborg, IT Manager, COWI A/S, Denmark:

”The reason for us choosing MagiCAD is that it is a mature product, which we have been using with positive results in all three countries. The software provides a solution for generating traditional drawings according to the relevant national standards, and enables us to work more efficiently using 3D models and the calculations directly on the model. Furthermore, we have positive experiences with the support organization as well as with the possibilities to influence on the direction where the software is developed. We believe that MagiCAD will continue to be a top-of-the-class system, enabling us to work effectively internally as well as with the partners that are using other software tools.”

Saulius Mikaliunas, Head of Division, COWI Baltic, Lithuania:

”We have just started using MagiCAD and the first impression is that MagiCAD eases our work and saves us a lot of time. We are very happy with the MagiCAD HVAC solutions.”
