Description

Description

In this class, we will focus on the connection between the BIM model and project specifications. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then your specifications are a picture of your construction documents. Yet these two document types are typically done separately and without any automated coordination, requiring users to manually assure that the objects represented in the model actually are correctly represented in the specifications. We will go through the process of setting up the coordination environment, as well as the scenario of coordination with those outside your office environment who may be off your company network. We will review the process of automating and controlling the flow of information and review case studies of successful projects and clients that are utilizing these methods.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Users who want to coordinate their BIM models with their specifications, architects and specifiers who would like to see a better workflow, and IT professionals who are interested in seeing how to allow outside consultants to interact with their BIM model and specifications
