Description

Description

This class will focus on one of the major issues that the Building Information Modeling (BIM) / virtual design and construction industry faces today: the use of the 3D models in the field. Attendees will learn the process of how to create a field-ready model that would give them the ability to extract information directly from the model to be used in the field, contrary to a designer’s model, whose information if tailored to the production of construction documents drawings. In addition, the class will cover how to use software like Point Layout software to pre-program points, along with introductions to instruments like the TopCon PS Series and the BIM 360 Layout app. We will show examples of use from the All Aboard Florida project, located in Miami, Florida, showing point layouts with embeds, sleeves, and column layouts that have provided accurate layout information, as-built information, and QA/AC to the field to maintain a high-quality of work. This session features Revit and Point Layout. AIA Approved

Mercedes Daren

Daren Mercedes started to work with Building Information Modeling (BIM) 3 years ago as a BIM manager for an electrical subcontractor on the Brickell City Center project in Miami, Florida. After working there, Mercedes moved to Suffolk Construction to become their BIM / virtual design and construction coordinator for All Aboard Florida’s Miami Central Station. Mercedes also received the user certification for Revit software and Navisworks software from Autodesk, Inc., and has used almost every software Autodesk has offered—from AutoCAD software to BIM 360 Glue software and BIM 360 Field software. His love for computers gives him the desire to improve, advance, or change the standard of how we do things, and the software systems provided by Autodesk give him the medium and the ability to do so.
