In this class, we will show how a top academic medical center collaborated with a BIM-driven architectural firm to deliver a Building Information Modeling (BIM) implementation plan. This plan transformed data about 53 buildings, totaling more than 6 million square feet of existing facility space, from a traditional 2D AutoCAD® format to an intelligent BIM environment using Autodesk® Revit® Architecture. The implementation focused on not only the technical aspects and best practices of using Revit Architecture, but also included developing a much deeper BIM expertise to ensure the long-term success and continued use of the models for future growth across the campus. The project team leaders will present how they have developed these models to use multiple Autodesk platforms to share facility information with a diverse campus-wide staff. This process has improved the quality and speed of decision making with regard to facility planning, renovation, maintenance, wayfinding, and energy consumption.
