Kuwait-based construction company, Kharafi National, has boosted the return on investment for its MEP contract at Dubai Festival City after using AutoDesk's Building System Software.
With the system, the company was able to reduce the time it took to draft each drawing required for the project as well as produce clear and well-coordinated designs.
The system also helped to significantly reduce labour costs and increase efficiency, resulting in a 144% return on investment.
"We are pleased to note that Kharafi National has been able to achieve its set objectives at Dubai Festival City using AutoDesk Building Systems," said Ahmad Al Jassim, country sales manager, AutoDesk Middle East.
"For a project of the scale of Dubai Festival City, it is imperative to have an advanced solution to streamline operations and maximise productivity and efficiency to ensure that the project is completed on schedule."
AutoDesk Building Systems is the AutoCAD software-based building design and construction documentation application for MEP engineers, designers and drafters that helps improve productivity, accuracy and coordination.
"With Building Systems' powerful visual design coordination capabilities, we were able to lay out the extremely complicated mechanical rooms easily, knowing ahead of time whether there was an interference. It was also a lot easier for us to coordinate the plant and mechanical rooms," said Jean Abi Aad, corporate engineering manager for the engineering services department at Kharafi National.
