AB3200 - A Dissection of the USACE BIM Requirements and PxP
As the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) continues on its path towards fully utilizing Building Information Modeling (BIM), ensuring the private sector understands what is required to deliver a BIM-based project is paramount to success. This class will discuss the collaborative development of the USACE BIM contract language, discuss requirements, list deliverables, and explain the USACE BIM project execution plan (PxP) template. The class will include plenty of time after the break for an extensive, interactive Q&A session with attendees and members from the USACE BIM/Advisory Committee.
CR2035 - Rebuilding Joplin Point by Point: McCarthy's Use of Model-Based Points for Layout and Quality Assurance
In this class, you will learn about model-based point layout and how this process plays an integral role in taking Building Information Modeling (BIM) to the field. The integration of Get The Point (GTP) software with Autodesk® Revit®, Autodesk® Navisworks®, and AutoCAD® software enables automated point creation in the model, reducing time in the CAD department. We will demonstrate a robotic GTP Total Station (RTS) to show various uses of the software. We will explain how we used this solution for layout and quality assurance/quality control of the Mercy Healthcare Replacement Hospital in Joplin, MO, to replace the tornado-demolished hospital. You will learn how the RTS was used to check structural beam deflection, floor flatness, slab opening locations, foundation wall installation, and more. You will also learn the process we used so that you can incorporate it into your own workflow.
CR1534 - Using a Design-Build Workflow with Autodesk® Building Design Suite
In a fast-paced design-build environment, the ability to streamline and accelerate processes necessary for optimized project delivery is directly proportional to the ability to minimize information loss. Using real-life examples, we will demonstrate how complex projects and their demanding schedules be improved from the use of Autodesk Building Design Suite. The class will cover a Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow from the very beginning of the design and construction process. We will discuss how early decisions have a lasting impact on the building’s performance and lifecycle cost, explore the process of program development and client engagement using advanced visualization techniques, and finally, delve into the process of document production and coordination. This BIM-enabled workflow determines a team’s ability to collaborate and deliver a product that will exceed the client’s expectations.
