Transforming Detail Management at Studio W with Pirros

Studio W is a renowned design firm based on the West coast. Studio W is a full-service architecture, interiors and planning firm with thriving public and private education, civic, commercial and retail markets throughout California.

Challenges Faced

Studio W grappled with issues around detail management in Revit. Architects often asked, “Do you know where I can find this detail?” or “Do we have a detail for this?” They previously tried using Revit files and templates but faced limitations in searchability, maintenance, and ease-of-use. Adriana was in search of a solution that could cater to various needs, including:

  1. Searchability
  2. Confidentiality
  3. Ease-of-use
  4. Revit Interface Compatibility
  5. User adoption within Studio W
  6. Streamlined onboarding
  7. Long-term scalability

The Solution

Pirros provided Studio W with an integrated detail management platform that hit every checkbox. From a seamless onboarding experience to robust Revit interface capabilities, Pirros resolved their challenges effectively.

The objectives achieved by adopting Pirros were as follows: 

For Adriana:

  • End of Repetitive Queries: Adriana no longer receives continuous questions about the whereabouts of specific details.

For the Team:

  • Instant Searchable Library: New staff now has an instant, searchable library to tap into, providing a strong starting point.
  • Future-Proof: Designed to scale along with Studio W’s growing needs.
  • Seamless Experience: The account setup was straightforward, and Pirros provided excellent data and transparency throughout the process.
