How many times have you heard somebody talking about implementing a Building Information Modeling (BIM) team in an architectural practice? Well, this is a different kind of story. This is the story of what happens when a whole multidisciplinary firm goes full BIM, from the concept girl to the coffee guy. Installing Revit software and Navisworks software on top of traditional tools is just the beginning of a landslide that will steamroll over the way contracts and deals are made, the time people spend training and researching, the way you’ve always dealt with consultants, the way information technology gets managed, and much much more. It's a story of adventure, conflict, passion, and resilience. And there’s a happy ending, too. This session features Revit Architecture. AIA Approved

Claudio Vittori Antisari is an architect specialized in BIM and computational design, currently working as BIM manager at Citterio-Viel & Partners, a full-BIM leading architectural firm based in Milan, Italy. During his last 7 years of experience, he got the opportunity to move to different BIM roles in different world areas—from BIM researcher to BIM consultant up to BIM manager. This exposure gave him a deep understanding of the BIM process for architectural offices.

He participates actively in the BIM national debate, taking part in BIM-related events and conferences, participating in university research groups, and giving his consultancy to governance project.
Interior designer, construction-site animal, writer, and Building Information Modeling (BIM) coordinator, Chiara Rizzarda started using Revit software in 2008. Then life took over. Acting as site surveyor for a leading designer, she worked on projects basking in historical heritage around Europe and the Middle East. After settling down, she opened Revit software again, and Italy seemed ready for BIM. She started working as a BIM coordinator, and currently employs BIM even to make coffee. She went back to living in Milan, Italy, where she was born. Her pronunciation has gotten so confused in her many travels that nobody believes she’s Italian. She’s an Autodesk Certified Instructor, and currently gives lectures and teaches Revit software in northern Italy. Rizzarda holds the position of BIM coordinator at Citterio Viel & Partners, the leading architectural and design firm in Italy, and she was an Autodesk Customer Success Story in 2015.
