This class will cover using Autodesk, Inc.’s, cloud-based applications to encourage trade partner collaboration on construction projects. We will cover using BIM 360 Glue software for designer coordination and collaboration, as well as trade partners. We will demonstrate generating equipment sets in BIM 360 Glue software to be shared to BIM 360 Field software. The geometry for these equipment sets is 3D text in the Revit software file; these equipment sets are then mapped in BIM 360 Field software to room numbers, bar codes are assigned to the room numbers, and printed bar codes are adhered to the doorframes in the field. This enables our trade partners to simply scan the bar code, which then takes them to the room location. They can then utilize the “show model” tab to quickly get to the same spot in the model. We will also demonstrate how you can use the equipment set in the quality process and the punch-list process through the use of checklists, issues, attachments, and tasks.
- Gain a general understanding of equipment sets in BIM 360 Glue and BIM 360
- Learn how to create equipment sets in BIM 360 Glue
- Learn how to map equipment sets in BIM 360 Field
- Learn how to use the equipment mapping to enhance the quality workflow on construction
Tom Roszak is PCL Construction’s construction modeling manager for the Minneapolis District. Tom has over 28 years of experience in the design build industry, working as an architectural project manager, draftsman, and modeler for general contractors, real estate developers, and design firms based in Minnesota. He holds an associate’s degree in architectural technology from Dakota County Technical College. With PCL, Tom’s focus is on developing virtual construction models to assist with construction planning and sequencing, systems clash detection, and trade partner coordination and collaboration.
Derrick D. Deering is a civil engineer (engineer in training) at PCL Construction Services, Inc. Derrick’s daily responsibilities include review and resolution of field coordination issues with the Project Team. He interprets plans and specifications, coordinates details for subcontractors, and supports daily safety efforts. He handles process administration tasks to include submittals, scheduling and planning, project documentation, and material procurement. He also leads virtual construction efforts on site, including trade-partner coordination, training in BIM 360 Field software, project layout, and utilization of the model to limit rework and improve project quality. Creating new, more-streamlined processes that engineer positive change is what drives him. He enjoys applying the latest technology to new environments, using it in unintended contexts, and then sitting back and watching innovation take hold. Using software in new ways or just pushing it to the edge of its own limitations often leads to new ways of doing things.
