CAP Collaboration Series: Can we all just get along? Working together in a BIM Environment with GLY Construction

Join our Corporate Allied Partner GLY Construction for an hour long Continuing Education class on collaborating in the BIM environment.

Course Description

What’s stopping us? IDP Contacts, early contractor engagement, Design Build, integrated technology, multiple design iterations, pre-fabrication, tighter deadlines, competitive pricing, sub-contractor detailing, clash detection, fast track permitting and construction. With all these requirements it’s not surprising architects and contractors are having difficulty figuring out how to work together. It’s a daunting prospect. But the best solutions usually spring from the most challenging circumstances. This presentation will look at the potential for greater collaboration these requirements could unleash in our industry from the perspective of the Digital Design Manager at a national architecture firm and the Virtual Design & Construction Manager at a leading construction company in the Seattle metropolitan area. We’ll begin with a look at the technical issues we currently face: 1. Contracts not focusing on the digital deliverables 2. Resistance to new technologies and perceived risk of new workflows 3. Poor knowledge of platforms 4. Cover-my-ass mentality 5. Lack of understanding about what to model and draw 6. Inefficiency of modeling multiple times 7. Ineffective BIM Execution Plan and LOD Matrix 8. Reliance on 2D printed documentation Then we’ll jump into a case study of a Design Build partnership that commences design in January 2016. The project is a fast track, tight budget, tenant improvement for a large tech company in the Seattle metro area.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe how reliance on outdated methods of communication, documentation, and risk management can impact the delivery of projects and negatively impact relationships between design teams and contraction teams.
  • Create a BIM execution plan that can improve and streamline the collaborative workflow between the architect and the contractor.
  • Identify tools (contracts, work plans, graphics, models, and other deliverables) that create value for the owner and assist in more efficiently achieving fast and budget driven projects.
  • Appraise lessons learned from the presented case study.
