This class is an overview of how A360 Team and Collaboration for Revit software are impacting the traditional project collaboration workflows and the overall project delivery. We will present our lessons learned after multiple iterative implementations on complex projects. We will explore the features of A360 Team and Collaboration for Revit software that enabled project teams to work much more efficiently in a more transparent environment. With new tools come new responsibilities. We will explore how to effectively implement the frequently evolving A360 cloud-based collaboration service platform to large project teams, often exceeding 150 project participants. We will focus on some of the ways our Team managed the impact of the new A360 Collaboration for Revit workflow while keeping the entire Project Team engaged in the process. This class will also showcase several additional workflow improvements and technologies used in conjunction with A360 Team and Collaboration for Revit software, aimed at streamlining the disjointed architecture, engineering, and construction workflow and connecting the owner closer to the Design and Construction Teams. This session features A360 Team, Collaboration for Revit, and Revit. AIA Approved

Marin Pastar graduated from Drury University in 2005 and became licensed as an architect in 2011. From the beginning of his career in 2004, Pastar has been deeply involved in 3D modeling and visualization with AutoCAD software and 3ds Max software. This evolved into a career-defining turn to Revit software and Building Information Modeling (BIM). Fascinated by BIM compared to traditional project-delivery methods, Pastar was the driving force in evolving the 11-person CAD firm into the growing, multioffice, 80-plus person, virtual design and construction (VDC) firm that Bates & Associates Architects is today. As director of innovation, Pastar is involved in all aspects of projects from design and virtual reality; to streamlining architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) workflows from planning and construction; into facility management and operation. Pastar has been a regular Autodesk University attendee and a Revit Certified Professional since 2012. He has been invited to speak about VDC at several Construction Specification Institute (CSI) and Associated General Contractors (AGC) conferences, as well as at Autodesk University 2015. Autodesk, Inc., recognized Bates as Early Technology Adopters, and produced a customer success story that you can watch at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meJ2t3BSeR4
