Note: GBuilder creates a building
information model (BIM) of
projects and apartments. The BIM
model is used as a basis for
other processes such as creation
of room cards and 3D models.
Room cards include the rooms,
equipment, and surfaces.
Measurements defined for the
BIM model are saved to the
system as defined. For example,
floors are priced per m2.
You can add user groups to the project and apartments and
define the permitted level of access for each group.
You can set on email notifications to allow comments and discussions
in GBuilder program to be also viewed as emails.

You can send messages to individual customers as well as group messages to all users. All comments
and discussions are tracked and visible on a room/space level, which helps ensure up-to-date
information is available and stored in the right place.
Attachment can be viewed on the construction site under the apartment information.
You can save and view attachments on apartment or project level. Attachments can be made public or
they can be restricted so only you can view them. PDF attachments can be viewed with the program.
Printing options from GBuilder are extensive, as all measurements and areas are defined in the system
