Microsol Resources Presents: BIM Perspectives from Architectural, Engineering and Construction Firms & Legal Perspective of BIM
This event is tailored to look into the multi-disciplinary project team and their best practices for using building information modeling (BIM) as a basis for a collaborative design and construction process. We will hear from leading practitioners from architectural, engineering and construction perspective as well as how to navigate the legal aspects of BIM.
In recent years, designers in the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) community have embraced a new methodology using building information models as the basis for a collaborative design process to meet the challenges of today’s increasingly complex and demanding project requirements.
While the transition from manual drawing to CAD-based approaches improved the efficiency of the process, the transition to a BIM-centric design approach fundamentally changes the process and the AEC workflow by revolutionizing the way project information is shared, coordinated, and reviewed.
Typically, all of the disciplines and expertise required cannot be found in a single design firm. Rather, a project design team typically involves designers and experts from a number of different firms that all specialize in their own aspect of the project design. The precise workflow used by each multidisciplinary design team will vary based on the specific needs, requirements, and relationships between the team members.
Hear about the best practices and lessons learned from our panelists:
Katherine Dowdell, Architect/Principal and Mark Hershman, Mechanical Engineer/Principal, Blackney Hayes
Mark Purcell, Director, IMC Construction
Carl G. Roberts, Partner, Ballard Spahr LLP
They will be discussing the following topics and more:
•Discussing model coordination standards and collaboration practices and procedures that will be used to share models between the project teams
•Creating an integrated project model that incorporates the models produced by all disciplines to facilitate review, coordination, and interference checking
•Discussing the issues presented by BIM and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)
•Learning about the different ways of navigating the legal aspects of BIM from AIA and ConsensusDOCS standard BIM documents to create your own customized forms
