    This class gives firsthand insights into the application and documented quantified benefits of bringing Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies to the field at Max Bögl Group, Germany’s largest privately owned construction company. We will discuss how we were able to deliver construction management workflows with higher quality and in significantly less time than before, and we’ll share best practice workflows for Navisworks software, BIM 360 Glue software, and BIM 360 Field software. As a highlight we will share how we enriched the regular BIM 360 software platform by creating a custom document-management system integration, linking 3D elements to detailed 2D CAD documents. The result is an automated, rule-based integration of 2D plans for 3D models with web and mobile access. A 3D object is then linked to its CAD metadata, checklists, issues, tasks, and respective (plan) documents, and it can be tracked with a QR code.
