This class will demonstrate the workflow between Revit software, Navisworks software, and Primavera software, referring to a project we delivered (the LNG tank located in Gladstone, Australia). In successfully delivering our work, we developed a structural model with scheduled 3D reinforcement utilizing the rebar extension tools and developing adaptive component families to represent as post tension. We will go through the tips and tricks that the company has picked up along the way, and explain further the reason why we used adaptive components. Furthermore, you will see that within Navisworks software we used the simulate functionality of the product to integrate the client’s native construction program utilizing certain rules and tricks. Once the Building Information Modeling (BIM) was developed, we validated the design and constructability utilizing 3D, 4D, and 5D workflows.

Key Learnings

  • Discuss client requirements
  • Learn how to measure BIM success
  • Discover best practices using Reo Tools
