The class will cover the use of BIM 360 and Beck Technology’s DESTINI Estimator integration. We will explore how this integration came to be and why it is important for collaborative project teams. We will show how to connect to BIM 360 models from within the Estimator platform and perform 3D quantity takeoff for an estimate. We will show the tools’ use on real-world projects and showcase future developments of the integration by using the Forge development platform.
- Learn how to use BIM 360 and Estimator for 3D quantity takeoff
- Learn how to prepare BIM files for better quantity takeoff and estimating
- Discover opportunities for BIM managers and estimators to collaborate
- Learn how to reduce the amount of time needed to perform 3D quantity takeoff
As Director, Andy is responsible for strategic planning and implementation of VDC technology. Andy’s tenure at PARIC has focused on developing a forward-looking technology plan that integrates cloud-based design and field tools with processes that enable PARIC’s extended project teams to be more collaborative and efficient. With an architectural background, Andy has utilized technology to create building design solutions and compelling presentations. The convergence of AEC technology and a variety of industry experience has enabled Andy to lead an active VDC team with a focus on design and field innovation. Andy and his team work with various technology providers to influence the development of new tools and processes, and this interaction enables their support of PARIC’s core business units. Their use of reality-capture and field layout technology enables better coordinated projects, and highly accurate control for the installation of MEP systems and structural prefab components. The use of integrated technologies has further enabled PARIC field teams to focus on ‘building’ with significant reductions in design related issues.
