In this presentation, Skanska USA Building and the University of Washington will describe results from a joint applied research study on collaborative preconstruction and planning workflows focused on model-based estimating. We'll present the workflows and toolsets for using design models in conceptual and detailed estimating for consistent use throughout the construction process. We'll also present on the value and benefits of using model-based estimation for collaboration between design and construction, and share best practices for setting up teams and processes for success. Additionally, we'll present proven practices from Skanska that include common workflow standards, and we'll show examples of how to use Revit software, Navisworks software, and Assemble to vet models for appropriateness of use, extract quantities from models, validate quantity and assembly assumptions, and then incorporate these into construction estimates.
- Learn importance of model-based estimating workflows
- Discover key drivers to success in model-based estimating workflows
- Understand lessons learned from implementation and training of workflows
- Discover advantages offered from robust model-based estimating workflows
