Even with a fully coordinated Autodesk Revit model of every discipline, architectural beauty comes at the cost of a challenging construction phase. In this class, you will learn how coordination on the Yale School of Management was managed using Autodesk Navisworks software in conjunction with fabrication-quality modeling. We will explore rule-based clash detection will be explored as a primary evaluation and visualization method for finding coordination problems and developing real-time solutions in the intelligent model. You will leave the class with a clear understanding of how to best integrate and use clash detection to coordinate a building of any level of complexity.
- Establish clash detection tolerances in a manner that minimizes contractor claims in the field and reduces project risk
- Engage your design firm in a more proactive BIM workflow
- Coordinate the MEP systems, structures, and architecture in an architecturally complex building
- Assess the benefits and the pitfalls of using Building Information Modeling (BIM) at each phase of the project
