Black & Veatch are teamed up with HDR on the design of a large wastewater treatment facility project in the Kansas City area. Combining the right processes with Autodesk technology is delivering unprecedented collaboration, despite each of the design teams having resources scattered around the world. This session will showcase how the project team has used Collaboration for Revit cloud service and BIM 360 Team and Fusion Team (formerly A360 Team), as well as highlight some of the workflows used to promote efficiency in production.
- Learn about implementing a substantial reduction in effort to coordinate large projects using Collaboration for Revit
- Discover work processes that pair well with Collaboration for Revit to enhance efficiency
- Understand how geographically disparate teams can work well together in a common environment
- Learn how to interpret and address perceived or actual challenges related to high-trust collaborative environments
