When firms and organizations initially transition to a Building Information Modeling (BIM) process, they are frequently overwhelmed by decisions and the impacts to their business that BIM requires. This class helps you determine what resources to dedicate to each stage of the building design process in an architectural BIM practice and which decisions are critical to make versus those that can be put off until later. We also discuss the various tools found in Building Design Suite and how they can be integrated into your workflow to allow your data to be migrated from one phase of the design process to the next. Stop getting lost in unnecessary minutiae and start making BIM work for you.
- Identify the appropriate Building Design Suite software tools for the workflows in the BIM process
- Identify the correct level of detail for each stage of design
- Migrate data from one stage of design and from one discipline or workflow to another
- Identify ways to use the BIM model to provide more billable services and to realize more internal benefits
