The AEC industry is still undergoing a digital transformation, VDC and the design-build project delivery method are accelerating, and the path to net zero is ramping up. So, how well prepared are you to succeed in our industry's dynamic environment? Although VDC and design-build project delivery are not new concepts, they are flourishing because they maximize returns on investments in time, money, and effort while achieving sustainability. Still, many in the AEC community have not fully adopted 3D BIM and collaborative project delivery, which can greatly improve project quality and value while reducing the built world's environmental impact. Join this session to explore why the combination of VDC, design-build, and sustainable design and construction are the ideal lenses for projects. A panel of industry professionals will discuss VDC, the design-build project delivery system, sustainable strategies, innovative technologies, real-world projects, and best practices.
The architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry is quickly adopting everything virtual design and construction (VDC). In this time of change, the state of MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) coordination is in flux. The best practices for most efficiently utilizing BIM (Building Information Modeling) are still being defined. This class looks at 10 different strategies that you can use to improve the coordination process, but from the perspective of an MEP subcontractor. It is often believed that the coordinator drives speed and efficiency, but this presentation aims to show how a subcontractor can help drive added value. This class will focus on how you can use Revit software and Fabrication CADmep software to achieve a high level of detail (LOD) in the coordination process.
