Re-Thinking Your Firm into Autodesk® Revit®: The Transition to BIM Takes More than Software.

I'll be hosting an Unconference at Autodesk University 2011 in Las Vegas. We'll be discussing the management task of changing a practice from traditional drawing delivery to BIM-Based design in an Unconference. (CM4777-U on Wednesday, November 30 2011 in Zeno 4601 at 3:15 PM-4:45 PM)
Wednesday 3:15 PM Zeno 4601

Class Description:
Building Information Modeling (BIM) as a technology and process is radically different from traditional design practice. Are you going to try to press your traditional practice into the BIM mold? If we are going to re-organize design to use BIM, then let's re-think the way we approach and manage design. When does engineering work start on a facility? Why do your staff sit where they do? How do you evaluate computer hardware purchases? What has worked and not worked in your practice to leverage the tools that BIM provides to produce better and/or more profitable projects? How do you train your users? How do you measure their abilities? Do you continue to use drawings? How and why? What radical change can you imagine to the design process that will make use of the technology and tools now available to us as designers? Speak out and learn from others at this unconference session!
