CBI - 2015 IBC Pro
The world's most powerful, innovative and the easiest construction
building codes checking tool that enables the highest efficiency and
ease in tracking projects for code compliance, allowing projects to
be completed in a timely and cost-effective manner, while maintaining
the degree of protection and life safety intended by the applicable
This innovative software solution provides designers with the capability
to both conduct a preliminary IBC code review during the initial phases
of a project, and evaluate multiple code options and decisions well
before the expense of developing drawings. During preliminary and final
reviews, designers are lead through a simple, detailed and well-organized
code review that includes references to the actual IBC code sections.
The program analyzes the user's input and renders "Accepted" or "Failed"
status for decisions, along with the reason for not accepting the provided
information. Detailed reports are easily created for submission to the
respective permitting authority .
The only intelligent building code checking solution
in today's market, it makes manual reviews a thing of the past!
the existence of blueprints nearly 300 years ago, the construction industry
has used paper and pencils to do its job. While a substantial number of progressive
Architects, Engineers, Contractors and Consultants have been using computer-aided
technologies on their projects for a few years, the plan review and building
code compliance review process has, unfortunately, stayed pretty much the
Nevertheless, when it comes to code checking, these highly complex models
created by thousands of firms, in most cases, have to be printed out on
paper or digitally uploaded to a remote server or must be virtually simulated
in order for code officials to manually review, mark-up, or digitally insert
comments using an overlay technology.
The manual approach to code checking is tedious, inconsistent, sometimes inaccurate, slow, rather costly and inevitably subjective, as analysts impose their own understanding of the code issues in their personal review.
A true automation of the actual code checking process achieves a significant
improvement in productivity in the planning and code review phases for the
entire building industry.
Until OptaSoft's revolutionary approach, solutions to the code checking
compliance problem have been ineffective and one dimensional. The primary
purpose of former solutions was to simply manage documents in a framework
designed to change the embodiment of the materials to be reviewed (blueprints).
They were deployed in the form of creating code studies, hosting a web-enabled
service to submit plans for manual review, offering databases of building
codes for electronic access, modeling the design in 2D, 3D, 4D, 5D, 6D or
7D to visualize, inserting mark-ups and comments on pdf drawings and comparing
drawings side-by-side using digital overlay.
All former solutions lead to increased challenges with implementation and
higher overall cost, while failing to address the actual task of "code checking".
Why is our innovative software one solution that stands
above the rest?
100% manipulation proof
Our innovative solution utilizes C++ frame work object oriented technology.
An object is a "black box/module" that receives and sends messages that includes
the actual building codes and users input. As a result, the permit issuing
authorities, design professionals and consultants enjoy a peace of mind that
advanced users (SYSDBA or DBA) are unable to manipulate the generated compliance
results and/or reports. Show Me
Easy to use
Commercial Building Inspector is so smart and easy, the straightforwardness
of the software leaves little necessity for training. The software architecture
comprise of components that includes smart independent channels of building
code analysis integrated with the properties of other components and forms
a relationship that gives you a world class efficient solution.
Solution at glance
OptaSoft’s Commercial Building Inspector software is completely modular,
which provides two advantages. First, more modules can be added after
the initial implementation to improve functionality. Second, the system
is completely expandable to meet future needs.
86 smart and unique building codes compliance modules, which make a
solid foundation to streamline any commercial building plan review process.
Each module is based upon a specific 2015 International Building Code
to provide accurate and consistent review results while reinforcing
the educational level of the user, allowing users to operate at a more
efficient and reliable level.
the process, increase your plan review accuracy and achieve
up to 95% review time savings
Commercial Building Inspector® is a tool that automates
the more mundane and routine design tasks associated with code checking,
allowing all concerned to focus their expertise toward creating a more
efficient and sustainable built environment.
Commercial Building Inspector® allows
users to capture, analyze building codes parameters and generates
compliance status reports prior to plans submittals (QA & QC). Such
obtained results are the basis of the permit issuing authority compliance
decision. Best of all, it allows for early submission, preliminary
project review with code compliance feedback, more accurate final
submittals by the design professionals and facilitates faster review
times (Up to 95%). It also fits seamlessly within an organization's
existing technology architecture that integrates granular permit
data from source systems and links the database warehouse with rich
Once the plan has been submitted for review to the permit issuing authority,
the permit issuing authority can utilize the saved software project's
data file to determine whether the plan are building codes compliant
or easily guide the project to a compliance status.
