    Using project examples, this class will address the use of multiple software applications as a workflow, dealing with multiple clients and users—all of whom are collaborating and coordinating on large-scale buildings in one complex. The class will cover how we implemented Building Information Modeling (BIM) from 3D through 6D for design, coordination, simulation, estimating, and facilities management. We will discuss techniques used by the team to streamline the design process, program settings we used to facilitate BIM use in the construction phase, 4D simulations, visualization of building interfaces, BIM-integrated estimating processes and procedures, and BIM-integrated facilities management.

    Key Learnings

    • Describe best practices and workflow to manage and coordinate a large-scale BIM project involving multiple teams
    • Design to benefit estimating, construction, and facilities management
    • For building owners, explain what BIM can do to enable them to better design, construct, and operate buildings
    • For facilities managers, describe how BIM can interface and integrate with computerized maintenance management systems
