Group Registration

How can we register a group of people attending the event from a single location and working with the same organization?

One person from the organization needs to register for each location.

  • At the time of the presentation, the webinar facilitator will ask each designated registrant of each group to record the roll call of those in attendance.

Our webinar provider will register each attendance with AIA National; however the roll call list needs to include each attendee's --

  1. first and last name,
  2. email address,
  3. AIA Number and
  4. Phone number is optional. The webinar provider may need to contact them if they encounter any problems with registration or email address.

The designated registrant needs to email the roll call list within 24 hours to our webinar provider --whose email address will be given at the end of the session.

e-SPECS for Revit - A Small Firm Perspective | CSI Learning Video

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Apr 7, 2016 6:39:00 AM

 

The CSI BIM Practice Group published this Revit | e-SPECS learning-video (below) defining a Small Firm's Perspective | Implementing e-SPECS Specifications authoring software. e-SPECS automates the creation of the specifications by linking directly to a project's Revit model.

In April 2012, Bradley announced that the Bradley Revit Family Library Joins E-Specs Integrated Specifications Program. Bradley's partnership became effective in June 2012.

--- Bradley BIM e-SPECS for Revit Begins 5th Year Commitment | 2016 ---

e-SPECS for Revit automates the process of creating specification manuals integrated with all Autodesk Revit-based applications. e-SPECS for Revit includes the e-SPECS Binding Manager to link Revit families to your master guide specs automatically including and filtering the sections based on the families and parameters in the BIM Model.

AIA Document E203 Legalese | 2013 BIM - Digital Data Exhibit Updates

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 5, 2014 6:58:22 AM

Attorney, Krista Hallberg Kapp, Partner at the Construction Law Practice- Laurie & Brennan, LLP provides a summary of AIA 2013 BIM - Digital Data Exhibit Updates

The What, When and How of the 2013 AIA Digital Practice Documents

In 2013, The American Institute of Architects (“AIA”) released a series of contract forms to facilitate owners’ and design and construction professionals’ transmittal and use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and digital data on a construction project.

This article provides owners and design and construction professionals with a summary of the new contract forms and when and how to utilize them.

Here are excerpts from Ms Kapp's article; where she provides the legalese of these updates

The What, When and How of the 2013 AIA Digital Practice Documents

Excerpts:

AIA Document E203 – 2013 Building Information Modeling and Digital Data Exhibit

Article 1 of the E203 provides project participants with a uniform set of definitions to be used for the development of the Protocol.

Article 2 of the E203 provides that the transmitter of digital data warrants to the receiver that the transmitter is the copyright owner of such digital data.

Article 3 of the E203 requires project participants to anticipate and list the different types of digital data that will be used by the parties.

Article 4 of the E203 provides for the establishment of a modeling Protocol if the parties agree to utilize BIM at a project.

AIA Document G201-2013-Project Digital Data Protocol Form and AIA Document G202-2013 Project Building Information Modeling Protocol Form

AIA Document G201-2013-Project Digital Data Protocol Form

Unlike the E203 that simply sets forth the parties’ intent to agree on a digital data Protocol, the G201 actually sets up the Protocol that will govern the parties’ use of digital data. The G201 is not a contract document and can be modified during the course of the project easily, without the need to modify each of the project participants’ contracts as circumstances on the project change.

AIA Document G202-2013-Project Building Modeling Protocol Form

Article 2 of the G202 introduces the term LOD or Level of Development to assist project participants in their development of a BIM Protocol. The LOD provisions set forth in the G202 provide for and define the specific minimum contents of the BIM at certain project milestones.

In mid-2008, The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) released one of first BIM protocol guidelines; with AGC's ConsensusDocs 301 BIM Addendum.

In early 2009, The American Institute of Architects released their AIA document "E202–2008 BIM Protocol".

The BIM process continues its growth and expanded role for designing and constructing buildings; via association's contractual documents and better defined national standards.
