    Follow a real-world case study of how one developer changed his entire process from old school to current and forward-thinking in a single project. Learn how using Revit software prototypes can help improve the financial pro-forma to optimize the site plan, unit mix, and net rentable for the building. Rapid design visualization and iterations help minimize construction cost by 10% and maximize revenue by as much as 5%. Eventually, converting a similar building from CAD to Revit software and automating the creation of construction documentation for architecture, structural, and MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) can save months of the CD timeline. Design visualization of Revit models using A360 cloud-based collaboration service and BIM 360 Docs software helped the architecture, engineering, and construction team see changes in days versus months—and in 3D on their phones versus paper sheets. Learn how a change order saved $500,000 and was implemented in one week versus 6 months. Renderings enabled rapid optimization of materials and the procurement of long lead-time items. This session features BIM 360 Docs, A360, and Revit Architecture. AIA Approved
