Building Information Modeling is no longer new to the construction industry, yet its integration with project workflows leaves a lot to be desired. There is often a lack of agreement on which stakeholders should include what data at each stage of the design process, causing a duplication in work between architects and contractors.

The technology exists for facility owners to streamline operations through as-built models, yet the vast majority don’t ask for BIM or don’t know how to use it. Many smaller firms and trades have yet to train their staff or adapt their organization to maximize value from BIM and still see it as a chore rather than an opportunity.

In this context, this workshop will focus on three core objectives:

 

  • Optimizing the expectations & responsibilities of project stakeholders to ensure data needed by all stakeholders is accessed through one consolidated BIM model
  • Furthering the integration of BIM at each stage of the project lifecycle through early design, the job site, facility management and operations
  • Identifying how organizational structures, staffing decisions & company strategies should adapt in light of BIM adoption
