C4R: Connecting Project Teams

Looking for ways to more easily coordinate with others who aren’t in your network or working on the same network? With Collaboration for Revit (C4R) it’s easy to work with and collaborate with others from just about anywhere, regardless of their location or if they work for the same company. It also comes with many benefits for those who manage and review projects. 

Join us and learn more about the benefits and workflow of Collaboration for Revit and BIM 360 Team, and connect your project teams for better communication, access and results.

Connected BIM

With each passing year, we see our industry growing and evolving with the technology and trends that are becoming more widely available. This growth challenges us to keep up with advancements and understanding their implications. It can seem like with each new ability, there’s another abbreviation or “D” added to a number that we need to learn, but with Connected BIM that’s not really the case. In many ways that we may not realize, we are already using some of the abilities that we associate with it.

If you are looking to see where BIM is going and how you can leverage the cloud to do more and make your teams more efficient, please join us as we go over the next phase in BIM: Connected BIM.

Bridging the Gap: BIM to Facilities Management

A Stanford University Center for Integrated Facilities Engineering (CIFE) study reports significant cost savings in 32 major projects using Building Information Modeling. As a result, owners increasingly require the development of a BIM model for new construction and major renovation projects.  However, the benefits of BIM are not limited to design and construction. In this webinar, we will discuss which pieces of BIM information contribute to cost savings in Operations and Maintenance, how to use ModelStream® to enable your organization to migrate data from your BIM Models to your IBM Maximo CMMS, and the basics of how ModelStream® maps data and creates a bi-directional information flow between the systems.

InfraWorks as a Design Tool

From its inception, InfraWorks has made great strides in enhancing and accelerating the transportation design process.  But what about Land Development?  In our world of new urbanism, Land Development is experiencing a shift in planning and design strategies. Attend this webinar to learn how InfraWorks can help you better strategize, plan and design your next commercial, industrial or institutional project through the use of GIS data, point clouds, grading, annotation, and visualization strategies.

BIM for Project Management

The workflow, adoption, and tools available for BIM processes have grown each year within all disciplines in AECO. Though much of the focus for BIM implementations tends to be on Revit, it's important to realize that BIM is not one particular tool but a workflow that focuses on the information in our models and designs, enabling us to do more, faster and better.

Join us to discover what moving to BIM means to the management of your projects, and how it can enable you to do more, faster and better, and from anywhere.
