Revit-BIM Manages Construction Site Assets and Safety

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jun 3, 2016 8:00:00 AM

Several Autodesk University 2014 classes featured contractors sharing their use of BIM to Manage the Construction Site Assets & Safety and BIM for Constructing the Building.

The world’s leading contractors have completely DIGITAL construction sites. The larger the project, the more dependent they are on BIM and digital technologies.

This includes oil & gas exploration and mining; which are long-term construction sites.

Contractors use BIM to Manage the Daily & Weekly Positioning of Construction Site Assets. These models and respective paperwork are reviewed weekly by Site Safety Engineers & submitted to governing agencies.

Here are a few KEY business points on how BIM-based Contractors use BIM to

  1. create REPEAT client business

  2. engage their successful Team Members on future projects,

  3. prefabricate MEP systems and room configurations,

  4. plan & phase construction project processes, plan and improve safety,

  5. track, manage & financially plan construction site assets,

  6. order and install their proven Building Product Manufacturers (Supply Chain)

Daniel Hughes Teaching Advanced Revit Family Class | UW-Milwaukee School of Architecture

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Oct 22, 2012 5:48:04 AM

Daniel Hughes, Bradley Corporation BIM Strategist will be co-teaching an Advanced Revit Family Class at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee - School of Architecture and Urban Design on November 16th.

Dan Bayer, Director of Virtual Construction for Miron Construction (Neenah WI) invited me to co-teach a Revit Family class with him for the UWM Architectural Program students. We will use the standards, procedures and Revit models developed for the Bradley Revit Family Library (1000 families); for teaching our Revit Family Class."

Professional History

"Over the last decade, I've

  • consulted with Dan Bayer (then CAD Manager) as his Autodesk software installation & training consultant,
  • served with him in the Autodesk Reseller/Consultant Channel and
  • collaborated with him as my firm's BIM Manager; for projects where Miron Construction served as our BIM-based General Contractor."

Scope of Class

We'll teach (hands-on) the technical aspects (Best Practices) of building Revit families.

Our class will share the collaboration value; when designer, contractor and manufacturer are partnered from design through construction to provide the shared BIM benefits realized by a facility owner to manage the facility.
