There's no doubt that Building Information Modeling (BIM) has radically changed how today's construction management and field operations function at a root level. Understanding how to best use BIM in today's complex construction projects takes a lot of work. This class will focus on how to use today's architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) BIM software in your field operations with BIM coordination, virtual design and construction (VDC) processes, field layout, and creation of as-builts. We'll focus on some advanced techniques and best practices in Revit software in order to help facilitate an easier BIM coordination process using Navisworks Manage software. We also look into how Point Layout, Total Stations, and related tools have revolutionized how trade subcontractors optimize their processes and facilitate prefabrication and installation. We'll also cover the current developments in Revit software's latest fabrication capabilities and how it is supplanting the traditional AutoCAD market share.
- Learn about and learn how to optimize the BIM coordination process in construction projects of any size
- Learn how to implement advanced Revit techniques to better aid downstream construction processes (such as construction administration, RFI/change order control, quantity takeoff and estimating, 3D clash detection and coordination, and 4D time-based simulations)
- Learn how to use advanced Navisworks Manage tips and tricks for organizing and running an efficient BIM coordination process
- Learn how to use Navisworks software's 2D and 3D capabilities to aid in document control
Matt Stachoni is currently the BIM Manager at Tutor Perini Building Corp, implementing BIM for their Preconstruction and Estimating groups and performing BIM Coordination / VDC services for projects in the field. Matt has 30 years of experience as a BIM, CAD, and IT manager for a number of prominent AEC firms and has been using Autodesk software professionally since 1987. Prior to joining Tutor Perini, Matt was a BIM Specialist with Microsol Resources, an Autodesk Premier Partner in New York City, Philadelphia, and Boston, where he provided software training, BIM implementation and specialized consultation services, and technical support for all of Autodesk’s AEC applications. Matt was also the BIM and IT Manager for Erdy McHenry Architecture LLC, Bernardon, and several other design firms in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Boston, MA. He is a contributing writer for AUGIWorld Magazine, and 2017 marks his 19th consecutive year attending Autodesk University and his 15th year as a speaker.
