    There are many unique aspects to designing and building a proton treatment facility. As an emerging type of treatment for cancer, proton centers present challenges that are not like any other healthcare project. With the complexity of the systems that support this new type of treatment, the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) plays a crucial role in the development of these types of projects. In this class you will explore how the use of BIM throughout design and construction impacted the development of 2 different yet very similar proton facilities. With a unique opportunity of a consistent team but different workflows, you will experience the power that BIM presents when applied as not just an authoring tool, but also as a pathway for collaboration.

    Key Learnings

    • Discover the unique challenges that exist with proton facilities and mass concrete construction
    • Gain an understanding of how BIM can actively support a collaborative workflow
    • Learn some useful techniques within Revit for managing multiparty, collaborative design-assist workflows
    • Learn how to apply these same principles and workflows to other projects
