BIMStorm: What is Next for AEC and Owners
Owners have been leading the charge in adopting BIM and evangelizing Game Changing Innovation for over 20 years. Productivity, Cost Savings, and Optimizing Life Cycle Facility Management are hallmarks of Owners Focus. Join us to hear case studies, lessons learned and best practices.
Forward looking owners are driving change in the AEC industry. A pattern has emerged that owners are starting to ask for more value and efficiency from the industry. The opportunity for forward looking stakeholders is to generate value for owners. Hear first hand what the state of the industry is and what owners are looking for. A high level vision will be presented as well as specific examples of using advanced tools to support the needs of owners.
How does an Owner develop and implement an effective Model-based coordination and constructability review strategy with a means of validating results throughout design and construction? This session will highlight how the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in conjunction with industry leaders works collaboratively through the USACE/Industry BIM and CIM Consortia (Consortia) to develop a consensus-based approach to defining processes and deliverables that are fair, reasonable, and practical to all project stakeholders.
The Consortia held several workshops to determine how to qualify the quality of model-based coordination and constructability. The outcome was an Interference Management (3D Coordination) Model Use involving contract language, predefined software templates, and data exports denoting amount and types of interdisciplinary model element conflicts. Additionally, a spreadsheet deliverable is required to allow data review and validation of the Model Use implementation. The Consortia debated various techniques and common practices for performing the interference management and coordination process before striking the right balance between achieving the desired outcome without being too prescriptive. Attendees will gain knowledge of the why and how behind the development and implementation, common pitfalls and metrics to avoid that give a false sense of quality, and how to identify trends from report data.
