Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Realise the benefits of integrating cloud-based collaboration data exchange tools with construction site processes in the UK
  • Upskill design consultants and subcontractors to fulfil on-site construction requirements
  • Integrate workflows between main contractor and geographically dispersed office-based and site-based stakeholder teams
  • Appraise the benefits of real-life integration of laser scanning and on-site verification techniques on a construction site

Description

Description

This class will be delivered by Kier Construction, a UK-based, industry-leading construction company, supported by Topcon and Autodesk. Kier will describe how they have applied Autodesk BIM 360 tools in collaboration with 3D laser scanners and total stations into their workflows on a complex construction project undertaken in the UK. Kier will demonstrate the key benefits of collaborative working, effective supply chain engagement, and adoption of technology on construction sites to realise and exceed client expectations. Using office-based software such as Navisworks, Revit, and ReCap, we will cover how using a variety of mass data capture techniques to gather as-built documentation combined with integrated on-site verification and management has improved efficiencies and reduced errors on construction sites. Kier will appraise the impact of using innovative new workflows to overcome interoperability challenges between several types of BIM authoring software.
