Tired of waiting for the architect or the structural engineer to send you the last updated model so you can continue your work? The waiting time is over-and it's called Collaboration for Revit cloud service. This session will demonstrate how architects, engineers, and contractors have been using the cloud to communicate and collaborate in designing and currently building Norway's biggest shopping center. Using collaboration for Revit software, BIM 360 Team software, and the Forge platform to view 3D models, it has been possible to identify and solve problems more quickly than in a traditional design process. Workflows, tips, and tricks will be essential in this lecture.
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 for Revit cloud service has fundamentally changed the way the architecture, engineering, and construction industry works on complex projects that require collaborative workflows. This class will focus on explaining the concept of Collaboration for Revit. We'll demonstrate the fundamentals of using collaborative workflows using Collaboration for Revit, and illustrate how multiple stakeholders can work on the same model in the cloud. My co-speaker-the national Building Information Modeling (BIM) manager of a large architectural firm-will explain how their company used Collaboration for Revit to deliver complex projects on time and on budget using real collaboration on the firm's Revit models.
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.

This class will focus on best practices for delivering complex healthcare projects and showcase BIM360 Team and Collaboration for Revit as the main tools for connecting the entire Project Team.
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.
The demanding pace in the design industry for faster collaboration with outside consultants, and the need to provide multiple resources from different office locations, is making it necessary to find quicker and more-efficient solutions to resolve those demands. With 180 Collaboration for Revit licenses in place, McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture has taken its design workflow to a different level. Hear about the company's workflow from the initial Building Information Modeling (BIM) kick-off meeting, to the daily unexpected glitches with Collaboration for Revit-and what is required on each of the firm's projects.
Work sharing is commonly known by Revit users and is critical when it comes to collaborative design. Obviously, with collaboration comes communication. The more dispersed teams are, the more important efficient communication becomes. In this session, we'll discuss how the next-gen Revit work sharing can help teams to understand design changes, no matter where team members are. We'll not only look at how designers update their team members about changes, but also how these changes are communicated to external stakeholders in a controlled way and how we can visualize these design changes in 3D. Finally, we'll explain how you can collect feedback from non-Revit users, and how you can create deliverables using Dynamo software. The core of this process is BIM 360 software, which we'll also briefly discuss.
