So You Want a BIM Model But What Does That Really Mean?
COAA Webinar: APRIL 16, 2019 2:00 - 3:00 PM EDT
BIM, in and of itself, is not the end but rather the means to a number of valuable project delivery outcomes for an Owner. Now more than ever, Owners are becoming more focused on leveraging BIM to deliver their projects but when asking for a BIM model, is there a deeper understanding of what that really means? This session will break down some of the common miscues made when asking for a “BIM model” around topics such as LOD, COBie, RFP/RFQ, contracts, project delivery and turnover documents. Ultimately this session will enable Owners to better understand how to accurate define a level of reliability for the downstream users of the project’s multi-disciplinary BIM deliverables allowing for the value of these models to extend into the operate phase of the design-construct-operate continuum.
- Share emerging best practices for how owners are leveraging BIM.
- Define what to ask for and what not to ask for in you project RFPs and RFQs.
- Explain how a BIM can serve as a conduit for more streamlined projected delivery methods.
- Describe how a BIM can facilitate an efficient information exchange from the Design-Contract to the Operate phase of a building’s lifecycle.
This course has been approved for 1.0 AIA LU.
Meet the Presenter
Brian Brian Skripac, CM-BIM, is CannonDesign’s Director of Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) who continually drives innovation by focusing on the process orientation of the Building Information Modeling (BIM)-enabled VDC delivery process at CannonDesign. He has more than 20 years of industry experience, with the last 13 focusing on the integration of BIM and VDC to transform project delivery. Brian has successfully developed and managed BIM-enabled delivery systems for large efforts in Design-Led Construction. In addition, he focuses on the use of building information models to capture and structure relevant facility data to achieve the value a BIM-enabled VDC delivery process brings to facility owners from an interoperable lifecycle management strategy. A thought leader in this field, he is an advisory group member and past-chair of the AIA National Technology in Architectural Practice Knowledge Community and serves on the BIMForum committee responsible for authoring the LOD Specification.
