information modeling (BIM) is big in architecture and engineering, but it is
rapidly gaining mainstream traction in the construction sector and even owners
are getting into the game. Autodesk is sponsoring a Web-based town hall panel
discussion Nov. 12 for owners and those in the construction industry - and
anyone who works with them - to understand how BIM is influencing the entire
building lifecycle process.
from BIM industry experts, visionaries and practitioners about what BIM means
for general contractors, others in the construction industry, as well as for
owners. Find out what BIM is (and isn’t), what the pros and cons are, what
considerations need to be taken into account before transitioning to BIM, who
is doing it, and why.
include Paul Teicholz, founder of the Center for
Integrated Facility Engineering at Stanford University; Dan
Klancnik, virtual construction and building information modeling
at Walsh Construction - Archer Western Contractor; and Rodd
Merchant, P.E., LEED AP, vice president of JE Dunn.
The Contractor Can Learn: For general contractors, specialty
contractors and others in the construction industry, find out how the BIM
process can support team integration from design through construction and how a
building model can be used for construction planning and scheduling. Understand
how the model needed by the contractor differs from that generated by the
architect and what the primary barriers are to adopting full use of BIM by the
The Architect And Engineers Can Learn: For architects and
engineers, learn about the downstream use of models, and the needs and
considerations of those who will be using them. Gain a better understanding of
how your design fit in the building lifecycle and the data that needs to be
captured in the model to meet the requirements of others in the ecosystem.
