Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Identify strategies to avoid material waste and access labor costs
  • Discover the value of precision-cutting automation
  • Discover new methods to utilize programs such as CAD, Revit, and so on in order to maximize profit
  • Learn how to extract more information out of the model for fabrication

Description

Description

This class will showcase studies of innovative workflow practices that will shave time off of labor and result in up to 25% savings on material. We will show workflows with material tracking using level of development (LOD) 400 practices. We will address material procurement, handling, and shipping techniques. We will demonstrate how we train and how to implement precision cutting automation with material optimization workflows. Attendees will encounter methods of using CAD, Revit software, Navisworks software, and Total Station software in order to achieve these cost reductions. This session features AutoCAD MEP and Revit MEP. AIA Approved

Stephan Schnell

Stephan Schnell started his career in mechanical and plumbing contracting in 1999. As a journeyman and foreman, he has worked on biopharmaceutical buildings, public school/universities, office buildings, commercial buildings, healthcare buildings (OSHPD 1), and advanced-technology (data centers) industries. He has directed the MEPF (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire) Building Information Modeling (BIM) coordination effort for multiple construction projects, and he coordinated the construction process from the conceptual development stage through final construction. Since 2007, he has been an instructor of drafting, CAD-MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing), Revit software, BIM, and robotic total station at local 467. This summer he will teach Utilizing Job-Site Technology at the United Association (UA) Instructor Training Program. He is an expert in lean construction methods, prefabrication, scheduling, 3D CAD/BIM, robotic total station, and just-in-time (JIT) delivery.

Eric Posey

Eric Posey has been working in the plumbing and pipe fitting industry for 14+ years. Beginning as an apprentice in 2002, he began working in the pipe trades as a trainee, apprentice, and journeyman. In 2010, he then became a foreman on the 1/2-billion dollar Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis, IN. After substantial completion of that project he became the lead BIM/VDC detailer at Greiner Brothers Inc. in Indianapolis, IN where he and his team have completed numerous successful BIM projects. Eric is also a part-time Revit instructor for the United Association as well as UA Local 440 in Indianapolis, IN.
