    Undertaking a transition from an AutoCAD environment to Revit models at The Ohio State University (OSU) provided great value for the organization. Learn how OSU converted 32 million square feet, decreasing costs, gaining higher levels of accuracy and the ability to more effectively communicate with university stakeholders. Hear from OSU how they overcame several challenges, including how to standardize models, ways to automate repetitive work, getting the most value from Revit models, and sharing and extracting data from models for facilities use. The end result is a clearly defined process to migrate CAD-based drawings, receive correct model data for new projects, a way to validate that newly created models meet OSU standards and maintain those models. Learn best practices and lessons learned from The Ohio State University’s transition to BIM.

    Key Learnings

    • Understand the benefits and value of Ohio State’s transition from AutoCAD to Revit.
    • Describe the challenges encountered building and managing a large portfolio of Revit models.
    • Identify the technology solutions Ohio State utilizes to aid in the building and maintenance of its models.
    • Review lessons learned following 8 years of developing, receiving and maintaining Revit based models.
