Best of BIM Roadmaps 2017-2018: A 6-Part Exclusive Training Program ($1,200 if ordered separately @$199 each. Election Day Special - Save 60%)

Since the first BIM Roadmap program in 2008 we have had plenty of positive feedback from those who employed BIM or started on a new BIM project. BIM brought about multiple benefits, including positive ROI, enhanced project collaboration, reduced (and sometimes eliminated) change orders and a project handover that provides the owner with facility documentation that makes sense.

BIM Technologies A-Z; Working with Data for the Non-BIM Participants

What technologies should be used by whom? In this session, construction technology pioneer John Jurewicz runs down the various tools and discusses who might use what, and the various complexities that one might plan for. Each tool essentially has input/output data, one or more specific functions, and certain minimum levels of skill to operate. John runs down the various mainstream programs and apps that BIM users have come to rely on, providing highlights and tips about each.

BIM Roadmap 2013 -- Facilitating the BIM Process: Contract Documents and Applying BIM in Traditional Delivery Methods

BIM implementation is more than a simple clause in a contract that says to use BIM. BIM implementation poses a complex new set of risk allocation and management challenges. Fortunately, the industry has caught up to the technology and several sets of BIM contract addendums and implementation guides have emerged from various organizations. Despite the new thinking required, BIM has been proven to be a better way of building, and is more likely to reduce claims and legal issues.

BIM Roadmap 2013: Owner Expectations NBIMS-US Standard Version 2 to Accelerate

BIM implementation has not expanded as rapidly as was projected five years ago. In 2008, in WPL Publishing's first annual BIM Roadmap series, early adapters of Building Information Modeling (BIM) recounted how its use was revolutionizing the way contractors, architects and owners do business — slashing project delivery time 25% (and sometimes more), cutting claims and change orders to near zero, saving millions of dollars in incorrectly specified materials and fixtures, slashing legal fees and reducing contractor liability ... and putting big smiles on clients' faces.

BIM - Multiple Models, Multiple Players: The Model Exchange Challenge

Handoff, 30-yard pass or fumble?  How is the data in the model made available to other members of the project team?  Is the data transferred, loaned, exported or shared?  What about keeping changes in sync?  Who is responsible for maintaining the data and for maintaining the model?  What happens when there are multiple models?  These are the questions and challenges facing BIM users everyday, and this session will help you understand the mechanics of multiple parties that must share and work with the various models.

BIM Models And Information Technology In The Field

Owners are the obvious, intended beneficiaries of completed projects. They expect to occupy the building, to enjoy a fully functional HVAC system along with other equipment and systems deployed on the project, and to be handed over a project "user manual" complete with all warranties, equipment operating instructions, maintenance requirements and any additional reference material needed to repair, replace or make upgrades in the future. As BIM continues its transition into the standard of care for project delivery, much has been made of BIM’s ability to support these owner expectations at close-out. Indeed, initiatives such as COBIE are aimed squarely at this issue. With both federal agencies and private owners increasingly requiring COBIE, or COBIE-esque close-out requirements, this session will explore some of the critical planning steps for owners and why it is necessary to start planning for the transition at the project concept stage, monitor progress during design and construction, and capture best practices upon close-out and turnover.

The Legal Risk of BIM-Real or Imagined? (Michael Vadaro)

The advent of BIM technology promises to improve the overall design systems for construction projects, and is likely to become the dominant system for project design delivery. However, as BIM begins to blur the allocations of responsibility developed over many generations, it has become necessary for architects, engineers, contractors, owners and developers to adapt their legal safeguards accordingly.
