This class helps you explore the actual application of industry BIM standards, such as Industry Foundation Classes, COBie, and Levels of Development. How do these standards affect professional services agreements and deliverables? How will they affect design team collaboration? How will they support healthy competition while increasing quality and reducing costs for owners? We demonstrate examples of IFC and COBie exporting from Revit®-based software as well as samples of levels of development for use in model-sharing agreements. Extended discussion explores the actual application of industry BIM standards and the effects they have on professional services agreements, project delivery, and collaboration.
- Identify the benefits and use cases of open standards for BIM data
- Optimally prepare Revit models for export to open data standards
- Describe how levels of development (LOD) are applied to modeling in Revit and how they affect professional services
- Describe the benefits and limitations of model-based project delivery over documents
James is a registered architect in New York State and has worked on a wide variety of projects ranging from high-end residential to large transportation projects. His experience includes budgeting, programming, code analysis, design and construction documentation, shop drawing review, client relations, and construction administration. In 1999, he landed at SOM and transformed his technology skills into a 10-year span as a digital design manager. In this capacity, he pioneered the implementation of building information modeling (BIM) on such projects as One World Trade Center, a.k.a. Freedom Tower.He is a co-founder of the NYC Revit Users Group and is an adjunct lecturing professor at the NYU School for Continuing and Professional Studies as well as the Polytechnic Institute of NYU. James is also the author of the best-selling book series, "Mastering Revit Architecture" which is published by John Wiley and Sons.
