This roundtable discussion will focus on topics that are critical to the rebar process when an integrated delivery approach is used. Engineers, detailers, fabricators, installers, and general contractors are invited to come and share their thoughts about what is important to ensure the success of a cast-in-place concrete project. We will discuss new tools such as the Revit software-aSa link as a means to discover what future improvements are coming to Revit software. We will also discuss material, fabrication, delivery, installation, and general constructability issues that commonly arise for a variety of concrete systems. And we will examine strategies for maintaining quality and ensuring productivity of all stakeholders.
- Learn about the most critical workflows that impact quality and productivity of all aspects of the rebar process
- Discover best practices that should be followed by stakeholders when utilizing an integrated approach to rebar delivery
- Discover common rebar design, detailing, fabrication, and installation issues that may occur— and how to mitigate these issues
- Discuss the inputs that have the greatest impact on success or failure of a project from the perspective of each stakeholder
Erich Bretz's ability to quickly and effectively solve engineering challenges has given him the opportunity to work on a wide range of construction projects including healthcare, educational, institutional, multifamily residential, resort, office, and retail projects. In the recent past, he has established himself as a leader in Building Information Modeling (BIM) and virtual design and construction (VDC) technology. His extensive knowledge of these technologies has given him the opportunity to bring real value to owners, general contractors, fabricators, architects, and engineers on many projects. Bretz holds a BS in civil engineering with a minor in computer science, and an MS in structural engineering, all from the University of Illinois.
