  1. 1. Founded in February 1995, Applecore Designs Limited has over twenty years’ experience being at the forefront of implementing innovative design software and solutions for the construction industry. A family-run company since its inception, we have grown to become internationally recognised, with an ever-growing number of clients across the UK and Europe. We place great emphasis on establishing and maintaining a close working relationship with clients in the UK and recognise the importance of providing a professional and efficient ongoing service. We aim to provide a fast and personalised response to the needs of the small to medium sized design studio.

  3. 3. TRAININGANDIMPLEMENTATION For studios with multiple teams considering a move to model based design and BIM authoring, we recommend a Pilot Project. This will allow you to assess the changes to your studio’s workflow, internal processes, collaboration and technology. Our bespoke Pilot Projects can be tailored to a design team dedicated to undertaking a project in ARCHICAD, developing skills and assessing outcomes. We have developed a number of training and coaching courses designed specifically for operatives and managers to aid the process. “Pilot Projects are a low risk evaluation for design teams of five or more” How do we know if a move to model based design is right for us? 90 day use of ARCHICAD, BIM Server and BIMx Comprehensive training (off-site or on-site) Bespoke project template file Rapid 2D detailing library Support and implementation Discover how Applecore Designs can improve your productivity, visit 7
  4. 4. TRAININGANDIMPLEMENTATION Applecore Designs has developed corebadges, a way to keep track of your learning and development in a number of areas, communicating your achievements as your progress. Whereas training courses may issue a certificate of attendance, these virtual badges keep a record of milestones and verify your skills and expertise. Not only can you keep track of any formal training you have completed, but you can also keep a record of key skills that you have achieved and share your achievements on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. “corebadges can have a significant impact, can be used to motivate learning and signal achievement” How do we track our progress? Bronze, silver and gold leaf awards Capture accomplishments and competencies Earn and display badges across the web Identify and assess learning outcomes for further study Discover how Applecore Designs can improve your productivity, visit 9
  5. 5. CONSULTANCY Templates can be used across all of your projects, ensuring consistency in your brand and drawings, whilst also maintaining creativity. Instead of developing a new project file every time, you can reuse a template and simply change the desired information on the fly. This boosts efficiency across your studio at every level, allowing you to focus on what you do best — design. We can assist your studio in developing project templates to your own specification, either during implementation or through further consultancy. “In ensuring efficiency and consistency throughout the design team, having a good project template is essential” How can we work smarter and improve productivity? “Starter” template for all Applecore customers Efficiency and consistency ARCHICAD implementation with your office standards Maintained and updated for the latest versions On-going development Discover how Applecore Designs can improve your productivity, visit 11

Whether you need images of a proposed new development for a presentation, help with a planning application, digital models for marketing purposes, or data rich information for the BIM process, we have the knowledge and experience to deliver your requirements. “In addition to the design model, we can supply a complimentary BIMx file for your clients to explore in 3D” Where do we obtain 3D modelling services?
