Visualizing Construction & Scaffold Management with Navisworks and Avontus Designer®


Originally posted on Monday, June 30, 2014

Autodesk® Navisworks® is an industry favorite for visualizing construction, maintenance, and management of complex facilities. Navisworks is used to design and build commercial projects from small chemical plants to large LNG facilities, and everything in between. Avontus is pleased to announce that you can now also manage your scaffolding directly within Navisworks Simulate®, Navisworks Manage®, and Navisworks Freedom®. Both the 2014 and 2015 versions of Navisworks are supported.


Scaffolds are inserted into Navisworks and easily moved around in order confirm size and placement and detect collisions with other structures.


The display of individual scaffolds can be toggled on/off and tied to erection and dismantle dates using Naviswork’s TimeLiner 4D Simulation, which can animate the lifecycle of the project.

“Our continued investment and vision into the BIM (building information management) space shines with Navisworks. Our customer base can expect to see further integration with BIM visualization software from Bentley Systems and Intergraph,” says Brian Webb, CEO and Founder of Avontus.

Our employees are highly-skilled computer and scaffolding business professionals who understand big-picture problem solving, team project management, and the latest technology.
