Architectural Firms Collaborate Virtually, Avoid $90,000 in Hardware and Travel Costs
4-page Case Study posted: 06/03/2011 Views: 1293

Zeidler Partnership Architects in Toronto, Canada, partnered with Snøhetta New York to win the bid for a high-profile Toronto project that had a tight budget and an ambitious schedule. The firms needed a fluid way for architects in New York City and Toronto to work together on the building model. Rather than ship huge data files across a wide-area network, Zeidler decided to keep all building data on one server in its Toronto office and create virtual desktops that architects would use to share models. Zeidler used Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 with Service Pack 1 for its virtualization software. The virtual desktop solution is yielding seamless collaboration among all team members, and Zeidler avoided spending U.S.$50,000 on hardware and $40,000 on travel. Ultimately, Zeidler foresees offering new professional services and virtual desktop savings growing to $80,000 annually.
