In this class we will show the difficulties and challenges of multidiscipline design-and-construct infrastructure projects in the Netherlands from a contractor’s point of view: What is the best way to set up your project and design-team organization? How do you manage all your data and exchange, and how you can optimize your design workflow? During the design and construct phase there are several challenges you have to deal with, such as (building) architecture, civil design, subcontractors, reinforcement supplier, and so on. The main layout of the class will contain the complete process, from conceptual design to detailed design, including the construction phase. For every step, we will zoom in on the used software, and give some best practices and optimizations people can use in their own organizations. Examples will contain 3D rebar exchange with subcontractors, AutoCAD Civil 3D software and Revit software exchange, collaboration in Revit Structure software, Navisworks software model setup, 3D deliverables, and so on. This session features Revit Structure and AutoCAD Civil 3D. AIA Approved

Eric van Wijland is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) specialist within Volker InfraDesign, the in-house design and engineering company for the infrastructure sector at VolkerWessels and owned by Van Hattum en Blankevoort. He started 7 years ago as a 3D draftsmen and he coordinated the rollout of Revit software. After this successful integration, his next goal was to implement BIM within the organization and all of its projects. Currently, he supports the Design Team with the implementation of BIM. In his opinion, BIM stands for Building Information Management, so it is his challenge to provide the projects with the latest software and best practices, and to exchange tips and workflows/processes. He loves to dive deep into the software possibilities to find the most effective solutions. He is working on different projects simultaneously so he can give the design teams all the knowledge there is. He is also a member of Civil Infra Benelux, a team of high-end Revit software users whose goal is to get a Revit software standard for the Dutch infrastructure.
I am working as a structural designer at Royal HaskoningDHV within the advisory Infrastructure Nijmegen. My responsibility as a structural designer is the desgin of fly-overs, bridges, tunnels, luices and sound barriers. Most of the time I work as a chief designer. I am of the opinion as a team leader, that a well composed team and team spirit makes a difference within the project. Besides my work for Infrastructure Nijmegen I am also a BIM consultant for the Business Line Transport & Planning and advise colleagues on the opportunities in this area. I am involved with various knowledge and expert groups both internally and externally. Having worked within the Business Line Industry & Energy for several years my interest have shifted to infrastructure projects. My specialization within this field is the design of structural and economic design.
