Hunt/AECOM has had success using Navisworks software as a 3D and 4D collaboration tool. The net result has always been good, however, the process of using Navisworks software has resulted in teams not having the latest information. With BIM 360 Glue software, we can have a live link or real-time data connecting all of the trade data in one cloud model. Using the Blue Ciel project and others, this presentation will demonstrate how to coordinate construction Building Information Modeling (BIM) and maintain construction schedules. Hunt/AECOM uses BIM 360 Glue software to involve all stakeholders. This session features BIM 360 Glue and BIM 360 Field. AIA Approved

Norm Akin is a kayak fisherman, cigar aficionado, and uber-geek. Currently he is the BIM Manager for the South Region of Hunt/AECOM and has spent 30 years using Autodesk, Inc., products. He has a varied background in construction, architecture, manufacturing, and training. Because he can coordinate all aspects of a project he works together with architects, engineers, and contractors to guarantee a successful project. In addition to his work at Hunt/AECOM he works as one of the AGC BIM trainers on a national level. Just like fishing, BIM is a passion for Norm and he is always trying to improve the process by adding new technology such as drone capture or LIDAR scanning or even designing the perfect lure. Thanks to Norm’s vast background, he can quickly identify process problems, create solutions, and instruct others within the company culture. He first taught at AU in 2006 which was his second AU to attend.
