There's no doubt that Building Information Modeling (BIM) has radically changed how today's construction management and field operations function at a root level. Understanding how to best use BIM in today's complex construction projects takes a lot of work. This class will focus on how to use today's architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) BIM software in your field operations with BIM coordination, virtual design and construction (VDC) processes, field layout, and creation of as-builts. We'll focus on some advanced techniques and best practices in Revit software in order to help facilitate an easier BIM coordination process using Navisworks Manage software. We also look into how Point Layout, Total Stations, and related tools have revolutionized how trade subcontractors optimize their processes and facilitate prefabrication and installation. We'll also cover the current developments in Revit software's latest fabrication capabilities and how it is supplanting the traditional AutoCAD market share.
- Learn about and learn how to optimize the BIM coordination process in construction projects of any size
- Learn how to implement advanced Revit techniques to better aid downstream construction processes (such as construction administration, RFI/change order control, quantity takeoff and estimating, 3D clash detection and coordination, and 4D time-based simulations)
- Learn how to use advanced Navisworks Manage tips and tricks for organizing and running an efficient BIM coordination process
- Learn how to use Navisworks software's 2D and 3D capabilities to aid in document control
