Legal BIM

BIM in all its glory provides benefits to our industry 100 fold. Unfortunately not everyone has cracked the legal aspects of using a BIM in a collaborative environment with todays current delivery systems. Design Build, CMaR and RFP's for construction are baby steps to Integrated Practice and a true collaborative environment using BIM. Michael J. Cremonese and Chad A. Wissinger have written an article at…

Linking process document to the BIM

Wondering what firms are doing that are getting their feet wet with BIM when it comes to documenting the process of design and construction.

Revit Sites

So I am thinking of creating a presentation about Revit Site Tools. I did a quick presentation in December about the large site for the new APS Sports Complex I am working on. This exercise has allowed me to become very familiar with Revit's site tools and also in creating a process of what not to do and what to do when working with a site.

My questions to everyone are;

We had another great meeting this month. We had 4 firms step up and present how their firms are using the latest technology and processes to create BIM.

Miller Bonded presented how, with the use of AutoCAD MEP, CAD Duct, and Navisworks they collaborate with the contractor and designers to create an accurate model of the future or existing facility. The models provide accurate coordination, phasing and cost for everyone working on the facility. Miller Bonded will present in February a… Continue

There has been such a strong interest and commitment from the AEC industry, including our sponsors (The CAD Store, Corbins Electric, ITT Technical Institute and Autodesk) who I don't think would have made it possilbe for this long. This new site or "Social Network" is intended for the members of the 505 BIM User's Group to basically "talk", collaborate,… Continue
