    Do you ever ask yourself these questions: I’m still working in 2D, how can I get myself to the third dimension? What are the best workflows for schedule and budget to model my site? Well, you’re not the only one. Speed and accuracy in our files is crucial, and it can be difficult to coordinate across disciplines if we aren’t working in 3D. This session will guide the audience through different workflows and the best ways to develop a site using BIM (Building Information Modeling). We will examine case studies where sites were modeled using Revit software and 3ds Max software. We will journey through best practices on modeling techniques that encompass the design process from documentation to visualization. By the end of this course, you will understand the process of implementing BIM software for site development.

    Key Learnings

    • Discover the different workflows toward site development in 3D
    • Understand the effective use between Landscape and Revit
    • Learn how to justify the early cost associated with modeling the site through the different workflows
    • Understand the strengths and limitations of BIM software with landscape/site development
