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.

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.
Autodesk Navisworks software isn't just for contractors. Architects are seeing the value of using Navisworks during design as a coordination tool. Get a firsthand look from an architect and Building Information Modeling (BIM) service provider on how to use Navisworks for phasing studies and learn the value of using Navisworks early in the design process for owners and architects. We will show a case study from Florida on how local governments used the design model for tenant phasing, and site logistics in design. We will describe how architects use clash detection for design coordination, discuss what not to model, and explain the difference between what is modeled in design versus construction for coordination. We will give best practices and tips and tricks on how to make Navisworks work for you.

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.
This class will provide an in-depth discussion of best practices for building a design model for use in both 2D construction documentation and 3D trade coordination. As more projects are designed in 3D from the beginning, architectural, structural, and other trade models can be used by MEP designers when laying out their systems. We will address the how and why of making a model for both documentation creation and 3D coordination in step-by-step descriptions of best practices based on real-world examples where this workflow has been successful. The class will also include a handout that describes the Building Information Modeling (BIM) coordination process and lists best practices for designers who are interested in providing coordination as a service to the construction team.

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 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.
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.
Traditionally, Autodesk Navisworks software has been used either for clash detection or for 4D simulations. Less common is the practice of combining both of the tools into one process to perform discrete event simulation, or more simply, 4D clash detection. Discrete event simulation is a lean practice which is commonly used in many industries, such as manufacturing, health care, and even capital investing, but is just beginning to gain foothold within the construction industry. This class will walk through what discrete event simulation is and describe its various applications within the construction industry. The class will present a case study of applying the process to a multiphased mechanical upgrade at the University of Virginia Old Jordan Hall.
In a fast-paced design-build environment, the ability to streamline and accelerate processes necessary for optimized project delivery is directly proportional to the ability to minimize information loss. Using real-life examples, we will demonstrate how complex projects and their demanding schedules be improved from the use of Autodesk Building Design Suite. The class will cover a Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow from the very beginning of the design and construction process. We will discuss how early decisions have a lasting impact on the building’s performance and lifecycle cost, explore the process of program development and client engagement using advanced visualization techniques, and finally, delve into the process of document production and coordination. This BIM-enabled workflow determines a team’s ability to collaborate and deliver a product that will exceed the client’s expectations.
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.
