Building information modeling (BIM) is an intelligent, digital, model-based approach to design where a building is created using intelligent 3D computer models instead of separate, disconnected sets of 2D drawings. Although BIM is not a new concept or technology, its adoption has skyrocketed over the past decade. In this session, we’ll not only show you how the latest advancements in BIM improve user productivity, creativity, and collaboration, but also how BIM has enabled users to better address project safety requirements.
In this session, you will learn how:
- The new stair tool helps to design stair solutions that are safe and easy to navigate and meet all applicable national and local codes.
- Integrated collision detection features can reveal potential flaws and weaknesses in the design before construction begins.
- BIM automates documentation updates and eliminates potential errors or miscommunications that can occur when the documentation is not kept current.
- To improve the collaboration between architects and the rest of the consulting and engineering teams.
