This class will walk through an early construction case study of a boutique dual-branded hotel in midtown Atlanta that began in January 2017. Beginning with establishing existing conditions and site logistics, working through MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) coordination and structure build up, this class will cover a wide variety of construction technology integration. Fully designed in Revit software, this project team embraced using the BIM 360 platform-including BIM 360 Docs software, BIM 360 Glue software, BIM 360 Field software, and BIM 360 Team software-to manage documentation and project coordination between the design team, general contractor, and trade contractors. We'll also explore the benefits and challenges of reality capture and photogrammetry in an urban environment using laser scanning and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flights in conjunction with the ReCap Pro software.
- Understand the potential uses and benefits to the BIM 360 platform
- Gain working knowledge of UAV usage and the ReCap Pro workflow
- Discover potential uses for laser scanning and photogrammetry during early project phases
- Discover potential benefits and challenges for BIM/VDC design team collaboration
