    With our post-pandemic industry emerging into a new normal, our designers and engineers are now looking to technology to enhance collaboration and improve efficiency. With Civil 3D software we now have functionality to provide users with standards to drive consistency in workflows. We’ll review the process GHD developed to restructure Civil 3D templates, providing its teams with the necessary standardization and functionality—from small sites to large building information modeling (BIM) megaprojects. We’ll show you how to rethink template deployment, and what content to distribute. Learn how to restructure your templates using the best practice uses. We’ll share some of our tricks to maximize the benefits templates can offer. Using Dynamo and reference templates, we’ll demonstrate how we used property sets to automate the way GHD enriches the metadata in our intelligent models. We’ll cover the initial challenges, solutions, and ways we improved efficiency and realized more project cost savings.
