leaDE - takes care of the I in BIM

Construction is going digital! With leaDE, our platform for all construction phases, we bring the project stakeholders together and ensure a digital information workflow. Whether architect, builder, specialist engineer or fitter, everyone can contribute easily, efficiently and paperlessly at any time. The information, the heart of BIM, is collected, maintained and made available in a central location. This is the future for efficient planning, coordinated and sustainable construction, and end-to-end real estate management.

leaDE focuses on information management in the construction industry

By decoupling model and information, we have developed a central team environment for information management in BIM projects. Human errors in data entry are prevented by working against requirements. The data is always valid and up-to-date. Everyone involved in the project can do their part at any time. Invite externals to join your team for free to collaborate smoothly. Detailed visibility into all phases of construction makes construction more efficient, controlled, and reduces costly delays in information flow. Sophisticated user management ensures secure implementation of EIR and BEP requirements. Roles are assigned to receive the necessary information to plan the next step. All trades are moving closer together. There are no more data silos and duplicates, as all parties involved work centrally on the same information model. And all this without having to be BIM software specialists! The visualization of the information can be called up for individual use cases via 3D Viewer, as can the table view per component type. This creates a digital model of the planned building, to which all information on the components is linked in order to construct the structure, operate it, and dispose of or reuse materials at the end of the product life cycle.

You have as a builder,
BIM manager, property owner or
project controller the certainty,
that your project with leaDE
safe and efficient

Best for: Building owners

With leaDE, you manage and edit information in a centralized manner, thus ensuring auditable and reliable data management. From now on, you work with valid and standardized data.

Building elements
Assign properties
and at the same time
make sure that they
have correct values

Best for: Planners

Planners, architects or engineers work on a central information pool! Everyone involved in planning can incorporate their knowledge directly without having to export and import data all day long. It is always worked with the specifications of EIR and BEP. Subsequent checking and error correction is no longer necessary. In this way, external experts can also make their contribution without creating additional work internally.

For the optimal implementation
on the construction site

Information digital before
Retrieve location

Best for: Executor

The provision of the required data for prefabrication or on the construction site takes place almost exclusively by paper plan. With leaDE, everything is provided and managed digitally. All can access the same data with an Internet connection. Whether looking up information on an element in the model, reading up on technical information or calling up documentation, e.g. assembly instructions. All possible with leaDE’s collaborative approach.

leaDE manages all
Information for a
efficient operation

Best for: Asset Manager

A property consists not only of a 3D model, but to a large extent of meta information, product data, data sheets and documents. This treasure trove of information must be nurtured and cared for in order to enable forward-looking management. Up to the demolition and deconstruction. leaDE is an extensible system, and can be integrated into your existing IT landscape. In this way, the data obtained can continue to flow without seeping into the next silo.

The data is yours!

leaDE & Speckle
Why we trust in Speckle

As a cloud-based solution, Speckle provides an open data platform for the AEC industry. This enables interoperability, real-time collaboration, data management, versioning and automation using sophisticated programming interfaces.

leaDE is based on Speckle and its APIs. Thus, all data collected by leaDE is 100% available in Speckle and can be further used in this system. Both Speckle and leaDE care about how and where you store your data. We use Speckle as a backend to store component information. This means the data is yours. Speckle is openSource and can be hosted on any cloud infrastructure under the jurisdiction of your choice.

leaDE is delivered as a fully containerized application that can be deployed in any scenario your project and team require – including fully compartmentalized environments for top secret projects with no internet connection!

to use...

Load models from Revit into leaDE

The Speckle Revit Connector makes it easy to import a complete building into leaDE. A filter sets which view to work with in leaDE.

Edit EIR properties

The actual work with leaDE begins in the Viewer. Here the parameters of individual components can be edited according to access authorization and usecase. The pre-uploaded AIAs ensure typo-free entry of values and maximum efficiency in the course of the project.

leaDE Viewer

Autodesk Forge Viewer stands for best performance and functionality. It contains a number of useful functions that make daily work easier. Dividing the model into several planes, determining angles and distances or viewing the building yourself in first-person view are just some of the many options and functions provided by this viewer.

EIR Rights Management

The roles, use cases and service phases set up in the project structure can be assigned specific rights here down to the smallest parameter. For example, the owner of the project should be assigned reading rights in all use cases and service phases. The owner himself can read all parameters, but cannot edit or change them. This role is assigned e.g. to an architect or MEP planner.
