An Architect’s work life can be extremely varied and in my experience a typical week can involve a sketch of a new concept, drawing and document reviews and design team discussions through to client presentations and site reviews of construction progress.
The ability to carry out a site review and to record your observations while staying safe in this dangerous environment can be quite a challenge.
In the digital age there are many tools available for the professional.
ArchDaily have put together their top 12 as follows:
- Builder’s Helper – Advanced Construction Calculator
- Construction Manager App
- BIM360 Docs
- My Measures
- ArchiReport 5
- iHandy Level Free
- Site Audit Pro
- Project Planning Pro
- Fast Concrete Pad Calculator
- Angle Meter Pro
They also reference the excellent Morpholio Trace app which I use regularly. This application, particularly on an iPad Pro, provides you with a digital trace roll and many export and printing features.
I would also recommend SG Project Pro for a great alternative to MS Project (website)
Please comment below on the apps that you would recommend.
