Delta community college
Monroe, Louisiana, United States
For the Louisiana Delta community college, a design-build project including
a new 135,000-square-foot facility, Architecture+ used Building Information
Modeling (BIM) to demonstrate the design intent in a manner that the owner
could fully grasp. Bentley Architecture was used to build a model of the
project and extract plans, sections, and interior and exterior elevations.
The model and extractions were studied to determine the best location and
use of materials. The model provided the necessary flexibility to view specific
areas from any location. Using BIM saved time during schematic design. As
changes were made to the design components, all related 2D drawings were

Marion State Bank, Farmerville Branch
Farmerville, Louisiana, United States
the new Farmerville branch of Marion State Bank, union Parish’s oldest
bank, is located in a small rural community located on Lake D’Arbonne in the
piney forest and rolling hills of Louisiana. Marion State Bank marked its 100th
anniversary by breaking ground on this new banking branch.
Project Wise decreased the time needed to transfer files among team
members and reduced risk by ensuring outdated information would not re-enter the workflow. The integration of all file types in one location allowed
all users to access any aspect of the project quickly and easily. The firm’s
experience using Bentley Architecture in this project has saved it time and
money on the initial design of a subsequent project.
