Description

Description

This virtual class provides real-world examples of how residential/multifamily structural engineers and trades are using Building Information Modeling (BIM) for wood-framed projects. Integrated project delivery (IPD) processes and workflows have been developed to streamline design and construction. This technology is based on AutoCAD® Architecture and Autodesk® Revit® software, which are integrated via model map technology. The model map files can be exported to truss and wall component manufacturers to eliminate the interpretive redraw process. Structural engineers can now visualize, design, and draft in 3D, while collaborating with teams of suppliers and trades. Material lists can be exported for quantified value engineering. BIM based off-site construction techniques that are linked to the models can be used to accelerate project schedules. Using BIM and IPD at the design stage provides valuable data and critical path information, offering a win-win scenario for the owner as well as all participants.

Brad Blissit

Bradford Blissit is the Founder and President of Integrated Structural Concepts (ISC) based in Phoenix, AZ. ISC combines structural engineering with BIM and IPD to provide an integrated design-build solution for the multifamily wood frame market. With the early adoption of BIM, ISC continues to integrate technology with real world construction techniques, such as post tension foundation design, wall panel detailing, truss design and turn-key foundation and framing installation. His background in general contracting/homebuilding and long career in the multifamily component manufacturing industry provided a unique perspective on how wood frame projects are traditionally designed and constructed. Mr. Blissit’s vision for the multifamily industry is to create dynamic teams that use BIM to streamline the design and construction process, while eliminating risks for owners.
