As the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) continues on its path towards fully utilizing BIM, ensuring that the private sector understands what is required to deliver a BIM-based project is paramount to success. This class will discuss the collaborative development of the USACE BIM contract language, discuss requirements, list deliverables, and explain the USACE BIM project execution plan (PxP) template and the new Minimum Modeling Matrix (M3). The class will be followed by a followup roundtable session for extensive, interactive Q&A with attendees and members from the USACE BIM/Advisory Committee. If you'd like to participate in the roundtable discussions, sign up for classes AB7040-R or AB7380-R.
- Correctly implement USACE BIM and PxP template requirements
- Learn from the successes and challenges of the USACE in implementing BIM-based delivery
- Explain the history of USACE BIM and PxP template requirements
- Explain the intent of USACE BIM and PxP template requirements

As a BIM Manager at McCarthy Building companies my primary goal is to bring new technology into our daily practice by creating procedures and tools that can be used by everyone. I am able to achieve these goals because of a unique background that combines a wide variety of field supervisory experience in construction, surveying, and high level computer use. In construction I have worked out in the field performing layout or supervisory functions on projects that include highways, shoreline reconstruction, bridges, airports, high-end residential condos, structural retrofits, historic renovations, hospitals, and schools. I have combined that practical knowledge with the ability to interface with computers down to the programming level to find a successful role in BIM at McCarthy. I currently handle all 3D modeling and implementation for our Texas Division as well as chair the BIM Tech Leadership Committee which as a group handles implementation of BIM for all divisions.
