    Building Information Modeling (BIM) is dominating the design, construction, and management of much of the vertical construction field, and has now started to gain the attention of the hydropower industry. At present, the more advanced examples of using BIM are from other industries. However, there are a growing number of examples of BIM adoption for hydropower projects. This presentation will demonstrate how BIM has been applied to hydroelectric facility design and rehabilitation, and we will look at the lessons learned and challenges based on recent experiences. Examples will include reality capture, parametric design, clash detection, visualization, engineering integration, quantity schedule, 4D modeling, A360 software for collaboration, BIM 360 mobile and web platform for engineering services in construction, and the adoption of new technologies like virtual reality and augmented reality. Even for the audience outside of the hydro industry, we would like to provide an insight into the use of BIM on any built environment. This session features Revit and InfraWorks 360. AIA Approved
