Topic:  Owner Driven BIM, and What Architects Should be Asking

BIM is becoming an increasingly popular owner-requested project deliverable.  As the AEC industry explores adjustments and shifts needed across design teams to make this deliverable a reality, conflicting ideas continue to arise about what ‘BIM’ really is, who models what, and how reliable data is incorporated and tracked. This class will dispel common misconceptions concerning Level of Development, introduce best practices around BIM standards, and relay critical conversations you should be having with your clients (and contractors) where BIM is the deliverable.

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

  • Discuss upcoming shifts in the construction industry that are projected to drive changes in design model output and use
  • Define Level of Development (LOD) for Model Elements and common misnomers
  • Understand how using an LOD Specification as part of your BIM Execution Plan can Minimize Risk
  • Understand why LOD discussions with owners and contractors are crucial at Project Start… and other conversations you should be having.
