McGraw-Hill Construction Business Value of BIM in Australia and New Zealand

This research study focuses primarily on BIM users in Australia and New Zealand and it shows that firms in these countries, though relatively new to the use of BIM, recognize its value and are planning to deepen their BIM investments. In fact, 51% of firms are engaged with BIM on more than 30% of their projects today, and this number is expected to increase dramatically in the next two years.

I authored an article for the Australian design+construction website; Sourceable.net --that highlights the BIM Library content investment for BIM Implementation.

Sourceable.net (Australia) Article

View Complete Article: Pre-built Manufacturer BIM Content Can Deliver Savings

Excerpt: Leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software packages such as Autodesk Revit, Bentley Microstation, Graphisoft ArchiCAD and Nemetschek Vectorworks provide libraries of free generic BIM content in their respective BIM file formats.

However; without supporting Building Product Manufacturers' (BPM) BIM content, designers will be limited by cost and time to produce construction documents with their BIM software.

Free Pre-built Building Product Manufacturers' BIM content may also increase BIM file sharing between disciplines -- as the model building costs are covered by the BPM.

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.

ASPE Phoenix – How BIM Changes Everything | Revit Family Secrets - April 18

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Mar 31, 2014 10:45:18 AM

Join Bradley BIM at The ASPE Phoenix AZ Chapter - BIM Technical\Educational Seminar | BIM for the Plumbing Engineer on Friday, April 18, 2014 from 12:00 - 3:00pm.

The Bradley BIM 3-hour educational seminar is taught in two- presentation sessions; with a short intermission between sessions.

Session #1 - How BIM Changes Everything

The Building Information Modeling (BIM) process offers multiple opportunities to automate and coordinate the construction documents and specifications, using a virtual 3D facility model.

BIM authoring software (Revit, Bentley, ArchiCAD, Vectorworks) allow multiple users (disciplines) to work simultaneously in the facility model file during the construction + design processes. This collaborative workflow uses new tools for project programming & phasing, creating specifications & cost estimates, and prefabrication & commissioning documentation.

We'll take a visual tour of 3rd party applications, BIM-based projects & discuss how firms have saved time & labor using BIM.

Session #2 - Revit Family Secrets - Creating Quality Content

This technical session is designed for attendees; that are building or managing Autodesk Revit family content for their organizations and projects. Every Revit project has the time and labor costs for gathering and\or creating Revit project families.

Class content provides proven and tested Revit family creation techniques; that was used to create thousands of Revit families for hundreds of Revit projects since 2003.

It has trained more than 150 professionals to assume the role of a Revit-BIM Manager. It provides basic techniques to quickly evaluate, perhaps edit and use pre-built Revit family content found on manufacturers’ and Revit user group websites --to meet your standards.

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Dec 18, 2013 8:51:08 AM

To achieve the full potential of the new technologies; it is critical to understand how effectively project information is flowing between project team partners, between the jobsite and main office and between systems within the company.

The results of this MHC study of information mobility demonstrate the gains the industry has been making, but they also reveal the critical gaps that must be addressed to support the ongoing shift to a more collaborative approach that is currently taking hold in the industry.

Modular Construction | University-Industry Partners In Education

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Nov 19, 2013 3:09:00 AM

Four major trending Design + Construction processes;

  1. Building Information Modeling (BIM),
  2. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD),
  3. Design-Build and
  4. Green + Sustainable

-- are combining their strengths with the value of Modular and Prefabrication Construction processes.

MBI has implemented the first steps to integrate these processes into the learning platforms of education, to build a stronger industry workforce.

The Modular Building Institute launched their new MBI US and Canadian Modular Construction Educational Foundations website.

The website provides great resources on modular and information on MBI Partners in Education program.

The Foundations are establishing partnerships with institutions of higher learning in North America to help educate the rising generation of professionals about the benefits of modular construction.

The Partnerships range from $2500 to $10,000 per year. Benefits to the schools include scholarships, instructional support, in-kind donations, and travel to World of Modular.

If your school or modular building company would like to join these university or industry partners, complete & return the expression of interest form on this MBI Foundation Partners Page.

Greenbuild 2013 Event

The Pedia-Pod Modular Unit A state of the art pediatric building module will be completely constructed off site and installed at Greenbuild 2013.

Built in collaboration with BD&C, this fully functional module will be displayed at this year’s Greenbuild conference in Philadelphia, showcasing the greener way to build with Modular Construction.
