This class details the process of implementing information modeling at a large multidiscipline firm with nationwide locations. Highlights include evaluation methods of existing technology, strategies for incorporating company acquisitions, and the importance of understanding the role of the human factor when building workflows that challenge proven and conventional methods. Understand how standardization enables synchronization of processes and how to ensure that implementation efforts remain global in scope.
- Create an implementation roadmap for your company
- Evaluate existing resources
- Collect feedback by exposing a sample group to new technology
- Build an internal support structure

From 2001 to 2006, he taught a variety of courses at the high school and college level that incorporated flagship programs such as AutoCAD, Architectural Desktop, Inventor, and Revit. In mid-2006, he made the transition from education to the building engineering industry and advanced from CAD Operator to BIM Manager by leading Revit implementations at two different engineering firms.In early 2010, Seth transferred from one of Dewberry's satellite offices to the Virtual Design Group to assist in developing an implementation plan and company-wide support structure for BIM technology. He authored and delivered a multi-tiered instructional program for Revit MEP, Revit Structure, and Navisworks. Seth is currently involved in training and implementation efforts for Civil 3D and AutoCAD Plant. He is an Advisory Board Member of the RevitDC user group and is considered one of metropolitan DC's top Revit MEP experts.
As Dewberry's Director of Virtual Design, Jennifer Taylor is responsible for leading the strategic direction for the implementation of BIM throughout the firm for both horizontal and vertical practice areas.
