In this class, we will dive into the concepts and practices we used to bring the most to the deliverable for the owner through use of Autodesk® Navisworks® Manage, Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, AutoCAD® MEP, AutoCAD®, and Autodesk® Inventor® software. We will show you how to work towards bringing only value-added work to a project by eliminating non-value-adding steps while also working towards better quality assurance and quality control by modularizing the construction process where it has proven possible through studies using the design suite.

Since joining the company in 2008, he has been instrumental in the Whiting-Turner Building Information Modeling efforts. He trains staff across the country on emerging technologies, maintains a company newsletter highlighting technology trends, and delivers presentations for project teams, architects and engineers throughout the country. Reed joined Whiting-Turner after five years as an architect, where he employed virtual design on highly themed entertainment construction projects. Reed graduated from the University of Florida with a B.D. in Architecture, and has extensive experience working with information models to coordinate complex construction projects. With over a decade of experience working in the AEC industry, Reed understands the value BIM can bring to the industry, and champions the use of it on every project.
As Project Integrator on the B2 Modular Housing Project at Atlantic Yards in Brooklyn, New York, SHoP Construction (SC) is currently implementing the Autodesk BIM 360 Glue™ cloud-based management solution to provide comprehensive collaboration across the project team and model supply chain. Starting in 2010 on the Barclays Center Arena in Brooklyn, NY, SHoP Construction prototyped a web-based portal that enabled project stakeholders to track the fabrication and installation progress of 12,000 uniquely sized weathered steel panels for the facade. The constantly updated SC 4D sequencing model evolved into a critical tool for the design-build team to understand the impact of production and schedule changes. This class will focus on how Autodesk BIM 360 services and web-based portals enable improved project visualization and information access for all project stakeholders. The class will demonstrate how to move from linear workflows to real-time collaboration with hyperlinks to access live data. We will highlight how the project team is using Autodesk BIM 360 to streamline the team’s transition from design development through to the factory production phase of the work for the largest prefab modular building in the world
Autodesk BIM 360 is a data-centric, cloud-based BIM management solution that provides easy, ubiquitous access to the project model, data, and collaborative workflows, regardless of authoring tools. Based on the Horizontal Glue™ technology that is currently used by leading construction, owner, and design firms, the class will focus on improved day-to-day processes for model coordination and collaboration across the entire project team. Join our gurus as they take us through Autodesk BIM 360 services and demonstrate multidiscipline model aggregation, clash management, and collaboration in the cloud.
