    Many builders who are implementing Building Information Modeling (BIM) are using Autodesk® Revit® and Autodesk® Navisworks® software for business development and preconstruction, but are missing out on the value of using the model in the field. In this class, you will learn about technical processes and workflows, lessons learned, and implementation strategies from builders who are on the forefront of using BIM to full advantage in the field. We will discuss field use of BIM, Revit, and Navisworks for visualization, file transfer, coordination and clash detection, 4D construction simulation and scheduling, quality control coordination drawings, laser scanning, and building layout. If you are interested in either using or understanding how builders are using BIM on a construction site, this practical class is for you.

    Key Learnings

    • Describe key points for successfully implementing coordination using various Autodesk products
    • Reference case studies that establish and enhance current standards and processes for using BIM on a construction site
    • Use laser scanning, Revit, and Trimble® Total Station to verify field conditions and enhance quality control
    • Describe basic and advanced on-site uses, such as visualization, clash detection, 4D simulation, and mobile technology
