Create Better Room Data
Make a Better BIM
All Projects Have Room Data
Every project no matter how large or small deals with room data, even if it exists on disparate excel lists, word documents, emails and pdf’s. eRDS helps bring this information into a single source of information that’s easily understood by owners, architects, builders and trade contractors.
Designed by Professionals
eRDS is developed by industry professionals who have years of experience in the discipline. It replaces the use of standard office tools like Excel, with a purpose built organised data structure in an easy to use software environment.
- Room Data
- Environmental Conditions
- MEP Specifications
- Mechanical, Electrical, HVAC & Specialist Components
Bridges the gap between room data and BIM.
Room Data Belongs in BIM
With the use of BIM becoming ever more common on construction projects, it makes sense to consolidate room data with the 3D model so the information can be used in BIM analysis and FM applications during a buildings life-cycle
eRDS Revit Plugin
Our new Revit App provides all the functions to connect eRDS Room Data seamlessly with your Revit model. Use it to populate your room data project with validated information from the 3D model, and then when the room data is completed, update Revit with comprehensive room data and FFE parameters from eRDS.
A Single Point Of Truth.
Single Point Of Truth
eRDS cloud based software is a window into a buildings room database. As a multi-user system, it allows a wide range of professions to access room data in the knowledge that it’s the latest information. This ‘single point of truth’ allows stakeholders to share information and work collaboratively, and using reliable information that can be trusted provides the confidence to take decisions.
Room data will grow organically and change over time, so our ‘versioning’ control lets you refer back to previous versions to find out who changed what and why. By introducing a systematic approach to managing room data sheets and having a single source of information, eRDS provides an accurate status of their completeness, that informs what information is missing. Used correctly, eRDS will significantly reduce your administrative overhead.
Convenient And Efficient
Cloud Based or On Premise
eRDS cloud based solution means anyone with a connection to the internet can access the latest room data and find the information they need. Alternatively, eRDS is available as On-Premise software that can be installed and run over your own network or on a single PC.
Organised & Structured
eRDS has been designed by professionals with years of room data experience. That knowledge had been translated into a structured approach to creating room data, with the simplest and intuitive user interface possible.
Efficient collaboration is possible when the latest information is held in a single location. Our online software allows the project team to share information and take decisions with the certainty that everyone is working from the same data set.
Affordable and scalable
eRDS can be used on any sized BIM project, from single residential dwellings through to large construction redevelopments. There is no practical limitation on the amount of data or size of building, and you can use it on as many projects as you wish without any additional cost.
eRDS is a multi-user system that’s supported with tracking and auditing so you will know who changed what information. Our low-cost user pricing for cloud based eRDS means that you can add more users for the duration of a project and then scale downwards on completion. The minimum duration is for twelve months.
Our pricing is competitive whether its cloud based or on premise software. eRDS is priced by the user, and not by the size of your building project, so scaling up to meet your workload is easily accomplished. Its easy to add additional users for short-term projects or to give stakeholders and owners access to their building information.
So why not just use Excel?
Using standard office tools such as Excel, may be easy to get started, but become increasingly difficult to manage and maintain as the depth of information increases. A suitable format for one room often proves totally inadequate for others, this causes great problems and dis-satisfaction.
Difficult To Collaborate
Room data requires input from multiple disciplines, so the unwieldy multi-tab excel must be sent to several professionals to add their data. This results in numerous copies in circulation, and requires someone to take on responsibility for consolidating the various copies into a single document. And then there are the various changes and revisions that will undoubtedly occur. The outcome is never being quite sure who has got the latest up-to-date information.
A Better Way
eRDS has been designed specifically for the job! Using our software to create your room data is vastly more efficient and much easier to manage. It’s low cost will quickly provide a high return on investment by substantially reducing your administrative overhead and man-hours. With eRDS you will be able to produce reliable, up-to-date room data, and meaningful reports at the click of a button.
