“Thanks to Synchro challenge, we better understand the building process of construction and the use of safety equipment on site. This challenge helped us to improve our scheduling skills; we hope that our work motivates other students and professionals to start using 4D modelling.” Pavol Mayer and David Sandor, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava

"4D scheduling proved extremely valuable. It took two of the project’s most unique and complicated scenarios, scenarios that would have been extremely difficult to communicate about during construction coordination meetings, and provided an efficient means to present all relevant details in a short 1.5-minute animation.”  The University of Texas at Austin team
