Description

Description

Capitalizing on Building Information Modeling (BIM) for new buildings is easy—you get to start with a fresh, clean file, and you can lay out everything you need precisely where it is supposed to be. But what if you’re doing an addition, a renovation, or a historic preservation? Most of what is important to a structural engineer is probably hidden behind an existing facade or finish. And yet, the model must go on. Fortunately, you're not alone! Join this roundtable to share your experience with these challenges, and see how your peers have dealt with the same issues. This session features Revit Structure.
