HiCAD: Accourding to Van Hoesel, the best software for integrated design and productiongrated design and production

Van Hoesel is increasingly confronted with BIM methodologies. However, the façade builder lacked software that could control both the design and the control of the production process. After an intensive test phase with HiCAD from ISD Group, Van Hoesel was convinced.


Van Hoesel has experimented with new software before, even up to the operational phase. The software was sold in a certain way at the front end, but in practice turned out not to work at all. On the advice of another organisation, Van Hoesel investigated the possibilities of HiCAD and tested the software extensively before implementation.

Two worlds combined

According to Van Hoesel, what is remarkable about HiCAD is the good combination of the mechanical and the structural aspects. HiCAD unites both worlds in one package. A direct link with LogiKal ensures that, if something is changed in one place, these changes are automatically synchronised in HiCAD.

Flexible package

According to Van Hoesel, the flexibility of HiCAD is also enormous. It is possible to customise the software, and the excellent instructions from the specialists at ISD play an important role in this. After a six-month test phase, Van Hoesel is convinced of the qualities of HiCAD and ISD as a partner in the process.
