Other Productivity Enhancements
See list below
CodeBook is an architectural productivity tool that provides extensive benefits to both the architect and other members of the design team and building contractor throughout the design and construction phases of the project.
The resulting coordinated building model comprising both the graphical cad model and a database of all the room data and equipment requirements of the project form an excellent source of data for an FM model or the building operators.
The CodeBook database is open source, the data is easily usable and joined with other data sources. The software is licenced, not the data the user creates. This allows it to be part of an integrated building information model, accessible to the entire design team.
