dRofus is a unique planning, data management and BIM collaboration tool that provides all stakeholders with extensive workflow support and access to building information throughout the building lifecycle.
Unlike any other planning tool in the market, dRofus was designed directly on behalf of public building owners. Capturing client requirements, management of public standards across projects and equipment planning are central features in the software.
dRofus has strong ArchiCAD, Revit and IFC integration and is a tool for the whole project team, not only a tool for owners. Today dRofus is a collaboration platform used by all project stakeholders, where owner requirements are used to validate designed solutions (BIM), with building data evolving through each project stage into facilities management and operations.
Data Driven Design (DDD) is fast becoming the new paradigm and looks at BIM from a slightly different perspective, where the model is simply part of an overall Data Model.
This approach puts data at the epicenter of projects, with geometric models, non-geometric data, documents and all stakeholder inputs through all project stages feeding into the Data Model.
A key benefit of this approach is having the opportunity to build a common data environment and define what data you need, its purpose, classification and ongoing usage.
Stakeholders produce data in all shapes and sizes and just because you have data, does not mean it is good, or re-useable data – this is why dRofus is becoming an essential tool for BIM projects.
Our team of programmers are continually improving and expanding the software, working closely with our Enterprise customers and our in-house team of industry practitioners with decades of experience in project briefing, design, construction and facility management.
With offices in Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific we are a global company that provides round the clock support to our clients and have been a member of buildingSMART for over 10 years.
dRofus is headquartered in Oslo, Norway and has been part of the Nemetschek Group since 2017.
