One of our main focuses over the past few years has been innovation and integration of technology across all of our projects. Many builders who are implementing Building Information Modeling (BIM) are using Building Suite tools for business development and preconstruction, but they are missing out on the value of using the model in the field. Learn technical processes and workflows, lessons learned, and implementation strategies from builders who are on the forefront of using BIM and related technology in the field. Field uses of BIM, Revit software, Navisworks Manage software, ReCap software, and BIM 360 Glue software are discussed, including visualization, file transfer protocol, coordination and clash detection, 4D construction simulation and scheduling, quality control coordination drawings, laser scanning, building layout quality-control measurement, linked plans, apps, and Mobile Technology Solutions. If you are interested in either using or understanding how builders are using BIM on construction sites, this practical class is for you.
- Discover key points for successfully implementing coordination using various Autodesk products
- Discover primary on-site uses (visualization, clash detection, 4D simulation, quality control, laser scanning)
- List a variety of Mobile Technology Solutions and apps, including BIM 360 Glue software and the AutoCAD 360 app and the FormIt apps
- Discover case studies that establish and enhance current standards and process using BIM on a construction site
David Epps has been in the construction industry for 19 years and has worked with Building Information Modeling (BIM) and virtual design and construction for 14 years. As a BIM manager David develops, integrates, coordinates, and manages digital intelligent models for design, construction, and facilities use post-construction. For the last several years he has been focusing on integration and consistency of BIM and related technologies across all Holder projects. This incorporates 3D visualization, options and constructability analysis; layout, laser scanning, coordination, and quality assurance /QC; 4D phasing, sequencing, and scheduling analysis; 5D quantity, cost, and attribute data extraction; mobile access of project models and documentation; and facilities management. He plays an integral role in departmental and company training, recruiting efforts, research and development, field integration, and the continual development and refinement of BIM standards and processes.
Alex Edgar received a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in construction management from the University of Florida, and he has been working in the industry for over 10 years. As an engineer in Holder Construction's Building Information Modeling (BIM) Services Group, Alex is responsible for BIM activities throughout the lifecycle of a construction project, including business development, preconstruction, and construction operations, and transitioning to facilities management. Alex has extensive experience with many project types, including data center, aviation, higher education, and corporate office projects.
