Description

Description

While the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) has grown massively in recent years, too frequently it appears to start from the ground up with the geology and subsurface being ignored. This is a significant omission, as the whole premise of BIM is to reduce costs by reducing risk at the early design stage and throughout the lifetime of the project. This class will look at how the core BIM principles of data sharing, collaboration, and process can be used and applied to the geotechnical process, illustrated with the case study: Silvertown Road Tunnel. It will highlight the use of tools like AutoCAD Civil 3D software and InfraWorks software, together with HoleBASE SI, to enable the combination of information from previous projects together with a wide range of other data sources, maps, drawings, and models. This leads to a better understanding of the site and improved processes to model and visualize geology and subsurface data with the wider team, which will ultimately help to reduce risk and save money. This session features AutoCAD Civil 3D and InfraWorks 360. AIA Approved

Gary Morin

Gary Morin originally trained as a civil engineer and has over 30 years of experience working in the production and support of a range of geographic information systems and CAD software systems. He is now the technical director of Keynetix, which he co-founded in 2000 to specialize in geotechnical data management software. He heads up the geotechnical Building Information Modeling (BIM) development, and is responsible for the design and support services for a range of products designed to manage geotechnical data in the BIM process, including the HoleBASE SI extension, the Geotechnical Module from Autodesk, Inc., and the advance HoleBASE SI extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D software. In recent years Morin has been at the forefront of geotechnical BIM and how it can change working practices to enable a better understanding and integration of geotechnical data into the wider construction process
