Whether your company has a rich history with Building Information Modeling (BIM) or you've recently decided to take the plunge, developing and maintaining internal training is a tall order. BuroHappold Engineering New York has developed a thorough yet practical internal training program for Revit software and Dynamo software for its offices worldwide, and the company would like to share the outcome of the challenges that it faced along the way. With 90% of the projects in the New York office being Revit based, new engineers have a limited amount of time to adjust to the technology and the corresponding company standards. This demand placed an enormous amount of pressure on the firm's BIM team to create a training program that was fast, furious, and efficient. Attendees of this presentation will leave with a clear understanding of the steps necessary for ensuring that engineers are ready to hit the ground running in Revit projects.
- Learn how to create a timeline for your training program (for BuroHappold, this meant 4 2-hour sessions of hands-on training with a BIM coordinator)
- Learn about developing content-based sessions (Revit MEP fundamentals, discipline-specific training, families and scheduling, and company standards and best practices)
- Learn how to construct training materials and best practice manuals
- Learn how to open the lines of communication between the engineer and the BIM coordinator to set up follow-up training as necessary
