    As mobile technology comes of age on the construction site, the use of iPads and BIM 360 Docs software can now replace the paper plans of the past. The transition to this new environment can be smooth and seamless, or it can be hindered by multiple false starts. This class will provide a live demonstration of the complete process of implementing a BIM 360 Docs project for a sample fire-protection construction project. The lessons taught in this class will have obvious application beyond the fire protection trade, but limiting the live demonstrations to a specific trade provides clarity and enables the presentation to pay some attention to the often-overlooked fire sprinkler industry. We expect the live-demonstration approach of this presentation to provide a great opportunity to understand the capabilities and value of BIM 360 Docs software to anyone involved in the process, including owner/managers, IT personnel, designers, and installers. This session features BIM 360 Docs, AutoCAD, and Revit. AIA Approved
