How Contractors and CMs Are Leveraging
Project Data During Construction
Presented by Benjamin Crosby
CM-BIM, CCM, LEED AP BD+C, Director of VDC/BIM, Yates Construction
With models and a game plan in place, contractors can then leverage the BIM process during the construction phase. Learn how contractors and CMs are using BIM and other technologies for coordination, logistics, clash detection, 4D-scheduling and project administration. Learn how contractors are using tablets and kiosks on the jobsite for ready access to drawings and schedules, and how devices and communication technologies are applied to keep the project team involved for problem solving and change control.
In addition to the actual tools and benefits to contractors through increasing use of information technologies in the field, Benjamin will talk about the transitions project managers must make in their own management and administration processes, what new skills they should anticipate learning and how the jobsite communication and documentation process will evolve.
This 90-minute recorded presentation will help you:
- Learn the types of BIM tools available, including:
- Clash detection
- Coordination/collaboration of crews and subs
- 4D Scheduling, including cost loaded schedules
- Visualization / walkthru's
- Laser scanning existing conditions
- Temporary construction models - scaffolds, form work, cranes, etc.
- Integrate different systems and work more efficiently with subs
- Understand how the "cloud" applies to the field
- Identify real-time as-builts and punch-list applications
Learn the challenges facing contractors and construction managers, and the productivity benefits they reap from their BIM implementations.
Whether you're an owner, designer, contractor, construction manager or facility manager, this webinar will provide you and your team with a wealth of field-proven practices that will help you take your BIM participation to the next level.
