    It is important for BIM/VDC departments to stay connected to drawings, submittals, and other information in order to identify any gaps and ensure that all necessary elements are incorporated in a model. Often, subcontractors coordinate against each other to produce layout and fabrication drawings for installation, and elements such as bathroom partitions, supports, metal framing, kickers/bracing, and owner-provided equipment are not included within the model for full coordination. This course will explore how VDC/BIM managers and coordinators can utilize supplemental modeling in their coordination efforts.

    Key Learnings
