Since 2011 the firm HOK has been using a system to implement a minimum scope of building information modeling for all projects. HOK refers to this system internally as "BIM [Building Information Modeling] Certified." On some projects, HOK's Design and Engineering Teams are able to go far beyond BIM Certified in the pursuit of game-changing process improvement. In this class attendees will get an in-depth look at the inner workings of the David H. Koch Center, a new ambulatory care center for New York-Presbyterian Healthcare System. We will explore the successes and challenges of an integrated team that consists of 3 architecture firms, various modeling managers from trade partners, and multiple cloud-based approaches to BIM data management.
- Understand the method for a measurable BIM implementation program
- Discover the difference between traditional project-delivery methods and design assist
- Understand the process of design coordination with trade partners
- Learn about the value of managing BIM and FM data in cloud-based platforms
