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.

What Past Participants Say:

We use BIM in our business but your session brought out information that was helpful to us. I will attend another webinar because BIM is the future in our business. I especially found it very good that you provided links to where we could find additional information on the subject. That is invaluable as time passes.

However, some firms are still on the fence about BIM, while others have one foot in but are not realizing full value of BIM. Much of this hesitance on BIM use centers around the nature of the content of a BIM model. There is a perception that the model spits out a bucket of mysterious bits and bytes requiring specialized skills and /or tools to work with. It does not have to be this way.

This special BIM Roadmap on-demand training series addresses these issues from the standpoint of data that goes into a model and/or is otherwise available from the model to be used by the project participants. This series will help you understand more about the "data" as well as help you learn more about practical aspects of BIM and overcome existing stumbling blocks. This includes integrating BIM data with standard construction practices, exploring how to engage architects and engineers more fully, addressing projects' documentation handover for owners, and a walk through of the new form of contract standard that did not exist seven years ago. Gather your team together for this unique interactive webinar series to take your BIM initiative to the next level.

The 6-Part On-Demand Training Series Includes:
Session I.Building Information: Using Data to Leverage Design, Construction & Facilities O&M
Session II.Productivity Benefits of BIM: How Public and Private Owners are Driving the Industry
Session III.How Contractors and CMs are Leveraging Project Data During Construction
Session IV.Owner and Designer Strategies for BIM Deployment
Session V.BIM Technologies A-Z; Working with Data for the Non-BIM Participant 
Session VI.Legal Risk of BIM -- Real or Imagined


Special Bonus Offer - Best Value!
Your order for this On-Demand Series Includes an Ebook Copy of Award-Winning BIG BIM 4.0 by Finith Jernigan

• A free ebook copy of BIG BIM 4.0:  The sequel to the award-winning BIG BIM - little bim, this 468-page book lays out a systematic approach to establishing a BIG-BIM ecosystem and provides step-by-step examples of how to successfully use BIM to improve our entire built environment—buildings, bridges, roads, energy systems, water services, planes, trains, automobiles or anything we build. But there are many construction industry examples included because much of our energy and water use occurs in our buildings. Included are case study examples and workbook activities to help you understand the issues and optimize your application of BIM.

Session I. 

Building Information: Using Data to Leverage Design, Construction and Facilities O&M

Presented by Michael Tardif, AIA, LEED AP, Principal & Managing Partner, Building Informatics

Architects, engineers and contractors live in a model-centric world. Building owners live in an information-centric world. Most are not yet ready to manage “live” building information models, but many are ready to manage the rich data set of information that can be obtained from models. This recorded session explores the concept of "data" throughout the entire project life cycle and explains how to deliver building information to owners in a format they can actually use.


Whether you're an owner, designer, contractor, construction manager or facility manager, this webinar will provide you and your team with a wealth of field-proven practices that will help you take your BIM participation to the next level.

Session II. 

Productivity Benefits of BIM: How Public and Private Owners Are Driving the Industry

Presented by Finith Jernigan, Author of: BIG BIM, little bim and BIG BIM 4.0

Join Finith as he recaps the value proposition of BIM and how it has evolved since the book was first published in 2007, transforming itself into an indispensable tool not just for the design team, but for contractors and CMs, and as an asset management tool for owners. BIM is also transforming the way we do business, enabling more fluid design-build delivery, and construction collaboration resulting in higher quality and safer projects.  Join Finith as he builds on the knowledge of his award-winning books, including:

  • Four-phase framework for integrating BIM into existing practice
  • Seven steps to guide your way
  • Day-to-day process and expectations, including COBIE
  • Future direction 


In addition, Finith reviews the most common benefits of BIM: improved code compliance checking, better life safety and energy efficiency design, reduced approval cycles, increased pre-fabrication, less crowded and safer worksites, reduced waste and reduced change orders. 

  • Recent progress in standards and cooperation to facilitate increased BIM usage
  • How BIM changes the workflow and management processes
  • Benefits to owners: an improved product and enhanced facilities management

Session III. 

Aligning BIM Data to Standard Practices During Construction

Presented by Benjamin Crosby, CM-BIM, CCM, LEED AP BD+C, Director of VDC/BIM, Yates Construction

BIM is more than a design and coordination software, it is multiple sets of data combined with a process of communication. With BIM models and a game plan in place, contractors can then leverage project data during the construction phase. Learn how contractors and CMs are using BIM technologies for coordination, logistics, clash detection, temporary construction design, 4D-scheduling, 5D-estimating, project administration and more.


In addition to the actual tools and benefits to contractors through increased use of information technologies in the field, Crosby will discuss the cultural shifts demanded by BIM, what transitions project managers must make in their own management and administrative processes, what new skills they should anticipate learning and how the job site communication and documentation process will evolve, including:


  • Understand the importance of the 5 VDC/BIM implementation levels
  • Learn how to integrate BIM-based communication into design development
  • Gain insight into Owner involvement to improve project productivity and reduce cost
  • Discover how the Owners/Designers/Constructors can interface better through BIM
  • Avoid communication mistakes and reach compromise and collaboration

Whether you're an owner, designer, contractor, construction manager or facility manager, this webinar will provide you and your team with a wealth of field-proven practices that will help you take your BIM participation to the next level.

Session IV. 

Owner & Designer Strategies for BIM Deployment

Presented by Dr. Ralph Kreider, Digital Facility Integrator, & Robert Fraga, FCMAA, AIA, MBP (McDonough Bolyard Peck)

Many of us are familiar with certain aspects of BIM, such as the benefits of improved coordination and communication, as well as the efficiency associated with 3D design. But what other benefits are there and how do we insure these are incorporated into the project delivery program?


Since owners are ultimately the prime beneficiary of BIM, and since the A/Es and CMs they select are charged with setting the foundation for BIM implementation, it is important that both be fully conversant with the strategies and tools available to optimize BIM use and insure its mission that the project is fulfilled. Join us for this eye-opening recorded webinar that will discuss the tools and strategies with clear direction to get you started, including:

  • Learn how BIM will be used
  • Become familiar BIM data workflows
  • Review BIM Implementation guides
  • Examine construction documents and BIM addendums
  • Understand the importance of commissioning

Listen in on this webinar and learn about all the organization tools available to help insure that you gain the full value of BIM on your projects.

Session V. 

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

Presented by John Jurewicz, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, General Manager, VDC, Walbrige

So exactly what technologies should the various participants in the construction effort be using? An owner or architect could start with something as simple as Google earth and sketch up to plan the location of a structure. The commencement of a BIM model might start with software such as Autocad's Revit or Bentley's. Along the way, different parties will want to access the data in the BIM model for estimating, coordination, engineering calculations, fabrication, scheduling, and finally, facilities management. So 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 reviews the various mainstream programs and apps that BIM users have come to rely on, providing highlights and tips about each, including:

  • Planning and design
  • Estimating & extracting from models
  • Fabrication, 3D printing
  • Scheduling, 4D scheduling & cost loading
  • Coordination, beyond crash optimizing
  • BIM model management & storage techniques
  • Facilities management and maintenance programs such as Cobie
  • Life safety systems and security

Session VI. 

Legal Risk of BIM: Real or Imagined

Presented by Brian P. Clifford, Partner, Construction Law group, Faegre Baker Daniels LLP

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

The full scope of BIM's legal ramifications may take years to fully comprehend, but the most anticipated potential liabilities are addressed during this 90-minute training program, including issues surrounding intellectual property and ownership interests and design and construction control concerns.
