    SAIC is providing engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) on a $225 million design-build project to create a renewal energy plant in Plainfield, Connecticut. This case study will showcase how we took full advantage of a large number of technologies such as Autodesk® Revit® software, the AutoCAD® Revit® family of suites, and Intergraph® CADWorx® in the office to come up with a state-of-the-art complex industrial design. Next, we pushed the envelope by deploying a complete virtual design and construction (VDC) and mobile technology environment in the field to manage the tight construction schedule. Join members of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology team to discuss the workflow of managing Revit software models and imports and exports of the industrial models and to find out what software (including apps) enabled us to use BIM in the field on our most prestigious and critical design-build project in the organization.

    Key Learnings

    • Take BIM to the construction site
    • Put together proper documentation to support the process
    • Manage workflow for various intelligent models
    • Support a true design-build BIM project in the office and in the field
