AI and BIM
Unlock Your AEC Writing Superpowers with Our AI-Powered Tools

If you’re a BIM Manager, then you know how difficult it can be to write technical documents like a BIM Execution Plan or Contract Agreement from scratch. Writing is a time-consuming process, and sometimes it’s hard to get the words just right.

With the goal of providing you with an innovative edge, Plannerly has incorporated over 1 billion data points, sourced from the AEC industry World Wide Web, into its AI tools. We are beyond thrilled to announce that these powerful Artificial Intelligence-enhanced features are now live in your Plan module!

Your new tools inside Plannerly use Artificial Intelligence (AI) 🥳

This means that they already know a lot about design and construction and they can help you create documents for the AEC industry faster, with more accuracy, and with no help from anyone else 😃

These new AI features make it easier for you to:

1) create an entirely new document using “Start with AI”

2) auto “Write My Section” to give you a starting point for a new piece of content, and

3) Correct, Expand, Simplify, and Summarize selected content at the push of a button!

Let’s take a closer look at how these features can help you unlock your writing superpowers.

1) Create an Entirely New Document Using “Start With AI” 

In the example below, we simply provide a title and description and the AI creates the complete document for us:

The “Start with AI” feature generates a starting point for any technical document like a custom Contract Agreement or even a Risk Management Plan.

Here are the steps we take:

1) In a new document tab, select “Start with AI”:

Use AI for creating your BIM contract documents

2) All you need to do is provide the Title and a description; your AI tools will do the rest!

Create an outline or complete AEC document

3) Your document is created using AI – with complete with categories, descriptions, sections, tables, bulleted lists etc. – simply make your edits and request e-signatures using the Plannerly File Manager:

Stop wasting time and energy trying to generate content from scratch; let our AI do the heavy lifting for you!

With the help of AI, it automatically generates a professional structure and content tailored to match your needs.

You’ll also have the freedom to customize this material by adding extra sections or making any necessary tweaks – all within record time, so you can save effort while creating an impressive document with greater confidence!

2) Auto “Write My Section” To Give You A Starting Point 

If you need help writing a specific section, use the “Write My Section” button.

The “Write my section” option rapidly generates full Plan Section content based on the existing document structure and details.

All you need to do is enter a Section Title and Description for the topic of interest, click the “Write my section” button (in the AI tools drop-down) and your AI tool will automatically generate your section!

3) Correct, Expand, Simplify, And Summarize Selected Content 

We all make mistakes from time to time, but with the help of new AI tools, you can now utilize even more power to auto-correct your content, expand it where necessary, simplify complex phrases, and summarize entire sections in a plan.

These tools provide options to:

  • Correct: eliminate typos, improve grammar/clarity, and ensure your content sounds natural with just a push of a button!
  • Expand: take your initial idea to new heights without breaking a sweat! Just press the “Expand” button and watch as your initial idea is magnified!
  • Simplify: inevitably, some of the content inside a plan may be written in complex language that’s hard to understand. Let AI help you simplify it so everyone can follow along!
  • Summarize: sometimes, condensing a section of content into a shorter summary may be helpful. With the “Summarize” button, let AI do all the hard work to place a summary of the selected content at the bottom of the plan section.

You will be writing superior technical documents in record time and you’ll be more confident presenting them to colleagues or clients.
