35 Bradley Washfountain Revit Family Models - Early Bradley Innovation

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Oct 10, 2016 4:00:00 PM

Bradley Corporation pioneered and patented the washfountain concept-design in 1919.

After more than 90 years, the washfountain remains a Bradley signature product that features a variety sizes, shapes, materials and innovative electronic water saving controls.

View Washfountain Blog Article: Washfountains | What is the application?

Excerpt: Every day, we get calls from architects and engineers asking for help in deciding what washfountain to use for their project. My first question to them is always, “Where is the product going to be used, and what is the application?” Very often they haven’t really thought about the application. Factors like appearance, space available, ADA compliance, and water conservation are given more consideration than how the fixture will be used. While these other factors are important, the product specified has to consider the user.

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jun 10, 2016 12:30:00 PM

Download the Bradley Revit Lavatory - Sink Library; for the Bradley Verge LVL-Series Natural Quartz Lavatory System. The LVL provides the potential solution for fulfilling the Enhanced Reach Accessibility Requirement.

The 2009 ICC/ANSI Standards require that soap dispenser controls and faucets that serve certain accessible lavatories - larger restrooms determined by scoping such as IBC as to require an enhanced reach range - need to be installed with a reach depth of 11 inches (280mm) maximum.

Key Costs and Quality Steps for Building Revit Families

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 24, 2016 1:30:00 PM

The Bradley BIM Team maintained time and cost records for building the Bradley Revit Family Library from the summer of 2009 to December 2011.When I survey the Revit family modeling costs, relative to the processes we used to build Bradley's 1000 Revit Families; it reveals the "real value" in cost savings for each pre-built Bradley Revit Family Model.

Each pre-built, Bradley Revit model, can typically save a trained and knowledgeable BIM Manager between $150-$250 of labor costs.

Whoa! How did you arrive at that dollar value?

I arrive at this value, by combining these 2 assumptions with our 7 standard steps (below) for properly constructing a Revit family model. In fact, these are the initial steps I teach every professional; that needs to properly create Revit family models.

 Assumption #1: I set my BIM Manager costs at $75 / hour; realizing the manager has real costs for hourly wage, software, equipment and benefits. The manager should have a billable rate (cost) for creating project Revit families (project billing cost) AND company standard Revit family library (billed back as overhead to reduce future project costs). I identify these costs as an organization's BIM Assets.

Revit Family File Size | How Big is TOO BIG?

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Mar 16, 2016 5:57:00 AM

In Autodesk Revit, "the component" that you insert into a project; (like a window, door, chair, a grab bar or plumbing fixture), is defined as a Revit Family.

An AutoCAD user, may define a family as a Revit BLOCK.

Under best practices; the project's BIM Manager reviews and if necessary tries to minimize the file size of each Revit family; PRIOR to loading them into a Revit project.

Bradley understands the importance of small Revit family files sizes and the value of this Revit-BIM Manager task.

The Bradley BIM Team invests engineering time to shrink and test Bradley Revit family file size performance in real Revit projects.

Bradley Revit family tests are conducted usinng workset & non-workset based Revit projects.

Here is a short list of "Bradley Revit-BIM Family Quality Standards | Top 10 FAQs" that we use to minimize Revit family file size.
