When a progressive health-care client challenged an integrated project delivery team to look for opportunities to enhance collaboration and meet stringent deadlines on a new hospital project in California, the team started investigating several options to enhance coordination among the different teams' model files. After reviewing the available alternatives, and after careful consideration, the team finally selected Collaboration for Revit cloud service. Collaboration for Revit exceeded the expectations of the team members who were not only co-located at a trailer, but were also dispersed in several offices-including overseas. The team was able to work efficiently without restrictions on firewalls, which also enabled for unique workflows between the design and construction teams. In this class, we'll go over this success story while reviewing the key features of Collaboration for Revit, the selection process, setup, tips/tricks, and known limitations. Additionally, we'll look at how BIM 360 software and Collaboration for Revit were used to enhance change management.
This class will showcase the Piedmont Atlanta Hospital Marcus Tower expansion and the all-in virtual design involvement on this project. We'll explain how to utilize models and BIM Team/C4R for Revit's cloud-based products and services for multiple aspects of the project, including the involvement in preconstruction for marketing, estimating, and self-perform opportunities; the integration of drone flights and parametric, in-house crane models for site logistics and safety planning; virtual reality for headwall mock-ups; and structural review. We'll complete the discussion with lessons learned for workflow, full-team integration, and training for the all-in approach.
Following a 12-year planning period, HOK was commissioned with the design of the Salt Lake City International Airport in Utah, considered one of the largest aviation projects under construction in the United States. In 2017, the airport launched a new 740,000-square-foot concourse expansion to the ongoing project, bringing the total area to 2.3 million square feet, with a total construction cost to $2.8 billion. This provided HOK with the opportunity to realign its BIM Execution Plan with a brand-new set of design technologies supporting big data, including A360 Collaboration for Revit cloud service, FormIt 360 software, Dynamo Studio software, Revizto, and Enscape. Learn how HOK re-evaluated, strategized, and adopted new technologies to enhance the collaborative design process; and hear what hurdles and opportunities appear when the cloud is pushed to the limits by projects of colossal dimensions.
Are you considering a change? Is it time to make a move? Do you have the attitude necessary to use Revit Architecture software? Changes in staff and the way we set about doing our designs may need to be reconsidered. We'll look at many of these issues with the aim of easing your transition. If you already know how objects work in AutoCAD Architecture software and you know how a building is put together, then you're more than halfway home. Revit software will help you continue on your Building Information Modeling (BIM) journey and set yourself up for postdesign use. Don't merely create drawings with your CAD package-create entire building designs.
Whether you are looking for a BIM Manager or want a job as a BIM Manager, but you have no idea where to start - This class is for you.

This roll is often called upon to provide tips, tricks, technologies, tools, and strategies to better manage the company's BIM environment. A BIM Manager needs to have the ability to tackle problem identification, problem solving, user motivation, senior management support, budgeting, training program justification, objection handling and more. I hope that this class will give you a few insights and resources to help you hire the BIM Manager you need or give you the resources to be the best BIM Manager possible.
In the design world, it's not uncommon that key project data is stored in application silos and requires a great deal of manual coordination. Autodesk has taken the first steps for architecture, engineering, and construction projects to make data available to multiple applications at once-by introducing a connected workflow that shares data from schematic diagrams with a Revit project. The Revit P&ID Modeler breaks silos down by letting the user begin with P&ID schematics in AutoCAD Plant 3D software to create intelligent, data-rich diagrams. The schematic data is hosted in the A360 cloud-computing platform cloud and is referenced by Revit project models. The 3D model consisting of elements such as piping, equipment, and accessories is then developed using information defined in the schematic, such as pipe size, pipe type, valve type, and equipment IDs. As the model is developed and the schematic iterated, the user receives feedback to help ensure consistency and that design intent is maintained. Join us to see the next evolution of Autodesk design tools.
This class will dig into Revit software with tips and tricks from the low-hanging fruit (symbols, text, and standards) and things to consider (metric, Imperial or soft metric, geographies, and so on). We'll look at using note block content for abbreviation lists and schedules, processing diagrams using custom families, and keynoting. We'll cover assemblies codes, what view templates are and how to use them effectively for consistency from templates forward, sample practices for view naming and browser management in anticipation of exports, and ways of managing work sets in local and linked files to help speed up your system by simply organizing data. We'll also look at how work sets track through links, schema for management, best practices on file sizes, and how to push those limits and possibly a few Dynamo Scripts to assist in management and setups of projects.
We all have great Building Information Modeling (BIM) standards we've developed and nurtured for years, but we also realize that technology can only take us so far.

Prefabrication and automation in offsite construction requires building models to be rich in data. The generation of construction drawings, creation of a bill of materials and the application of fabricated information is required in the model. In wood construction for example, it requires modeling of accurate processing (precutting) and assembly of prefabricated items including tooling (e.g. nailing and milling operations). All this, including derived data in the form of CNC files, shop drawings, etc., needs to be accessible by all stakeholders - the builders, prefabricators and project managers. By combining Autodesk products and APIs, hsbcad has developed improved workflows to create and modify rich model content. Revit content is able to enrich cloud based BIM that drives CNC equipment and improves on site processes. This leads to increased efficiency and cost control for the complete construction process.Joint AU/Forge DevCon class
This class will take a case-study approach to demonstrate a real-life example of harnessing BIM data throughout the facility management lifecycle of a corporate office. IBI Group has developed a sound workflow to harness modeled data sourced in either Revit or Civil 3D within a custom-built asset management solution. The service provided includes "gluing" asset-specific data together in a virtual environment including the BIM representation and offering the output as a managed solution for our clients / stakeholders. This process involves strong definition of a project's BIM goal, stated BIM Uses to achieve the goal, and diligent Project BIM Leadership to accomplish the mission. The solution provides web-based, or mobile access to asset information coupled with the ability to virtually interact with the asset as well as achieve real-world visual information, financial data, warranty timelines, and other pertinent information. All this enhances the ability to plan OPEX / CAPEX.
