Are you unsure of how much detail you should show in your 3D model? See real-life examples of how a design-build mechanical contractor saved time and money by utilizing a unified workflow to produce a truly constructible 3D Revit software model from design through construction. This lecture will highlight how to set up personnel infrastructure to optimize software usage; how to describe the expectations that your design model should meet from a contractor's perspective; and how to identify techniques to incorporate early constructability feedback to enhance design. Through the use of a carefully planned unified workflow, the 3D design model can enhance your opportunities for prefabrication, utility racking, modular construction, streamlined coordination, expedited conflict resolution, and increased job site safety.
- Identify the appropriate level of coordination required in the 3D model by design professionals
- Learn how to form strategies that help communication between design and field to provide constructability feedback in the design process
- Learn how to create a Revit software model that can be efficiently referenced by contractors to develop coordination drawings
- Learn how to sequence the 3D model level of completion to sync with construction phasing to enhance coordination
