    Denver International Airport (DEN) is more than 23 years old and currently going through major redevelopment, including adding 33 new gates to all of its concourses and renovating the main terminal. Having already constructed the Westin Hotel and Convention Center with the aid of BIM (Building Information Modeling) and cloud collaboration, DEN has gone full-blown with implementing BIM 360 Docs software for the Main Terminal Renovation, a.k.a. The Great Hall project. It was the logical choice and platform. The intelligent models needed to be centralized and collaborate with several design teams across different offices throughout the United States and South America. We'll present our approaches, challenges (there were undoubtedly plenty), and solutions from project kickoff through construction. BIM 360 Docs software became the single source of truth for a large and complex project. Autodesk products used in the project include BIM 360 Docs, BIM 360 Glue software, BIM 360 Field software, Revit 2018 software, and Navisworks Manage 2018 software.

    Key Learnings
