How can large, multidisciplinary projects be delivered in a streamlined and efficient way? Using the example of a recently delivered design of a 96,000-seat stadium featuring an enormous cable net roof, Mark will outline a unique approach to planning and implementing robust and efficient workflows that embrace the latest technological developments. The project was anchored in Autodesk Revit and Revit’s flexibility and openness was exploited to document and communicate a fully integrated building design with highly complex and irregular geometry. The class will introduce the application of “mass bespoke” thinking to a construction design project outlining how a change of mindset can demonstrably increase productivity and resilience to change. This class will change the way you think about design.

Key Learnings

  • Develop and optimise collaborative workflows between architects & engineers to eliminate waste & deliver outstanding designs
  • Free up time to think, review, and test by knowing that the project delivery is robust and on track
  • Provide an insight into the learning and development requirements of your team to compete in the digital age
  • Optimise solutions that are sustainable, coordinated, buildable and can be flexible to accommodate future change
