Large, complex, and in the cloud? No problem! Corgan, Gensler, Turner Construction, and PCL—all major players in the design and construction industry working together to simultaneously access data while maintaining firm individuality and capitalizing on connections to their corporate infrastructure. This proposal will discuss our use of A360 cloud-based collaboration service and A360 Collaboration for Revit cloud service on the Los Angeles International Airport Midfield Satellite Concourse, with a focus on staff management, model management, and consultant management. We will cover why we chose A360 and A360 Collaboration for Revit, how we set up A360 and A360 Collaboration for Revit, how we structured the model in the cloud, how to execute a large complex project in the cloud, and what the benefits are of multiple-office collaboration. Attendees will come out of this presentation with a clear understanding of how to successfully set up and execute A360 cloud-based collaboration service and A360 Collaboration for Revit cloud service on large complex projects. This session features A360 and Collaboration for Revit. AIA Approved

Since graduating from University of California, Los Angeles, with a Master of Architecture degree in 2004, Steven Knudsen has focused on the design and documentation of large-scale complex projects while capitalizing on Building Information Modeling (BIM) / digital design. Knudsen thrives when working in a collaborative environment between the owner, architect, and contractor, always searching for solutions that benefit the team as a whole. Some projects Knudsen has worked on include Palomar Medical Center (American Institute of Architects Technology in Architectural Practice BIM Award), Cedars-Sinai Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion (presented at USC BIM Conference), Farmers Field, Shanghai Disneyland, Sands Cotai Central, Motiongate Dubai, and Midfield Satellite Concourse (presenting at Midwest University). In dealing with such large-scale projects, Knudsen pushes toward an integrated project delivery approach.
