Revit Implementation Puzzle - 5 Basic Planned Investments

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jul 12, 2017 6:20:00 AM

Assembling your Revit Implementation Puzzle, requires a transition of all the "pieces"; your organization, staff, technologies, project workflows, consultants and clients from CAD-based processes to your future BIM-based processes.

Based on 25 years of transitioning hundreds of design, construction and facility owner organizations -- these are the 5 typical investment costs; for your consideration.

To be clear - the Revit transition will change how all of the "pieces" connect and create the new "BIM-process picture" for your organization.

These will be upfront and ongoing investment costs. However, the costs are 'time and financial investments'; that can be planned within your budgets and billing processes. If properly implemented, documented and managed; they should provide a Return-On-Invest (ROI) from your BIM transition efforts.

For now, I've listed them below; many times including a link to a related article. Over time; I'll fill in the blanks with more detailed articles; that best explain how these made "the list" from my 10+ years of client Revit implementation experiences.

[ Low-Cost Revit Implementation Strategy That Wins Business ]

1 ) Hire a Revit Implementation 'Consultant'

A consultant should deliver a full assessment of your current staff, technologies, consultants, document distribution, graphic standards, and workflow processes. The 'consultant' could be an architect, engineer or contractor; that has a long, successful experience with a variety of organizational Revit implementations.

This person and/or organization should prescribe & deliver to your organization a roll-out recommendation with implementation options, schedule and budget. Review their Phased-In Plan; which typically involves Pilot Projects to clarify the Proof of Processes, specific to your organization. 

Your most effective method to quickly succeed, is to hire someone;,who can help you design your "Revit Road Map" --prior to starting the Revit implementation journey.

2) Revit Software & Computer Systems\Networks:

The Revit software, computer systems & network will need to be better and faster; than the typical CAD workstations. The Revit project files will be larger; while Revit supports the benefit of several people simultaneously, accessing the same project file.

Revit 2016 New Features List \ Videos-Downloads-System Requirements ]

 

3) Revit Training and Continued Education

Revit's functionality and processes are far different than AutoCAD. Training will be required; to learn both the new software and the valuable productivity process enhancements. Designing a custom learning program; will expedite your Revit implementation plan; that is specific to your firm's staff and projects. You'll also improve your organization's Return-On-Investment by rolling out Revit faster, on more projects.

Keys to Designing Your Successful Revit 101 Basic Training ]

 

4) BIM Manager Role and Position

How do you prepare for the BIM Manager role and position in your organization? Do you hire from outside your firm or train from within? The BIM Manager responsibilities far exceed the role of a CAD Manager --which many times; was associated with managing project graphic standards, file organization and training.

Define BIM Manager Roles | Key to Shaping Compensation Programs ]

 

5) Revit (Family) Building Product Content Library - Standards

Assembling and managing a Revit Library of reliable building product content for your projects --will determine the efficiency of your Revit projects. There are hundreds of building product manufacturers; that provide free, pre-built Revit content (windows, fixtures, walls) --where almost none existed 10 years ago.

Key Costs for Building Revit Families ]

As these are NOT 'One and Done' investments; they need to be incorporated into every annual sales, business, marketing, education, management budget. BIM Means Business.

Daniel Hughes | BIM Strategist: These have proven to be the most consistent Revit investments; that organizations have embedded into their annual budgets. This "top 5" list has remained consistent for more than 10 years; they belong in your annual budget and business plans.

Taking the Mystery Out of BIM | AGC CM-BIM Classes

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jun 28, 2017 6:42:00 AM

Transitioning your design, engineering, and construction processes from CAD to BIM processes - requires a BIM Implementation Plan; that budgets for technology and process training.

For those that have implemented BIM; this is an obvious, logical process for success.

--- Revit Implementation Puzzle – 5 Basic Planned Investments ---

However; for newcomers to the BIM process -- its hard to ask the planning questions when you either don't know the questions to ask OR why you are asking those questions.

A series of BIM Prep classes may be the answer. During my Baltimore visit with a prominent construction company's BIM\VDC Manager, he described a series of classes; that has been helpful to educate owners on 4 topic areas of asking for BIM on their projects.

Nationally, he's seen design and engineering principals attend these same classes; as a prerequisite to 'road mapping' BIM Process Initiatives within their firms.

I've highlighted these classes during my national BIM education classes and workshops. Attending owners, designers and contractors have provided their positive experiences from attending these classes.

Here's the AGC page with links to the Original CM-BIM Candidate Guide and the Revised CM-BIM Candidate Guide.

AGC Certificate of Management — Building Information Modeling Page

It also includes links to the Exam Calendar, Application Form, Retake Form, Renewal Form and Testing Center Locations. The Original Guide provides the course and unit descriptions that are outlined below.

The AGC Certificate of Management-Building Information Modeling (CM-BIM) is an assessment-based certificate credential; that denotes knowledge and understanding of concepts related to BIM adoption, practice and process transformation outlined in the AGC BIM Education Program. Successful candidates will carry the CM-BIM designation.

Dodge Data + Analytics | Managing Risk in the Construction Industry

Impact of Using BIM on Risk

Research by Dodge Data & Analytics has repeatedly demonstrated that use of BIM reduces rework, reduces RFIs and has a positive impact on project cost and schedule, especially when it facilitates the transfer of reliable project information between team members.

Owners, GCs and trade contractors who use BIM or see BIM used on their projects were asked if they agree that the use of BIM decreases risk on projects. In general, over half of respondents agree that BIM reduces risk on their projects.

However, approximately one quarter of owners and one third of contractors also remain neutral on the impact of BIM on risk. Owners currently are most likely to report that using BIM reduces risk. Two thirds of owners (67%) agree that BIM decreases risk on their projects, compared with 57% of GCs and 54% of trade contractors.

Previous SmartMarket Reports have demonstrated owner condence in the impact of BIM on their projects, including the 2015 Measuring the Impact of BIM on Complex Buildings SmartMarket Report.


The SmartMarket surveys always include Case Studies from their findings. Here's an excerpt from a BIM-related Case Study within this report: 

Enhancing Knowledge and Communication (Case Study)

A particular risk identified in the project analysis was the location of the architect and a number of the design team’s engineering consultants outside the region.

To ensure this posed no disadvantage, Gilbane implemented a design assist strategy, retaining a structural and historical consultant in New York to enable all members of the design team to function as effectively as if they themselves worked in the city. Extensive use of BIM facilitated the team’s communication.

What is the Best Timeline for Upgrading Revit Software

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 24, 2017 10:40:00 AM

 

What is the Best Timeline for Upgrading Revit Software?

Below is a brief 10-point list of BIM-Revit Manager recommendations I've found and have provided to BIM Managers during their training  process.

Consider these points; prior to upgrading Revit software.

  1. "How will a Revit product upgrade affect your project's current timelines and team members?"

  2. If a project's print or submittal milestone date is looming in the next 30-60 days, consider waiting to upgrade; especially for larger project teams.

  3. When the project is long term and does not have an immediate print/submittal milestone; the PM/PA should consult and discuss the impact of a software upgrade and the potential switch date with his/her entire team (design, engineering, contractor).

  4. Based on software subscription dates; Autodesk software is updated each March-April. Knowing this, BIM Managers will "look out" 4-6 months from March to review new incoming projects; that may be acceptable for the next Revit version. 

  5. During this time, BIM Managers should review, What current or future projects should be considered for upgrade or will remain on their current version of software?

  6. Consider having the  BIM-Revit Management Team actively participate with Autodesk's Beta software programs. They can be helpful to "kicking the tires" early using test equipment to anticipate any training, equipment or process changes to the project team(s).

  7. IT & Project Teams may choose to wait until the first service pack is issued before rolling out a new release. Re-patching (updating) an installed release is disruptive.

  8. The First Customer Shipment(FCS) version is often used to do major testing of deployment images, upgraded Revit standards, project testing, equipment upgrades, 3rd party applications and creating training update materials.

  9. Revit success is highly dependent on processes. Review new Revit features against processes; as these need to be integrated into the update training and revising the firm's process standards.

  10. Many firms use a similar 'pilot project' process; that started their use of Revit within the firm. Only now, the pilot project is used to roll out and update the software firm wide.


The recommendations and suggestions are based on technically supporting and consulting the Revit upgrade process with hundreds of Revit-based design firms since 2002.

Special thanks to the hundreds of clients using Revit; that I meet annually at my educational speaking events, Bradley plant tours and through our Bradley BIM Customer Service Portal.

We appreciate their enthusiasm to share tips on their firms' winning processes listed above.

How to Add Bradley Product Revit Material Catalogs to Project

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 17, 2017 4:40:00 PM

Bradley has created custom Revit Material Catalogs for all materials specific for Bradley products.

Bradley Revit Material Catalogs can be downloaded for

A link to Bradley Revit Materials is found on the Bradley Bradley BIM-Revit Library Page in the right margin.

    

All materials use a naming convention that is consistent with materials already supplied in Revit.

Bradley Revit Material Catalogs are unique as material definitions are attached to individual "Chips" in a Revit Project file (*.rvt) file (shown above).

A Revit user can copy a material chip(s) from the Material Project File and paste it into their Revit Project File. When the chip is pasted into their project; it carries the material definition into the project. Just delete the chip and the material definition remains in the project.

  1. find and select the Bradley product family in the project,
  2. select the material parameter in the Property Browser and
  3. select the added Bradley Material in the project Material Browser dialogue box.

This copy-paste process avoids using  the 'Transfer Project Standards' dialogue box; that would transfer ALL the materials into the client Revit project. This keeps the project file smaller; while keeping the Project Material Library clean from unwanted \ unused materials.

When you download our Material Catalogs, you will receive them as separate .zip files.

Inside the downloaded .zip files  is a Revit Material Project file (*.rvt ) and the corresponding material .jpg image files; that are Bradley materials. The material .jpg files are required for the Revit rendering process.

  1. Copy all the .jpg image files into a Bradley folder in your firm's Manufacturer Material Library folder.  
  2. Add this new folder to the 'folder search path' that Revit Rendering searches to find material image files.
  3. In the Revit Options Dialogue box, select Rendering tab in the left margin.
  4. Select the 'plus + symbol' to add the new directory.
  5. The icon with dots " ...  "appears in the right.
  6. Select the dots to browse to and select the Bradley material folder that was added.
  7. Revit will now automatically search this folder list for materials, when rendering a view.

3-in-1 Handwashing Systems Shrink Accessible Toilet Room SqFt–Revit

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 1, 2017 11:10:35 AM

What if Bradley could help you meet toilet room ADA design requirements; while reducing your clients' toilet room space (SqFt) and construction costs? 

A Bradley WashBar 3-in-1 handwashing system provides designers with a unique accessibility product solution that delivers a more efficient, compact ADA compliant toilet room.

Bradley, the leaders in all-in-one technology, has scaled down the delivery of soap, water and hand drying via the exclusive Verge® with WashBar™ technology.

Franchise Client: "We realize the Bradley WashBar could significantly reduce our ADA toilet room spaces. The construction cost savings easily pay for the WashBar; while providing our franchises with the option to reallocate the 'saved space' to retail and\or customer seating space." 

Bradley centralizes the core handwashing components (water, soap, & dryer) to the wash basin. This provides designers with the opportunity to significantly reduce the toilet room footprint or square footage.

Two design options emerged for the franchise;

  • Reducing toilet room space allowed the franchise to reduce the respective construction costs. 
  • The new available space could be allocated to both retail and customer seating space.

 Bradley 3-in-1 (All-in-One) touchless handwashing systems

  1. meet accessibility codes,
  2. reduce the owners' square footage & construction costs,
  3. reduce the owners' risks associated with slippery, wet floors,
  4. reduce the owners' building management costs for water, paper towel usage and maintenance,
  5. provide a pretty cool visually-appealing, technologically-savvy handwashing product.

The Verge with the patented WashBar Technology provides a completely touchless handwashing experience in a sleek and engaging design.
