As Project Integrator on the B2 Modular Housing Project at Atlantic Yards in Brooklyn, New York, SHoP Construction (SC) is currently implementing the Autodesk BIM 360 Glue™ cloud-based management solution to provide comprehensive collaboration across the project team and model supply chain. Starting in 2010 on the Barclays Center Arena in Brooklyn, NY, SHoP Construction prototyped a web-based portal that enabled project stakeholders to track the fabrication and installation progress of 12,000 uniquely sized weathered steel panels for the facade. The constantly updated SC 4D sequencing model evolved into a critical tool for the design-build team to understand the impact of production and schedule changes. This class will focus on how Autodesk BIM 360 services and web-based portals enable improved project visualization and information access for all project stakeholders. The class will demonstrate how to move from linear workflows to real-time collaboration with hyperlinks to access live data. We will highlight how the project team is using Autodesk BIM 360 to streamline the team’s transition from design development through to the factory production phase of the work for the largest prefab modular building in the world

Key Learnings

  • List BIM coordination and collaboration best practices for prefabrication and preconstruction
  • Use technology to support real-time project collaboration
  • Use cloud computing for project coordination
  • Align process and technology to ensure all stakeholders participate
