Event Description

Hello 505 BIMer’s!

Please join us for our,

505 BIM User’s Group November 2016 Monthly Meeting

Thursday November 10 at 11:30 at CNM's Advanced Technology Center room 133

(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:

BIM/VDC - Exploring Use Cases with Jonathan Widney, founder of Naviswork

Jonathan is the President of Solibri LLC, the US Headquarters for the Helsinki, Finland software developer (now a Nemetschek company). Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Solibri provides solutions for automating the process of 3D model checking for many BIM Use Cases, including QA/QC, spatial validation, code compliance, LoD, COBie, and Construction Site Safety (and more). 


Over the past 25 years Jonathan has been developing markets in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and since 2001 the Americas for major Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Digital Technology developers. 


Prior to establishing Solibri LLC (2008), Jonathan founded NavisWorks, Inc. (2001), the US subsidiary of NavisWorks UK Ltd., which was subsequently purchased by Autodesk, Inc. (2007).


Jonathan has been involved with BIM (Building Information Modeling) from its inception and has co-authored several BIM courses for the Associated General Contractors of America (BIM Education Program). 


Jonathan will dive into clash detection, providing examples of where BIM is going and how Solibri expands the user's ability to keep pace.  He will touch on:

  1. Clash Detection and Clash Management (collaboration, communicating, and reporting)
  2. Site Safety and Site Logistics – how models can be used for 2/4 week ‘look aheads’ for site activity and access.
  3. Compliance in areas like ADA
  4. Operations in scenarios such as COBie (so they can see how models and associated data are used downstream)

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!


Bruce Gunderson

505 BIM User’s Group President
