Topic: Working with the US Army Corps and BIM (Update to the 2013 presentation)

As the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) continues its path towards fully utilizing BIM, ensuring that the private sector understands what is required to deliver a BIM-based project is paramount to success. Our next meeting, we will discuss the collaborative development of the USACE BIM contract language, discuss requirements, list deliverables, and explain the USACE BIM project execution plan (PxP) template and the new Minimum Modeling Matrix (M3).

The PxP and M3 are at the cornerstone of the USACE BIM Process: The PxP is a document submitted by the private sector partner that defines the project process for the team. The M3 is a document used by the team to define deliverable Level of Development for each model element (based on Classification Systems like OmniClass and UniFormat.)

This presentation is by a private sector committee member of the US Army Corps of Engineers BIM Advisory Committee. This presentation will discuss the presenter’s experiences and efforts in the process.

Topic: UAV data collection- What can we do with it

UAVs can be used to quickly capture a great deal of data quickly. Did you know that photogrammetric tools can automatically process photos into 3D models that are accurate and geo-referenced? But, what can you do with photogrammetry data collected by a drone? Where does photogrammetric data quality land on the accuracy scale compared to other reality capture techniques?

We’ll cover…
• What tools can be used for photogrammetry
• The data UAVs can collect
• How to translate photographs into useable point clouds
• What you can do with photogrammetry-based point clouds
• how to analyze, share and integrate as-built data

Topic: “0” to Hero Taming the Bid Bad Clash

If you have never run clash detection, but you need to start, then this class is for you.  I will take you on a journey from “0” to project HERO in less than an hour.  Like many firms we don’t have the luxury of working with the same consultants on every project, and we don’t have lots of time.  I will teach simple settings and tips on how we use Navisworks Manage, Clarity Workshare, and a couple of Revit plugins during design & CA to find and fix those pesky clashes.

At the end of this class, you will be able to:

  • Fast and efficient find ways to create clashes
  • Create a Navisworks Template for your firm.
  • Showcase plugins for getting the clashes back into Revit using .xml exports.
