    Unlocking model data to de-risk planning and drive execution is one of the biggest efficiency gains and business differentiators available to contractors. However, the current era of construction is filled with information handoffs, leading to an environment of distrust and models that are unfit for purpose. The phrase "garbage in, garbage out” couldn't be more accurate regarding 3D models. We simply can't trust that models have sufficient accuracy to drive execution workflows—until now. Industry-leading teams are now using tools and technology to ensure model quality. Construction-ready models help accelerate and fine-tune downstream activities like quantity takeoffs, constructability studies, earned value analysis, and more. In this session, forward-thinking building information modeling (BIM) and virtual design and construction (VDC) teams at ERA Contour, Mortenson, Mott MacDonald, and Fortis Construction will share how they approach the design models to ensure quality and accuracy, increasing cost certainty and reducing rework during execution.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how the right BIM approach can help identify design flaws and cost impacts early on.
    • Learn more about the processes VDC leaders put in place to perform quality control.
    • Discover what it means for a model to be "construction ready” and why it matters.
    • Learn how to foster an environment of trust in the model.
