    Capitalizing on Revit software for the field is the key to fully implementing Building Information Modeling (BIM) and virtual design and construction (VDC) in the construction industry. By examining some landmark projects—such the Miami All Aboard Station, Hard Rock Hollywood, and other projects—attendees will learn the importance of fully modeling outside conditions, cranes, formwork, and other construction-related activities to understand constructability and how this impacts costs and schedules. Bringing the models to the field does not stop at coordination, and by correctly modeling how work is placed and utilizing parameters, modelers can provide extremely detailed quantities and approaches to the field and estimating at a subcontractor level. This class will also demonstrate the importance of estimators getting involved in the modeling process. Back with examples from landmark projects, the course will show how a model-based takeoff methodology is more accurate and more efficient than are traditional estimation methods. This session features Revit, AutoCAD, and BIM 360 Glue. AIA Approved
