Description

Description

This session will cover how SSOE Group has changed its delivery process on retrofit projects to reduce waste in the engineering and construction process as a standard of care for its clients. The key point of this entire process is reliance on the laser scan and all team members working with the data in ReCap software, Navisworks software, and the modeling platform (Revit software, AutoCAD Plant 3D software, AutoCAD Civil 3D software, or AutoCAD software). We will highlight practical examples on how to utilize laser scans as the sole source of truth and reference into our design software. Additionally we will review our unique process in which we remove all demolition objects from the scan model to coordinate with the proposed scope of work. Project examples will demonstrate how SSOE has been able to competitively bid projects while still maintaining a healthy profit margin. This session features ReCap 360, Navisworks Manage, and Revit.

Mark LaBell Jr

Mark LaBell has a passion and unparalleled dedication for the practice of virtual design and construction methods in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry. He has served as a user and customization expert in 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) / CAD software for over 15 years, and he provides support and training for users to educate them on how to maintain a sound and practical user environment. Always looking for the next best thing—whether process improvement, software, or hardware when it comes to practical design and user experience—LaBell has learned that there is never a “one size fits all” approach, no matter what the client requirements dictate. He has spearheaded and hosted SSOE Group’s annual hackathon, which is a business planning process that enables all non-principal-level staff to participate in business planning and new business opportunities. Over the past 18 months, LaBell has presented at numerous conferences, including Autodesk University, BIMForum, SPAR International, PSMJ AEC Thrive Summit, BIM Integration Congress, and Midwest University.
