Event Description

Hello 505 BIMer’s!

505 BIM User’s Group March 2017 Monthly Meeting

Thursday March 9th at 11:30 at CNM's Advanced Technology Center room 108.

(Please park on south side of building off of Jefferson.  Enter West building near lobby, room 108 at end of hall.)

This month’s feature presentation is:

The Future of BIM Will Not Be BIM-and It's Coming Faster than You Think

This month’s presentation will be an Autodesk University 2016 class by speaker Bill Allen from EvolveLAB.

In this discussion, Bill will be so bold as to make predictions as to where he believes our industry is going in the next 3 to 10 years. With advancements in generative design, software algorithms, and robotic construction, our current processes are going to be changing quite a bit. We will see more and more done by computers and machines than we have ever seen. Rather than Building Information Modeling (BIM), we are going to see Building Information Optimization. In contrast, rather than manually drawing walls, doors, and columns for what we think is a good design, we will feed the computer "rules" instructing it to give us a building’s optimal footprint, structural load capacity, and thermal performance. Things that took months will be done in a day. What does this mean for you? How do you play a part in this changing process? Come to find out how. This is sure to be an exciting and enlightening discussion. This session features Revit and Autodesk Within. AIA Approved.

Bill Allen is the cofounder and partner of EvolveLAB BIM Consulting - www.evolvebim.com - He has over a decade of experience managing technology for buildings in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry for innovative firms. Allen has experience lecturing on staff as a college instructor for the University of Nebraska Omaha, and he regularly speaks at such conferences as Autodesk University and the Central States BIM Workshop. Allen served on the BIM Board of Omaha and the Central States Revit Workshop Board, and he is currently the co-organizer of the Rocky Mountain Building Information Society.

So please come and enjoy some lunch, network and learn about new ways to make your firm more efficient.

As always Lunch will be provided!

Also please forward this email to others you think would love to learn about BIM!

See you all there!
