We all know that sharing CAD and Building Information Modeling (BIM) data with project team members who are outside of your organization has its challenges—especially in an integrated project delivery (IPD) environment. Each project faces challenges such as data-sharing methods, how often to share data, how to work with geographically dispersed teams, the potential of working with different partners on each project, figuring out who owns what, and solving how the team accesses the data. Attendees of this roundtable session have the benefit of learning what works and what doesn't work on these types of projects based upon real-world, honest feedback from a group of their peers who are living through these project-related challenges. Participants also have the opportunity to share their BIM/IPD experiences with others.
- Determine the best methods for sharing data (WAN, FTP data transfer, exports, and so on) throughout the project team
- Acquire the proper information to develop best practices for BIM and IPD collaboration among multiple disciplines and multiple firms
- Assemble lessons learned for working in a multi-firm, BIM, and IPD process based upon real-world feedback from others
- Get real-world tips from others about working with team members who are not using the same software as the rest of the team
With over two decades using and supporting a wide range of CAD software packages and with duties/responsibilities that have included training, managing and organizing teams, Brett brings a real-life understanding of what works and what does not work with today’s CAD and BIM technologies. Actively bringing together diverse teams to work as cohesive teams to both improve discipline coordination and also to build in the long term value associated with intelligent building models is a challenge that is constantly evolving. Brett stays on the leading edge of this technology, by contributing to/participating in multiple online CAD user support groups and industry focus groups. Brett is a multi-year Speaker at Autodesk University, has presented at the Revit Technology Conference and Midwest University. He is also an AutoCAD and Revit Architecture Certified Professional, has earned CANBIM BP3 recognition and is AGC CM-BIM Certified.
