CI member David Aucoin of PES Engineers and co-chair of CI's BIM Council will be presenting this week at the 2017 Fall BIM Forum in Dallas, TX. David will speak about Building a Virtual Bridge from Design to Construction.


Below is a description of the presentation:


Structural engineers possess a wealth of knowledge beyond that which can be conveyed in traditional drawings and design intent models.  By embracing the BIM process and forging strong relationships with other members of the project team, it has been possible to contribute more value and earn more business.  We will walk through several brief case studies in which we were contracted to model structure beyond standard design BIM to identify constructability issues before they arise in the field.  We will offer strategies for team organization and submittal sequencing to facilitate effective model coordination.  Our presentation will culminate in a roundtable discussion to help the audience identify opportunities for delivering more value to clients applying some of the lessons shared throughout the day.
