L&L Chicago: Better BIM Workflows

Date(s): July 19, 2017

Time: 11:30 AM  CST - 1:00 PM  CST

Kimball Office Showroom 325 North Wells, Ste. 100 Chicago, IL 60654

Are you creating your design in 3D software and your construction documentation in 2D CAD? Or are you guilty of starting your design in an “easy to use” 3D modeling program for conceptual design and then having to recreate he project in anew in 3D BIM software? Architecture firms often use these inefficient software work-arounds in their design process as a crutch because they haven’t fully embraced streamlined BIM workflow.  These alternate methods, may get the job done, but ultimately result in lost revenue and time by causing you to duplicate work, and a process that complicates the integration of mechanical and structural systems during the design phases. And, none of these methods enables clients to see and understand the project in full 3D with actual material choices all the way through the process.
At this session you will learn:
1. How to incorporate a BIM workflow throughout the design and construction process, creating a truly collaborative approach between architects, construction and engineer consultants, and clients.
2. The benefits of utilizing live 3D walk-throughs with clients, communicating the high level of modeling and detail in the design, and addressing design changes early, saving both time and money.
3. How to easily perform real-time edits of a building information model.
4. How to leverage the model to output construction documents without having show less.
