Contract schedules that are proposed during preconstruction can define the success or failure of project. Too often they are based upon a scheduler's gut check. Building Information Modeling (BIM), along with an integrated Lean workflow, is enabling schedulers to better predict flaws within the schedule and communicate expectations during construction. Currently, Autodesk and DPR Construction have teamed up to create an integration between Autodesk® Navisworks® software and the Last Planner® software, Ourplan, to visually track schedule commitments through the model on a three-week look-ahead. This integration enables DPR to track subcontractor tasks through the model while obtaining more validated input by visually communicating the scope of work expected and indicating potential roadblocks. We will present the current workflows while also proposing future needs for development to use quantity data to derive production rates for future projects, thus helping to take the guesswork out of critical preconstruction scheduling.
Owners, contractors, and subcontractors who are interested in obtaining more value from BIM

Nathan has developed a passion for identifying new ways of utilizing BIM, direct digital exchange, and model to field technology to create a leaner workflow from design through construction.
Contemporary shifts in technology and environmental concerns are changing the circumstances of building performance. Integrated teams that employ interdisciplinary design and construction personnel are responding to this changed set of conditions. The foundation of interdisciplinary architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) practices begins with the education of the next generation of AEC practitioners. In this class, we will discuss how students engaged in an iterative design and learning process build knowledge and communication skills toward an integrated design-build studio. This integrated design-build studio uses a series of assignments housed in dedicated design labs where students solve realistic design problems. Faculty-implemented Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies and established ecological accounting methods increase interaction and innovation in the interdisciplinary design-build studio.
As a part of the Infrastructure Design Suite PowerTrack, this class will highlight detailed design workflows in AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software, using additional tools in Autodesk® Navisworks® Manage, Autodesk® Storm and Sanitary Analysis, and Autodesk® Revit® Structure software. The class will examine a bridge and drainage system for a roadway, including layout, analysis, and clash detection. Autodesk® Vault Collaboration AEC software and the Autodesk 360 cloud computing platform will be used throughout the process for collaboration, analysis, and more.
More than simply a technical paradigm, cloud computing offers fundamentally new directions for connecting people, projects, and information. Coupled with Building Information Modeling (BIM) data, cloud-based project information management has the potential to broadly affect both ad hoc and contractually-defined project communications, workflows, and deliverables. This class discusses advances in cloud-based project data management and collaboration with a focus on the impact on project organization, data organization, and contracting. It will offer examples of cloud-based project information management technologies, as well as case studies of the use of these systems to demonstrate the affect of BIM-centric cloud computing on project delivery. This class will discuss the use of online project collaboration to articulate the value this has on project deliveyr success.

The Autodesk® 2013 suites are here and the disciplines are working together more than ever. This class will walk you through the steps of sharing models from civil engineers all the way to contractors using Autodesk® Revit®, Autodesk® Navisworks®, and AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software while covering the latest interoperability changes. Featuring tried-and-true experience, this class will cover the topics you need to know for your office in-house workflow, as well as what needs to happen for other consultants on your team to ensure a smooth process. After all, it’s not all about you anymore.
This class will present a database-grounded solution for connecting all information that is accumulated in a building project and articulating it in manner that enables easy and effective use of the data. We will show you the processes and procedures that connect all of the disciplines (architectural, structural, MEP, medical equipment, furnishings, and civil engineering) into a single dataset that can be hosted on the web and made accessible to all parties. Through the use of dRofus, Autodesk® Navisworks®, and Autodesk® Revit®, we established a process that allowed the contractor, subcontractor, architect, engineers and owner to dynamically view, comment, and direct the design and construction decisions during the design phase rather than during the construction phase.
This class is designed to present the next level of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and big data for owner’s lifecycle operations. The presentation will introduce a truly cloud-based, 24x7 hosted, collaboration web service born from best practices in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry and focused on the owner’s lifecycle operations at an enterprise-level. The class will foster an understanding of the next generation of globally accessible, concurrent "big BIM data" and collaboratively flexible and infinitely scalable metadata schemas. The class will showcase past and present projects where this cloud-based collaboration has been used to illustrate how communication and problem-solving on complex projects can be improved for project responsiveness, quality control, access to the most up-to-date data, and overall project cost and schedule.
The inclusion of point cloud support inside Autodesk® Revit® software means that documenting existing facilities is now easier than ever…hypothetically. With the advent of facilities management software and operations and maintenance databases reaching out to Building Information Modeling (BIM) for visualization and representation, the workflow seems obvious. Follow us through a real example of taking a building with no drawings from laser scan data to intelligent model, then to a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) database, and finally to facilities management tools.
The country’s leading mechanical contractors were some of the earliest adopters of Building Information Modeling (BIM) due to the vast potential for off-site prefabrication. Nearly ten years after its first BIM project, J.C. Cannistraro is sharing some lessons learned from modeling, fabricating, and building some of the most high-profile hospital and biotech projects in the Northeast. Using primarily Autodesk® Navisworks® and Autodesk® Fabrication software, we will explain how we use collaborative thinking, Lean methodology, and BIM tools throughout the preconstruction and construction phases to maximize the efficiency of delivery and installation on every project.
Many builders who are implementing Building Information Modeling (BIM) are using Autodesk® Revit® and Autodesk® Navisworks® software for business development and preconstruction, but are missing out on the value of using the model in the field. In this class, you will learn about technical processes and workflows, lessons learned, and implementation strategies from builders who are on the forefront of using BIM to full advantage in the field. We will discuss field use of BIM, Revit, and Navisworks for visualization, file transfer, coordination and clash detection, 4D construction simulation and scheduling, quality control coordination drawings, laser scanning, and building layout. If you are interested in either using or understanding how builders are using BIM on a construction site, this practical class is for you.
Anybody who is serious about Building Information Modeling (BIM) knows there is more to BIM than the data stored in the model. The more involved the BIM implementation becomes, the more important it becomes to store information in an external database. Autodesk Navisworks software is primarily a collaboration tool and as such presents unique challenges and unique opportunities over authoring tools. Taking full advantage of a database can automate coordination tasks, improve communication, tighten collaboration, enhance 4D and 5D simulations and create a much more enhanced overall BIM experience. Passing data between applications is easy, but finding the proper strategy for implementation is critical for success. This class will outline several opportunities for connecting Navisworks to a database as well as identify the key elements of a successful implementation strategy.
Dentro del desarrollo de una obra de construcción, al momento de iniciarse la obra, la fase de programación y control de ésta se torna crítica. Las herramientas que ofrece BIM en este aspecto son poderosas y permiten a los diferentes stakeholders de un proyecto estar conectados y enterados de todo el proceso de desarrollo. Mediante el uso de Autodesk Navisworks y Autodesk Revit podemos tener un modelo unificado con el cual tenemos una visión completa del proyecto. Autodesk Navisworks permite generar secuencias constructivas por sí solo y también mediante la sincronización con software de programacion de proyectos como Primavera® y Microsoft Project. En esta clase veremos como interactuan estas aplicaciones, cómo preparamos los modelos y las programaciones, integrarlas en Autodesk Navisworks y generar una secuencia de construcción para finalizar con una animación de ésta, más orientada a la visualización y presentación.
