Follow us on our journey as we work toward building an owner’s vision into one of the most inventive aquariums in the country. We will show how BIM engineers can successfully work with owners, architects, general contractors, and subcontractors during the preconstruction phase of any project in order to coordinate scheduling and procurement, reduce requests for information, improve construction sequencing, and much more. This couldn’t be possible if BIM Engineers didn't use multiple Autodesk, Inc., products, and we will demonstrate how these products’ interoperability enabled us to successfully coordinate with the entire Project Team from inception to completion. These products combined enabled us to create a construction model that was not only used for coordination of all trades, but was also used to generate constructability drawings for the field. Watch as we demonstrate how to successfully create these drawings, and we’ll also show how a unique collaborative process and Autodesk products can improve any project’s return on investments.

Collaboration in construction is challenging. How can you organize the quality in data and geometry with all these different parties and models? Which software do you use to check your model: Navisworks or Solibri. An IFC workflow with Solibri provides you insights in the different clashes and the possibility to check in a rule based manner. But how do you create reports and collaborate with team members? Does Navisworks manage a more better workflow with more possibilities for everybody? With Navisworks you are free of file format. It is easy to append and update Revit, IFC, rcp or dwg files to a federated model in one single file. Checking model geometry, duplicates and data in a standardized way with Collaborea. It is the rulebased modelchecker for Naviswork. A report is no longer necessary because all the issues are visible and editable on a Cloud platform using Autodesk Forge. Checking and collaborating becomes easy and editing the models in an Autodesk workflow is simple.
PERI as supplier of the construction industry is faced with the challenges to meet the multitude of different requirements of our clients. Clients are traditional well-established construction companies , but also increasingly project managers, architects as well as building owners. The complexity of the projects to be delivered poses another challenge. These projects range from small single-family homes, big office buildings, through to complex high-rise buildings, sophisticated 3D freeform surfaces, infrastructureand industrial projects. <br/><br/>The core topic of this lecture will be how PERI meets these challenges, how it produces solutions, and, ultimately, how PERI provides its clients a broad range of services. Learn more on PERIÂ´s way of providing its clients with its best practice services, how PERI drives its strategy of process integration within its chain of suppliers, and how the BIM 360 Platform reinforces factors such as quality, time, safety, and costs on-site.
IQL will show how there are different ways of working/interacting with the built environment and explain the integrated project delivery: client, project manager, and main contractor being 1 team with the same goal approach. We'll explain how we developed a strategy, managed the design, and delivered from concept design to project handover using different digital technologies at different stages. This class will demonstrate how we've created a strategy and EIR for a project that will run for the next 8 years and which will attract future tenants. We’ll show this from a project management point of view: management of the design stakeholders, management of design, BIM for master planning, quantification, the use of BIM for visualisation/VR, and BIM as a product to attract tenants. From a construction management view, we'll demonstrate trade design coordination, supply chain management/education, BIM on-site, 4D sequencing and construction optimisation, and BIM use for tenant engagement.
Brown University School of Engineering is a true IPD (integrated project delivery) project in the United States. BuroHappold Engineering and KieranTimberlake, along with Shawmut Design and Construction and their trade partners, created a plan that would involve complete live collaboration between all parties utilizing Collaboration for Revit cloud service. This involved all parties working in a live model environment while developing their design. Trade partners would be simultaneously coordinating all building systems in preparation for construction. Developing a seamless transition from design to construction model was an opportunity. The team was able to design in Revit software while creating content that was ready for fabrication. The process continued through construction using BIM 360 Glue software for final conflict resolution and then onto BIM Field 360 software, ensuring coordinated installation of all services. You will learn best practices and optimum setup enabling smooth movement of data from team to team and platform to platform for all project scales.
University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Medical Center has been on a path to designing buildings via integrated project delivery-with much success. But what happens once the model is designed, constructed, and delivered? Please join us in a review of the road that has led to our subject case study: Take a look at the real-time development of the 125,000-square-foot, 7-story Precision Cancer Medicine Building as it has been Revit software designed, Building Information Modeling (BIM) specified, and Maximo integrated in order to take advantage of the lifecycle potentials thus offered. Industry tools like BIM 360 Glue software, BIM 360 Field software, Revit software, Maximo, BIM Assure, Service Now, Easy Max, Archibus, and other software support platforms all lend themselves to innovative lifecycle operations solutions at the hands of our in-house team and external partners so absolutely critical to our success.
Collaboration is the key to project success. Waste and inefficiency is expected in the transition of information from design team to trade partners. In this class, we'll share our experience of moving the fabrication drawings left into the design phase using a unified workflow on a traditional design-build project. With this workflow, we minimize the waste in transition and create a more efficient and leaner process. We'll identify the advantages of a unified workflow in the design phase and how it benefits the project team and the owner. We'll also review the process and software used to achieve this collaboration-we used Collaboration for Revit cloud service and BIM 360 Team software as the collaboration platform for the project, in conjunction with BIM 360 Glue software for coordination and design review during the construction document phase. We'll share our feedback and lessons learned, along with any tips and work-arounds to help with the use of Collaboration for Revit and BIM 360 Team and Fusion Team (formerly A360 Team) for interdisciplinary collaboration.
By now you've probably heard about the latest trend to take technology by storm: augmented reality (AR). And from what you've read in tech magazines or seen on YouTube, you probably geek out about it like the rest of us. Yeah, virtual reality (VR), AR, and mixed reality (whatever that means) sound and look really cool, like everything we've seen in sci-fi movies is becoming REAL reality. We're approaching the point where we've accepted this idea, but how can we use the technology in a practical sense and actually get some value from these expensive headsets, other than just explaining to owners that it's "super cool?" That is what this session will be all about. We're going to demonstrate the ways and methods that you can use your design models (Revit software), use real information that is updated through BIM 360 software, and take them into an AR or VR environment (using the Stingray gaming engine) and actually view the stuff that matters in the field.
This class will walk through an early construction case study of a boutique dual-branded hotel in midtown Atlanta that began in January 2017. Beginning with establishing existing conditions and site logistics, working through MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) coordination and structure build up, this class will cover a wide variety of construction technology integration. Fully designed in Revit software, this project team embraced using the BIM 360 platform-including BIM 360 Docs software, BIM 360 Glue software, BIM 360 Field software, and BIM 360 Team software-to manage documentation and project coordination between the design team, general contractor, and trade contractors. We'll also explore the benefits and challenges of reality capture and photogrammetry in an urban environment using laser scanning and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flights in conjunction with the ReCap Pro software.
This session examines 2 recent advances in BIM in the field of geotechnics. The first case study relates to the sharing of site-generated data, that is gathered electronically on-site, processed, and then uploaded to the BIM model, all automatically. In this way the stakeholders are seeing the object attributes updated in the integrated model in real time as the work is done. The advantages of this process include the obvious savings in time and effort, avoiding mistakes, self-certification, and the manifest openness that supports collaboration.
Many of our BIM Execution Plans (BEPs) are full of software requirements, file type requirements, and upload requirements. By the time it's all on paper, you have a document full of requirements and no actions. In this session, we'll present strategies and lessons learned in creating a BEP that is actionable and still holds everybody accountable to the guidelines needed to create a successful coordination phase of construction. Go beyond a glorified CAD management plan and clash assignments to create shared success for all project stakeholders.
Construction has a lot of moving parts, both figuratively and literally. Having all your project data in one place can minimize risk and reduce errors, as well as project time. We'll examine benefits of the BIM 360 ecosystem and how they could help with your architecture, engineering, and construction workflow, including keeping up to date on the design; detecting clashes before they're built; providing one location for all project documentation; managing project quality; doing project layout from an iPad; and offering simple and effective punch lists for contractors. In this session, we'll see how the available tools in the BIM 360 ecosystem can enhance your workflow-regardless of the design tools you use.
Concluding the class presented at Autodesk University 2015, Elliott Crossley returns to discuss the construction phase of a £330 million project in the UK. This class reveals the strategy and workflows involved in integrating fabrication information back into the Building Information Model, divulging the toolbox of a multidisciplinary design team at BDP from inception to completion, challenging current technology throughout, to deliver an Asset Information Model suitable for use in building operation.
