This class will highlight the use of Autodesk Quantity Takeoff software to streamline the preconstruction process for creating cost estimates based on building information models from multiple sources. We will use a recent case study to show off the ability of Quantity Takeoff to maximize the translation of information from the intelligent models into the contractor's estimate. The presentation will highlight the workflow changes inherent when moving from traditional 2D drawings, binders, and spreadsheets to a dynamic, integrated 5D model. This process enables efficient identification and resolution of potential issues. You will learn how to visually communicate the various cost impacts on the estimate to the building owner, designers, and other project stakeholders during and beyond the preconstruction phase. Another Quantity Takeoff benefit is early collaboration between architect and contractor that leads to greater efficiency and reduced risk for owners during construction, at project turnover, and throughout the life of the building.
Owners, architects, and contractors who are interested in or who are using Autodesk Quantity Takeoff
As a Precon Manager for Kitchell, Julie brings the technology dynamic to estimating by providing expertise with Autodesk Quantity Take off. This allows everyone on the team to see the big picture. She holds a B.S. degree in Construction Management from Arizona State University. She frequently is a guest lecturer for ASU Del Web School of Construction. Julie has 12 years of experience in the construction industry jumping from the job site to the office environment all the while pushing for unique solutions to everyday problems. When she is not presenting to clients and owners or teaching / training her comrades on best practices and process you can find her buying a new pair of shoes.
This class demonstrates how to use Autodesk Quantity Takeoff software to estimate a project during early design. You will learn how to take advantage of intelligent model-linked workflows from Autodesk Revit software and how to perform estimate updates as the project design progresses.
