Win with better design and preconstruction decisions
Join is a platform that enables teams to make better design decisions around materials, means, and methods. By using technology to connect projects and people to supplier expertise, we can unlock dramatic improvements in outcomes and deliver buildings that owners love.
Streamline Your Workflow
Teams engaged in value optimization are under pressure to deliver timely and thoroughly vetted decisions. Join captures the record of value-related options, allowing you to streamline ideation, evaluation and presentation to decision makers. With Join, you can collaborate with more experts while remaining clear about project priorities, the timeline for decisions and secondary effects of any changes to the project.
More answers to "What can we do?"
Join considers each building’s unique requirements, then searches for and suggests manufactured products and materials that can improve the project. You can suggest these ideas to project partners, assign them for further evaluation, and connect to manufacturer product specialists directly through Join to further the dialog.
Connect your data
Join takes in project information through BIM models, written specifications, and estimates and standardizes that data for value optimization. Join’s recommendation platform learns from your past projects so you can leverage historical information to guide current projects. More importantly, you can present that information to your customers to quantify how you can add value to their projects.
How Join works
BQL: The Building Query Language
One of the technologies powering Join is BQL, the Building Query Language. BQL is like SQL, but for building data. We developed BQL to repeatably and efficiently extract targeted information from BIM data and released a preview inside Retriever, a Revit plugin.
