The structural engineering profession is standing on the brink of a new technology that will revolutionize the way structures are designed and constructed. The change is going to be more significant and more profound than the transition from hand computation and drafting to computer aided design.
The Building Information Model provides the 3-D objects library of the physical building. Unlike 2D CAD drawings, when you make a revision in any element in the model all the views and details in the model are automatically updated.
This timely webinar focus on how structural engineers can benefit from this emerging technology by reviewing the BIM concept, discussing how BIM will affect your business, evaluating current BIM technology, exploring critical issues for best business practices. and exploring legal issues and risks involved with BIM.
Building information modeling expands significantly the design decision matrix, facilitating collaboration among the various disciplines and systems, identifying clashes before construction begins. Incorporating constructability into the structural design decision matrix, has the potential to help the design team make smarter decisions, and positively impact overall project efficiency and quality.
BIM can deliver projects that integrate design and construction insights in a highly collaborative and owner-friendly format.
