Engineering firms big and small can extend their services into structural detailing by working closely with the fabricators and builders to connect design into construction. This presentation will discuss how a US-based structural BIM consultancy offers structural detailing services to their clients using BIM-based workflows. Attendees can expect to learn about why these services are offered, and what best practices should be followed to successfully implement BIM-based technologies for generating fabrication deliverables. Both Structural steel, precast concrete, and cast-in-place concrete detailing will be covered.
<p>Erich Bretz's ability to quickly and effectively solve engineering challenges has given him the opportunity to work on a wide range of construction projects including healthcare, educational, institutional, multi-family residential, resort, office, and retail projects. In the recent past, he has established himself as a leader in Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) technology. His extensive knowledge of these technologies has given him the opportunity to bring real value to Owners, GCs, fabricators, architects, and engineers on many projects. Erich holds a BS in Civil Engineering with a minor in Computer Science and an MS in Structural Engineering, all from the University of Illinois.</p>
