How can Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows reduce the disconnect between document production and design intent visualization? This discussion will focus on taking a Revit BIM model into visualization and the production effort required. We'll cover a variety of visual communication platforms, from still images to panoramic images to interactive, dynamic virtual reality (VR). This roundtable will cover methods of accurate BIM visualization as well as isolated visual efforts with respect to production time and quality.
- Learn about visualization products based on needs and stage of project
- Learn how to evaluate workflows and methods for creating desired products efficiently
- Learn how to choose software applicable to workflow and product goals
- Learn how to prepare hardware to meet software and efficiency requirements
As a BIM & Visualization Leader at Bates, Rich has developed unique workflows that encourage consistent, accurate visual communication throughout the design process while improving construction document quality and efficiency. He has educated collegiate students, professionals, and colleagues in methods of visual communication and workflows tying interior design, visualization, and BIM modeling. Rich utilizes technology to ensure an informed design process and more useful deliverable for the owner, contractor, and operator. He created workflows that integrate visualization and construction documentation, improving accuracy and efficiency. Over a decade of experience in hospitality and medical industries also allows Rich a unique contribution when designing and developing projects with stringent code requirements and end users in mind.
As a BIM & Enhanced Integration Leader at Bates, Megan has aided in the development and utilization of the firm’s fast-paced and ever-changing technological efforts. She has worked extensively with Bates’ partners to enhance collaboration efforts throughout all phases of design and construction, even bringing on new consultants in trades not typically involved until Construction Administration. This additional up-front effort has proven to increase efficiency at all levels of the project thereafter. Although her role at Bates often includes the development of technical drawings, her true passion is design. Megan studied design, both architectural and graphic, at a collegiate level and is one of few team members that is proficient in the use of visualization software, while also utilizing her technical expertise in the creation of documents and specifications for construction. With nearly a decade of experience, Megan has come to appreciate what technology can do for true innovation within the AEC industry and beyond.
