A BIM data tool for all stakeholders


dRofus is the leading planning and data management solution for the global building industry

Data Centric Approach to BIM

dRofus is a unique planning, data management and BIM collaboration tool that provides all stakeholders with extensive workflow support and access to building information throughout the building lifecycle.

Unlike any other planning tool in the market, dRofus was developed directly on behalf of public building owners. Capturing client requirements (EIR), validating design solutions (BIM) against client requirements, management of public standards and equipment planning are core features in the software.

dRofus has strong ArchiCAD, Revit and IFC integration with bi-directional data sync capabilities. Model data from each discipline is captured, together with planning data, non-geometric data and documents in a centralised database accessible to all project stakeholders via the dRofus desktop client and dRofus Web.

Key Features

Data Centric Approach to BIM

Plan, create and manage building data input from every stakeholder capturing relevant building/project information for all objects in BIM, cross domain, discipline and model; including data outside of the BIM platform.

Design Integration

dRofus` advanced plug-ins to Revit and ArchiCAD provide excellent workflow support for architects and engineers. Integrate program data with design for validation of building requirements and bi-directional synchronisation between dRofus and project models.

Data Standardisation

Capture client requirements and manage facility standards across multiple projects. Room templates and global items catalogue help standardise rooms and content to kick start new projects.

Track Changes

All changes applied to dRofus are logged. The logs will show who changed what and when. Apply log notes and use changelists to communicate why changes were made. Advanced search capabilities make it easy to schedule or report relevant changes.

Reports and Exports

dRofus has over 70 built-in PDF reports and Excel exports. Our clients can also utilise XF Designer, a third party report template authoring tool, to create specialised reports of their own. We can also create custom PDF reports to fit the project/organisation requirements.

Secure and Accessible

Data is securely stored on a central server, allowing users to connect and read data regardless of their physical location. All you need is a PC and an internet connection.User access rights are controlled to ensure data security. Read and write permissions are controlled on a detailed level for all modules in dRofus.

Case Studies

A unique documentation of Building Lifecycle Intelligence™

The largest construction project on Haukeland in Norway since Sentralblokka was completed in 1983. The project started with phase one in 2011, which was completed in the autumn of 2016. Phase two will be completed by the turn of the year 2022/2023 with occupancy taking place in August 2023 with total investment costs amounting to approximately NOK 5.4 billion (USD 661 million).

The client, Helse Bergen HF, required one master asset database that would connect all data from early planning, through design, engineering and construction, and finally into operation of the Glasblokkene Trinn 2 project. In essence, a golden-thread of information that connects all project phases and stakeholders. With over 20 years of AECO industry experience, and with a strong footing in the healthcare sector, dRofus was an obvious choice to fulfil these requirements.

Queen’s Wharf

In an outstanding display of IFC collaboration and Open BIM teamwork, PDC (a division of DBM Vircon) has won first prize in the design category at the recent 2019 buildingSMART International Awards.  The award recognized PDC’s Digital Engineering team for its pioneering and innovative efforts on the $3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf project in Brisbane, Australia.

Over 16 different pieces of software, including dRofus, were deployed by 39 contributing organizations. PDC (DBM Vircon) had over 340 models under management, with 215 individual models processed weekly.
