This class will present the automated process used to perform structural assessments for water infrastructure projects. Historically, manned inspection was the means for data collection; for example, rappelling down a dam taking photos, notes, and sketches. In remote assessment process, high-definition images are collected with small drones combined with terrestrial LIDAR (light detection and ranging) scanning. Drones offer an ideal solution because often these facilities (such as dams) are isolated but have aerial visibility. The reality capture of the structure-instead of individual images-provides a useful tool for assessment. The collected data can be transformed into 3D models utilizing AutoCAD Civil 3D software or Revit software-models which are also shareable with the remote team on the BIM 360 platform. The data can be used to monitor structure performance by taking several surveys over time. Use of a systematic approach for the survey improves the delivery quality and schedule. This tool empowers stakeholders to make informed decisions on critical structures.
Any stakeholder interested to implement new technology into condition assessment of critical infrastructures

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.
Collaboration is the key to project success. Waste and inefficiency is expected in the transition of information from design team to trade partners. In this class, we'll share our experience of moving the fabrication drawings left into the design phase using a unified workflow on a traditional design-build project. With this workflow, we minimize the waste in transition and create a more efficient and leaner process. We'll identify the advantages of a unified workflow in the design phase and how it benefits the project team and the owner. We'll also review the process and software used to achieve this collaboration-we used Collaboration for Revit cloud service and BIM 360 Team software as the collaboration platform for the project, in conjunction with BIM 360 Glue software for coordination and design review during the construction document phase. We'll share our feedback and lessons learned, along with any tips and work-arounds to help with the use of Collaboration for Revit and BIM 360 Team and Fusion Team (formerly A360 Team) for interdisciplinary collaboration.
In this hands-on lab, we'll walk you through a concrete project workflow using GRAITEC Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers for Revit and a connected structural BIM workflow to take advantage of automation offered by BIM. You'll use Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers for Revit to automatically generate code-checked, 3D rebar cages for columns, beams, and footings of your Revit project, applying the ACI codes. You'll explore the achieved results and how you can manipulate them to a variety of situations to suit your specific or regional needs. You'll use Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers to generate engineering-approved design reports, automatically produce and fine-tune detailed drawing views, and complete bar schedules-all from Revit software. Finally, you'll create sheets and finish off the detail using some tools from the GRAITEC PowerPack for Revit, and you'll publish the documentation in BIM 360 Docs software to manage revision control.

Construction has a lot of moving parts, both figuratively and literally. Having all your project data in one place can minimize risk and reduce errors, as well as project time. We'll examine benefits of the BIM 360 ecosystem and how they could help with your architecture, engineering, and construction workflow, including keeping up to date on the design; detecting clashes before they're built; providing one location for all project documentation; managing project quality; doing project layout from an iPad; and offering simple and effective punch lists for contractors. In this session, we'll see how the available tools in the BIM 360 ecosystem can enhance your workflow-regardless of the design tools you use.
In this interactive lab, we'll learn how to navigate BIM 360 software and become Collaboration for Revit experts. We'll learn how to create collaborative projects, how to invite project contributors, and how to navigate the model in the cloud. Once we create the model, we'll learn how to publish the model for Live Reviews. We'll also review the cloud and mobile capabilities that BIM 360 Team software provides for expanded engagement from all users. We'll also review unique Collaboration for Revit features such as the Communicator, and we'll practice communicating with the project team within Revit software. In addition, we'll review how to effectively manage project contributors versus team members. Finally, we'll review how to troubleshoot with cloud Revit files by reviewing Journal Files. At the end of the class, you will be the new Collaboration for Revit and BIM 360 expert. You will be able to host Revit models to the cloud for projects, communicate with the project team effectively, and invite the team to your projects.

They'll each share their experience and offer insights into the development process and business opportunities. (Joint AU/Forge DevCon class).
The global architecture, engineering, and construction industry could benefit from better adherence to standards. Many data standards exist, but few succeed. Who mandates the standard? Owner? Architect? Government? Representatives from ConstructionProgress.org and Construction Open Standards Alliance (COSA.build) will kick off this roundtable discussion with a brief overview of the current Building Information Modeling (BIM) and construction data standards available today (in the United States and abroad). After defining the available data standards, the group will debate the relative adoption rates of these standards in the real world. The intended outcome is not to solve the technology barrier. Instead, it is to overcome the people and process barriers to digital collaboration. This roundtable debate will produce key opportunities to impact digital-standards adoption at the individual or company level.
