Electrical subs can now enter the realm of Building Information Modeling (BIM) with tools available in Revit software as part of Building Design Suite or the Autodesk collection. We will use the Texas Children's Hospital project as the backdrop of this interactive course aimed at getting electrical subs up to speed with BIM tools, and attendees will realize the benefits of using BIM on this 500,000 square-foot project. Find out what it takes to get a project of this size coordinated with mechanical, electrical, and plumbing in the narrowest of plenum spaces. This session features Revit and Fabrication CADmep.

After traveling all over the globe for renowned architectural firms (such as Gensler, PGAL, and Morris Architects), and after managing a team of experts at Autodesk reseller Total CAD Systems helping thousands realize the potential of technology as it applies to building design and construction, Dat Lien now adds entrepreneurship to his repertoire with the formation of Axoscape, a Building Information Modeling (BIM) and BIM consulting company dedicated to hiring and training local graduates. With over a decade of architectural experience, Lien combines powerful technology with the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) business so clients can stay competitive while maintaining flexibility. When he's not helping AEC firms with BIM services, he's busy with organizations such as the Houston Area Revit Users Group / BIM Peer Group, Associated General Contractors, Associated Builders and Contractors, the American Institute of Architects, A Child's Hope Foundation, and his alma matter, Texas A&M University. Utilizing his education, experience, and eagerness to help, Lien enjoys sharing ideas with others everywhere he goes.
