    If you’re a building information modeling (BIM) manager supporting project teams, you’ve likely spent time setting up Revit models before the team can begin their work. Even with mature templates and standards, the process of configuring a model for a team’s needs can be time consuming and inconsistent—especially in multidisciplinary practices operating across multiple markets. This session will showcase a custom “Project Create” platform implemented by HED in partnership with Proving Ground. Teams use this platform to submit project criteria—including project size, scope, disciplines, and market sectors. Using these inputs, an automated Revit process will use standard resources to create a preconfigured starter project with required levels, views, sheets, and content. The resultant models are then automatically published for the project team on BIM 360. The Project Create platform has greatly reduced BIM startup time, while increasing standards compliance across a wide-ranging portfolio of projects.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn about the importance of standardized, rigorous, and repeatable BIM project startup processes.
    • Learn how to “remote control” Revit for automated model configuration with BIM 360.
    • Learn about scalable automation strategies for Revit at the enterprise level for remote teams.
    • Learn about return-on-investment metrics used to justify investment in custom Revit and BIM 360 automation.
