This presentation will discuss the ways in which the construction of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights (http://www.cchrpartnership.org/) in Atlanta, Georgia, employed Building Information Modeling (BIM). Due to the fast pace of the project and the complex nature of the design, BIM played a crucial role in coordinating work, driving quality, and keeping the project on schedule. This presentation will address the many ways that project participants used Autodesk, Inc., tools—primarily Revit software and Navisworks project review software—during the project to solve problems beyond coordination between mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) and fire protection (FP). We will include examples of how Revit users can solve geometrically complex problems that are normally left for Rhino software users to tackle, and how you can lay those solutions out in the field.

Key Learnings

  • Learn how to coordinate complex building-skin elements using Revit software and Navisworks project review software
  • Layout model-based coordination in the field manually or using Point Layout software
  • Better plan and solve problems using laser scanning (working in ReCap software, Revit software, AutoCAD software, and Navisworks software)
  • Learn how to coordinate complex interior spaces, focusing on quality not clashes
