    In a fast-paced design-build environment, the ability to streamline and accelerate processes necessary for optimized project delivery is directly proportional to the ability to minimize information loss. Using real-life examples, we will demonstrate how complex projects and their demanding schedules be improved from the use of Autodesk Building Design Suite. The class will cover a Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow from the very beginning of the design and construction process. We will discuss how early decisions have a lasting impact on the building’s performance and lifecycle cost, explore the process of program development and client engagement using advanced visualization techniques, and finally, delve into the process of document production and coordination. This BIM-enabled workflow determines a team’s ability to collaborate and deliver a product that will exceed the client’s expectations.

    Key Learnings

    • List the dos and don'ts of multidiscipline information exchange from a client’s perspective
    • Disprove preconstruction myths about BIM-enabled project delivery
    • Implement a Building Design Suite workflow for design-build projects
    • Use Autodesk BIM-capable applications throughout the building design process
