SUperPlan is a plugin/extension for Google/Trimble SketchUp. 3D CAD systems inherently provide the size, location and other geometric property values required to automate many downstream processes, such as quantities take-off.
SUperPlan determines the type (column, slab, wall, etc.) of the modelled objects according to a user defined classification system (i.e. activity codes), currently an extended version of SMM7 - the UK RICS Standard Method of Measurement for building elements.
To integrate with existing construction planning processes, SUperPlan reads and writes data in industry standard formats such as IFC.
Many construction industry articles, products and services now include the BIM acronym. (See youtube_BIM_video for an introduction to BIM). SketchUp with SUperPlan can already participate in the government announced BIM strategy - via IFC import and export functions. Additionally, SUperPlan can add value; by classification (indentifying purpose), data validation (for example by checking for structural coherence), and scheduling (adding timing data).
See youtube_SUperPlan_Functions_video for a 9 minute overview of SUperPlan.
