Managing Director, AGACAD
BIM processes and their optimization; Classification systems for building information management.
As the head of AGACAD since 2007, Donatas has led its growth from a local computer-aided design reseller and consultancy into a driver of innovation on a global scale in architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) through advances in building information modelling and management (BIM) technologies.
His own areas of special expertise include optimising BIM processes and using classification systems to ensure smooth information flows over a building’s entire life. He has spoken at international conferences on BIM implementation methods, BIM project coordination and BIM project data classification. He has also shared his innovative approaches to BIM information management and exchange on his blog at www.bimaxon.com.
Donatas has helped draft and test national BIM standards in Denmark (at Cuneco) and in his home country of Lithuania (at the Digital Construction Institute, where he heads a working group to develop the national building classification structure and coding systems ensuring harmonization with the European Union).
In his continuing push to maximizing the benefits of BIM for the AEC industry, Donatas draws on a degree in civil engineering and more than 25 years of experience with related IT solutions. He has been with AGACAD since 1997. His work there to develop new CAD and later BIM technologies has always relied on close collaboration with clients in the field – analyzing their real-life processes and practices, their needs, opportunities and expectations, and how the data in their models affects decision-making, costs and quality.
That approach of “building BIM together” with practitioners worldwide and “sharing BIM advances” by turning the insights of top professionals into tools that all clients can acquire is what has enabled AGACAD to develop industry-focused solutions that create real value and make it easier to bring BIM to life. Which perfectly fits Donatas’s ambition of encouraging BIM adoption and creating tomorrow’s AEC.
