Over two years ago SHP Leading Design, headquartered in Cincinnati, made a conscious decision to transition their drawings from Autodesk AutoCad Architect® to Autodesk Revit®. Now a recognized leader in Building Information Modeling (BIM), the community inspired firm chose Revit because it provides a sophisticated, data rich, hands-on tool for architects and their clients.
