Complete modeling of reinforcement is not simply about the production of rebar fabrication data. In an integrated team environment it brings value to the entire team by fostering better design decision and more innovative solutions. In this presentation we will demonstrate how structural designers working in collaboration with the constructors can improve their designs, reduce risk and create an atmosphere that encourages collaboration and innovation with constructors.
<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>
