This class will showcase the Piedmont Atlanta Hospital Marcus Tower expansion and the all-in virtual design involvement on this project. We'll explain how to utilize models and BIM Team/C4R for Revit's cloud-based products and services for multiple aspects of the project, including the involvement in preconstruction for marketing, estimating, and self-perform opportunities; the integration of drone flights and parametric, in-house crane models for site logistics and safety planning; virtual reality for headwall mock-ups; and structural review. We'll complete the discussion with lessons learned for workflow, full-team integration, and training for the all-in approach.
- Utilizing BIM Team/C4R /Collaboration for Revit
- Learn how to use models for preconstruction and self-perform work
- Learn how to use drone data and VR coupled with 3D underground coordination for team deliverables, site logistics, and job-site safety: innovation for change
- Incorporate lessons learned in workflow, training/buy-in, and integration of the virtual job site
Kelly Orji is a licensed architect with 8 years of experience and a passion for architecture as well as healthcare design in-particular.
