Although the concept of Building Information Modeling (BIM) is not new, some exciting new technologies can greatly increase your ability to design, fabricate, and manage the entire lifecycle of your projects. Learn about them in this engaging lunchtime learning presentation, and how adopting an Open BIM workflow can secure the value you lend to your team both now and in the future as each project evolves. Whether you’re an architect, engineer, or other design professional, don’t miss this chance to learn a better way to collaborate with team members in a dynamic global design environment.
After attending this presentation, participants will be able to:
1.) define Open BIM and IFC;
2.) explain how Open BIM workflows and IFC technology improve interoperability;
3.) increase collaboration with design partners using Open BIM workflows and IFC technology; and
4.) identify examples of how Open BIM and IFC are used today.
