Spring 1994 Connecting It All Together
  IGUG News
The International Graphics Users Group

The article reviewed the opportunities for establishing linkages between CADD drawings, specifications and cost estimates. The benefits for linking drawings and specifications were illustrated with the MASTERKEY/ConDoc for CADD application, available from the American Institute of Architects. The issues of quantity extraction from CADD drawings were reviewed and the features of QUANTO, a quantity extraction application were explained.

June 1993 Computerizing the Office - Planning for the 21st Century
  Architectural Record

To survive in the architectural profession requires changes to the way architects practice. This article reviewed the financial business plan, the education system, office staff organization and the technology implementation plan of Lord, Aeck & Sargent to implement and successfully utilize computer technologies.

July/August 1993 ARCHITECTURE 2001 : A Perspective on the Future
  AIA Atlanta Newsletter
Technology Issue

The article emphasizes the importance of the Architect a becoming the master of information management. The future of design tools to conceive, visualize, document and present architectural solutions were explored. The importance of multi-disciplinary team communications was illustrated to promote integrated documents.

October 1990 Networking with PC MicroStation and Novell
  International Graphics Users Group
Intergraph's Fall Conference
New Orleans, Louisiana

This paper discusses the file management procedures required to successfully manage PC MicroStation drawing files across a Novell network. It defines a directory and file naming system used to store/retrieve drawings and relate them to projects and contract documents. A "check in" and "check out" procedure is technically outlined illustrating file management requirements for retrieving a drawing to a local PC for use and returning it when done.

August 1988 Techniques for Using Intergraph Application Software to Assist the Architect with the Design Process
  International Graphics Users Group
Intergraph's Fall Conference
Las Vegas, Nevada

This paper outlines techniques developed for using Intergraph's applications software STPL - Strategic Planning, APDP - Architectural Production Drawing Package and AMOD - Architectural Modeling in the early phases of the architectural design process. The techniques begin with illustrating schematic design with block planning from building program information. The process continues through floor plan layout and building modeling to study composition and site contextual fit. Preliminary costing is calculated based on building square footage and function extracted from the project database.

August 1985 Demonstrated Cost Avoidance through Building Energy Simulations and Economic Analysis
  Building Energy Simulation Conference
U.S. Department of Energy Passive Solar Division
Seattle, Washington

Co-Authors... Stephen P. Kimsey, AIA and Andrew T Smith
The paper discusses the effectiveness of energy cost avoidance consulting services for architects and engineers. Significant savings in both energy operating costs and construction costs are demonstrated through comparative analysis of alternative Energy Conservation Measures (ECM's). Case studies applying the DOE-2 building energy simulation program, SUMMARY (a micro-based post processor for DOE-2) and MECON (micro-based economic analysis program) are presented.
