Description

Description

Model-based quantification has long been one of the promising applications of Building Information Modeling (BIM). As many in the industry have, Holder Construction has found ways to pull quantities from models to drive project estimation. In this presentation, we will share some of our tools and processes. Additionally, we will discuss many model-based quantification tools currently available, and why there continues to be a need for better tools built for preconstruction and estimating professionals. This session features Revit, BIM 360 Glue, and Navisworks Manage. AIA Approved
