The rebar industry is highly fragmented where the design, detailing, fabrication and installation processes are not as integrated as with other trades such as the structural steel industry. In this presentation, structural engineers and detailers will learn how the industry can transform itself to design and deliver reinforced concrete structures with greater savings and quality to the owner by engaging structural engineers as the bridge between design, fabrication and construction.
<p>A licensed California structural engineer with more than 25 years of experience in the field, David Bleiman began the transition of R+C’s practice into 3-D design and Building Information Modeling (BIM) in 2004. Today the firm has more than $3 billion of construction underway utilizing BIM. <br> Mr. Bleiman was honored by the AIACC with a Presidential Citation for his work as part of the AIACC’s Integrated Project Delivery Definition Task Group, and Autodesk honored R+C with a Revit BIM Experience Award in 2008 for its innovative use of BIM to promote integration and collaboration across the extended building team.</p>
