LEVERAGING REVIT FOR PRELIMINARY DESIGN
Webcast Thursday September 26, 2013
11:00 AM PST
Hosted by: Dimitri Harvalias
This session will explore the potential for using Revit at the early stages of project development. Whether it’s a space planning exercise or form finding. Revit has all the tools you need to help you create graphics and real-time data that can be carried forward from concept to documentation.
Using area plans, schedules, masses and the conceptual modeling environment we’ll demonstrate how designers can use the varied tools in the Building Design Suites as part of their workflow to develop ideas while at the same time get valuable data to inform design decisions. Autodesk solutions offer endless opportunities via sketches or drawings, direct manipulation of masses or iterative, parametrically generated form finding.
EFFECTIVE BIM COLLABORATION BETWEEN OFFICES
11:00 AM PST
Hosted by: Rajesh Acharya
If you are unable to attend the Vancouver September BIMbc User Group, this session will cover what you need to know regarding remote desktops, BIM clouds, VPNs, Revit Server, MPLS, WAN Acceleration / Optimization and more.
Maintaining a Central Revit File maintains the effectiveness of BIM. Single office, multiple locations, multiple consultants, partnering firms…with the right communication solution, all of these scenarios can be addressed effectively. Find out which collaboration strategy fits your need.
HANDOVER IN A DIGITAL AGE: REALIZING THE POTENTIAL OF INFORMATION-RICH DELIVERABLES
11:00 AM PST
Hosted by: Geraldine Rayner
This session will consider what is currently delivered to Owners / Operators on handover of a new facility and demonstrate what is possible from enabling a digital process. Do we any longer go to the reference section of a library to look up information? With the current paper deliverable provided to Owners we are effectively confining them to an obsolete working practice. Learn how to provide additional value with a better, holistic, digital process.
Summit BIM Consulting will demonstrate how to enable the movement of digital information into the Facility Maintenance and Operations phase of facilities life with our Project Management and Facilities Management information capabilities. Learn how your models can continue to provide value to the building owner / operator.
