Architectural design firm’s custom ADT implementation and training ensured rapid adoption and productivity gains.

Avatech Solutions, the nation’s leading provider of design automation tools, training, integration services, and technical support, today announced that Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas + Company (HEWV), a national architectural design firm, has implemented Autodesk Architectural Desktop (ADT) throughout its firm. Avatech Solutions assisted the design firm with its 3D software design upgrade and provided custom training increasing design efficiencies and improving design quality, with minimum downtime and little or no impact to existing project timelines.

When HEWV planned to make the transition from 2D to 3D design software, it looked to long-time partner, Avatech Solutions, which performed a thorough needs assessment and recommended Autodesk Architectural Desktop. After implementing a customized version of the software, Avatech experts automated ADT configurations by designing automatic layering and linking user profiles to common configuration files. They also created a custom symbol library and programmed custom macros to enable one-touch plotting. To ensure quick integration with all staff, Avatech delivered a tiered, on-site training program for managers, power users and everyday users. HEWV’s new application is supported via Avatech’s national support center.
