Open Knowledge Exchange and Sharing. Over 50 construction professionals including contractors, consultants, architects, engineers academics and students filled the lecture theatre in the Rose Bowl in Leeds last week for what was a great start to our thinkBIM’s spring BIM: Construction and Assembly series.

Open Knowledge Exchange and Sharing

Members of The BIM Academy Build Qatar Live Competition Winning team shared their experience and lessons learnt from the intensive 48hr competition, testing multi-disciplinary collaborative BIM to the maximum in a very high pressure environment, utilising up to 30 different softwares (some of which I have highlighted below). Founder of the Build Live competitions and COO of Asite, Nathan Doughty, opened and chaired the evening stressing the BIM Academy teams’ excellence in organization and delivery due to their existing working relationships, a set of common goals and an appetite to test a variety of BIM tools. Work in Progress (WIP) models from the design team were uploaded to Asite as IFC. Fiatech. Autodesk Seek. BIMobject. BIM. ITcon papers : Journal of Information Technology in Construction.

‘Building Information Modelling (BIM) is digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility creating a shared knowledge resource for information about it forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life cycle, from earliest conception to demolition.”

The Building Coder. My topic for today is structural cross section analysis, i.e. determination of the cross section profile of beam, columns, braces, etc., and the various completely different approaches one can take to achieve this. I also demonstrate how to make use of some of the powerful functionality provided by the REX toolkit without building my entire application on top of the REX framework.

Before getting to that, though, let me mention where we are with the DevDays conference tour: DevDays in Milano and Security We held our second West European Devday in Milano on Tuesday. Here is Jim Quanci entertaining his enthralled audience: One piece of Jim's presentation deals with security. I think it is so important and Jim's ten-minute overview so effective and refreshing I decided to publish it right here and now: Something else happened after the conference, travelling...

On Monday, Jim and I were joking that I arrive at the airport gate at the last minute, and it was about time I get burned. 1. 2. 3. Building Information Modelling - Designing Buildings Wiki.

Campbell, AIA, LEED AP "The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand. " – Vince Lombardi It's Super Bowl week, and whether you're cheering for football's best offense in the Denver Broncos, or the Seattle Seahawks league-best defense, at the end of the game only one team will emerge from the swamps of New Jersey as the champion of the National Football League.

Industry Champions Of course, in our industry, we hear about champions all the time. At Autodesk, we often have the pleasure of working with industry "BIM Champions" when we interface with our customers who use our tools and solutions. Don't Be a BIM Champion That's right, if you're a "BIM Champion," you should not be satisfied with that title. BIM Catalogs. A UK Government Initiative.

VDC and BIM Scorecard. Building Information Modelling. Some users use BIM systems as advanced Computer Aided Design (CAD), others as a series of models for distinct elements of a project.

Building Information Modelling

For those at the cutting edge, a single integrated model is the goal. Its users hope that BIM can achieve cost savings and ultimately include integrated cost modelling, construction sequencing and facilities management capabilities. Where CAD depicts construction elements with lines that define a structure's geometry, BIM creates each element of the structure as an ‘intelligent’ object containing a broad array of information (parametric data) in addition to its physical dimensions. Each element in the BIM model ‘knows’ how it relates to other objects and to the design in general. The 360° View. Sketchup. BIM ThinkSpace. Projet_anr_communic. Computational design. BIM Excellence.

New Processes, Tools & Technologies: BIM to IPD

While these are often new and proprietary to a particular provider such that the requisite combination of reliance and validation should be well thought out, they go further into the standard of care by actually becoming a part of how the design professional provides its service. Design professionals have clearly been the beneficiaries of technological advances in the tools of their trade.

The evolution from the slide rule to the calculator to computer modeling to CADD have all helped design professionals provide their services faster, better, and less expensively. As new tools and processes for design delivery are presented, design professionals face an inherent trade off between opportunity and risk. The opportunity to be, and to be perceived as, “cutting edge” and to provide services better and less expensively is obvious.

BIM is the life-cycle management of the built environment supported by digital technology. Unfortunately, too much emphasis has been placed upon 3-D visualization and other technology components vs. the process of life-cycle management.Facility / Infrastructure Life Cycle Cost: Costs associated with designing, acquiring, constructing, adapting, maintaining, repairing, and operating a built structure.While Value Management is used as term in this paper, it is arguably interchangeable with Capital Planning and Management (CPMS). Correspondence: This paper used literature review to achieve its aim. IV.1 The evaluation phase. RIB: RIB iTWO. Virtual design is the basis for innovation and competitive advantages in the automotive and machine engineering industries and others when it comes to time-to-market, cost control, design and quality.


RIB has now adapted this technology for the construction industry (AEC). With RIB iTWO you too can benefit from considerable time and cost savings in implementing your projects.
