The country’s leading mechanical contractors were some of the earliest adopters of Building Information Modeling (BIM) due to the vast potential for off-site prefabrication. Nearly ten years after its first BIM project, J.C. Cannistraro is sharing some lessons learned from modeling, fabricating, and building some of the most high-profile hospital and biotech projects in the Northeast. Using primarily Autodesk® Navisworks® and Autodesk® Fabrication software, we will explain how we use collaborative thinking, Lean methodology, and BIM tools throughout the preconstruction and construction phases to maximize the efficiency of delivery and installation on every project.

Key Learnings

  • Identify ways to implement Lean methods into mechanical trades
  • Quantify savings opportunities derived from Lean BIM applications
  • Explain how mechanical contractors use BIM tools for prefabrication
  • Describe a real-life application of Autodesk Fabrication products
