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.

Last year, our team undertook the task of capturing and generating the existing condition of a building in downtown Toronto, Canada. This project was a commercial building that included a parkade, mechanical spaces, office areas, and retail space. It required over 1,100 scans, or 7 trillion points of data, to capture all spaces needed for redesign and as-built modeling. This Revit project required LOD 200 modeling process for architecture, structure, mechanical, electrical, and fire protection. Using Revit software, ReCap software, and Collaboration for Revit cloud service we were able to move from raw scan data to a Revit model efficiently. Other challenges were management of large data sets and collaboration between team members in different geographical locations. We'll show you how we planned and executed this project, and let you know what lessons we learned.
Revit project setup is often undervalued and overlooked. Starting the life of your project off on the right foot is the most important step. So, what are all the steps that we can take to maximize our model's potential? Let's discuss all the ways to increase productivity through effective Building Information Modeling (BIM) management.
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.
Brown University School of Engineering is a true IPD (integrated project delivery) project in the United States. BuroHappold Engineering and KieranTimberlake, along with Shawmut Design and Construction and their trade partners, created a plan that would involve complete live collaboration between all parties utilizing Collaboration for Revit cloud service. This involved all parties working in a live model environment while developing their design. Trade partners would be simultaneously coordinating all building systems in preparation for construction. Developing a seamless transition from design to construction model was an opportunity. The team was able to design in Revit software while creating content that was ready for fabrication. The process continued through construction using BIM 360 Glue software for final conflict resolution and then onto BIM Field 360 software, ensuring coordinated installation of all services. You will learn best practices and optimum setup enabling smooth movement of data from team to team and platform to platform for all project scales.
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.
