About ArCADiasoft company
ArCADiasoft (formerly INTERsoft) came into being in Łódź in mid-1997. Its founder Jarosław Chudzik has obtained his MSc degree in Construction from Łódź University of Technology.
Shortly after his graduation, Jarosław Chudzik moved to Germany and started a traineeship at Institut für Baumechanik und Numerische Mechanik (Universität Hannover) under professor Erwin Stein, with the intention of writing his doctoral thesis. Tempted by an offer from mb programme, one of the biggest German IT companies dealing in the field of construction engineering, which was searching for a construction engineer with the knowledge of computer programming languages at that time, he started working in the Software Development department. After 10 years, he returned to Poland and made use of the experience gained in Germany in order to found a company, which turned out to rapidly achieve financial success. It later allowed for the creation of the comprehensive, object-oriented ArCADia BIM system – the company’s flagship product that enables various designers to cooperate among their locations.
Today, ArCADiasoft Chudzik sp. j. is the biggest Polish manufacturer of software for building engineering. Its programs are sold in Poland, as well as in Austria, Croatia, the UK, Germany, Italy, Russia and Malaysia.
The programs are written in the BIM technology and they include modules for architecture, constructions and installations. The company has got its own distribution network and uses it to sell its author’s programs and also other manufacturers’ programs, such as IntelliCAD, whose distribution is allowed by membership in the IntelliCAD Technology Consortium, and ArCon, among others.
ArCADiasoft also produces programs on request, and specialises in writing software for building engineering, while applying its IT expertise. We have cooperated with companies such as: Henkel, BALMA, PAROC, Sanitec and Saint-Gobain.
The flagship of the Company’s offer is the object-oriented ArCADia BIM system. It is a user-friendly tool for comprehensive calculation/graphics support of a building engineering design process, which allows communication between individual fields, including collision detecting.
The modular structure of the system also enables to treat ArCADia as a set of independent calculation/graphics programs intended for building industry fields (architecture, construction and installations). The heart of the whole system is the START module. It allows to design building storeys and to view, in the object-oriented way, any field design made in the ArCADia system. The ArCADia-START module contains its own intuitive graphical editor (in 2 versions), or alternatively it enables the installation of the ArCADia BIM system as an overlay on programs such as AutoCAD. It is necessary to possess the ArCADia-START module in order to make the field modules work. Of course, for field designs it is necessary to previously make an architectural design. This possibility is ensured by the ArCADia-START module in connection with the ArCADia-ARCHITECTURE module or data import through an IFC interface from programs such as ArchiCAD, Allplan or Revit.
