Smart Model Transfer: Collaboration to Reduce Schedule and Cost [T9]

Transfer of digital models from the engineer to the fabricator is not a new concept. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is intended to drive process change. We need to shift our collective focus from transferring models toward process improvement and collaboration. The 2016 CISC Code of Standard Practice has been re-written to provide the ground rules for project teams to work collaboratively within the BIM environment. Is your company benefiting from BIM enabling technology to its full potential? This presentation team will share how their international BIM award winning process and workflow improvements enabled the project team to openly share project data, automate connection detailing, simMarplify the approval process, progressively release fabrication work packages, participate pro-actively in clash detection, and deliver complete steel design and fabrication with 0 RFI's, minimal engineering drawings and no review of printed shop drawings.

Intended Audience: Engineers, Fabricators, Erectors, Detailers
Track: Technology
