    Clash detection and coordination, though not an entirely new concept, has gained traction in recent years. It is a process of discovering the areas or elements that could possibly clash-or, in other words, would occupy the same space. It helps to reveal design conflicts before construction. However, most projects the class presenter has been involved with or has observed do not allocate enough budget for this process, and people still use a conventional 2D-drawing review method for quality assurance / quality control. This class will cover best practices of model clash review during the design phases and methods of tracking the revised/approved status. Today's challenge is how to manage the clashes efficiently besides just locating the clashes, because most tools identify the clash location precisely. Moreover, with recent technologies like virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), we can simulate the walk-through experience for a better communication with clients and team members.
