The 8 award

The Mat d’Or have become in 4 years a major event in the construction sector. Organized by SAGERET in partnership with CAPEB and the Bâtiment Artisanal, the Mat d´Or reward the best equipment and tools dedicated to construction professionals. Each year, in January, nearly 250,000 companies and 30,000 specifiers (architects, project managers, design offices, economists, interior designers) are invited to recommend the equipment and the tools.
This Label testifies to the recognition of the market.

As part of the 2020 edition, the label “Elected Innovation by Construction Experts” was awarded to the MéthoCAD software for the 2 new products that have emerged:

Médailles de MéthoCAD

The new MethoCAD-BIM module developed in the environment of the AutoDesk software, REVIT, makes it possible to create the site installation plan in 3D in the digital model of the building produced in Revit by the architect.


As part of its business services activity for the creation of videos presenting projects and phasing of works, CBS now offers the production of high-quality images of site installation but also interactive site visits based on Revit models.

This new range of software requires perfect mastery of their use and the creation of projects is long and tedious. In addition, projects requiring the use of such tools in the company are not necessarily common. As a result, the company’s investment in acquiring such software and hardware and hiring a skilled workforce is not justified. It therefore appeared appropriate for the company CBS to offer companies the realization of such projects.

The Revit digital mockup is completed with features for interactive animation. We can thus move in real time in the model, move objects such as turning the boom of the crane. The objectives are multiple, to present the choices made to the customer, to better understand the construction difficulties, to foresee the appropriate execution methods, to facilitate the identification and therefore the control of the various security risks.
