This class will present a real-world experience of writing a Building Information Modeling (BIM) strategic plan for an office. A BIM strategic plan is organizing a 3-year blueprint for all things related to BIM and Revit software, from drafting to analysis. The plan identifies office operation areas that need improvement and outlines new software avenues to explore. We will list specific tasks that need to occur with office operations for designing and drafting a building. We will also go through the process of creating the plan, including goals and action plans. Finally, we will discuss implementing and revising the plan, along with addressing successes and lessons learned. This session features Revit and Navisworks Review. AIA Approved
