In Australia, procuring and delivering infrastructure projects digitally is still in its infancy. We need to encourage our clients and not confuse-simplicity is the key. We've all heard the cliché "a picture tells a thousand words," but there's real value in using images to promote engineering content. Images help us learn, grab attention, explain tough concepts, and inspire. Master Information Delivery Plans (MIDP) and levels of detail (LOD), which are usually very detailed wordy descriptions, can be easily represented through diagrams-which can then be used as a basis for developing Task Information Delivery Plans (TIDP). I have used these diagrams successfully on projects with government clients, and can easily explain the required inputs, what will be delivered through the milestones of delivery, and the outputs at each stage of project delivery. This will also let you build content within Building Information Modeling (BIM)-enabled platforms for consistency in delivery.
- Learn how to plan successful implementation of digital engineering on infrastructure projects (bridges and alignment)
- Learn how to customize AutoCAD Civil 3D and Revit with relevant content consistent with BIM Execution Plan
- Learn how to educate clients on the benefits of delivery digital engineering on infrastructure projects
- Learn how to increase your organization’s BIM capabilities and formalize consistent workflows
With over 20 years working in the infrastructure engineering industry and 12 years utilising BIM enabled platforms, my experience is extensive and varied. Working closely with clients to not only deliver to scope, but to educate and present alternate methods of for efficient delivery.My current role as Associate Technical Director for Digital Engineering at Arcadis Australia, I am responsible for not only implementing the Arcadis Digital Engineering global strategy, but also the digital engineering strategy for all projects.
