This session concerns the design of an office-building project wherein Building Information Modeling (BIM) was not considered in the design contract, but was initiated once the project had started. During this class, we will share our experience of managing 2 architects, 2 structural engineering companies, and an MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) engineering company, with respect to an ongoing BIM execution plan. The class shows that convincing the design team to integrate BIM processes is essential to respond to owner’s goals. We will explain how to convert the project conditions and requirements into BIM processes. The class specifically will focus on modeling scheduling according to an existing SNCF railway platform (geometric and acoustic conditions), and constraints due to existing structures. It also will focus on processes that cover the uses of the Revit software model to respond to estimation and sustainable-information models. In addition, we will talk about how we were able to submit the design earlier in the process for facade construction. This session features Revit and Navisworks Manage.
- Learn the process for BIM management
- Learn about the key for BIM in Design Team
- Learn about added value for building owners
- Learn about Revit BIM uses
Jean-Paul Trehen is technical director of Building Information Modeling (BIM) by Egis in charge of strategical BIM definition for Egis Group (an engineering company with more than 12,000 employees around the world). His roles and responsibilities are BIM deployment and business development in the building department. Previously, he worked as an independent BIM consultant for 2 years and then as BIM specialist for 8 years at Autodesk, Inc. His activities give him the opportunity to manage BIM work groups for Mediaconstruct (French chapter of BuildingSmart), participate in the think tank for Syntec (professional engineering organization), and report to PTNB (Plan de Transition Numérique pour le Batiment)—the national government organization for BIM deployment and adoption in France. He’s involved in BIM master’s programs at prestigious French universities such as École des Ponts ParisTech and École Spéciale des Travaux Publics, and he has contributed to the book BIM et Maquette Numérique (Eyrolles, 2014)
