    This class will present a comparative study of 5 European hospitals that Brunet Saunier Architecture conducted, based on 45 criteria. We will develop some of these criteria and explain the need to adapt the projects to local cultures. We will also present some of the BIM (Building Information Modeling) management workflows used for the Lariboisière Hospital in Paris (France). We used Revit software to manage the space planning for more than 2,600 hospital rooms. We also used BIM 360 Docs software to collaborate with all the stakeholders (including the owner/operator). In addition, we used Navisworks software to perform coordination during the design phase.
