Small firms are often left behind when it comes to technology and training. From a small-firm perspective, this class explores the implementation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools, including 3D scanning, ReCap software, Revit software, Navisworks software, and AutoCAD Civil 3D software. This class will attempt to define workflow processes that work in a smaller firm and that will not overwhelm users. We will define level of development (LOD) levels and differences in BIM practices from traditional construction documentation practices. We will discuss how to get staff on board with BIM technology changes and how to define your company’s BIM mission statement by using real-world examples and case studies.
- Discover the BIM process as it applies to small to mid-size AEC firms, including LOD levels and BIM objectives
- Learn how to define a company BIM mission statement
- Learn how to evaluate software needs and integration/implementation, in particular in regards to ReCap, Revit, Navisworks, and AutoCAD Civil 3D
- Learn how to create contagious enthusiasm for BIM at all company levels
