BIM Perspectives NY

Microsol Resources' BIM Perspectives seminars are events held annually in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia. They are tailored to study the usage of building information modeling (BIM) by multi-disciplinary project teams and to showcase best practices for using BIM as a basis for a collaborative design and construction process. We will hear about the challenges and benefits of the BIM technology from the perspective of leading local and national AEC practitioners.

This year's theme for BIM Perspectives New York is "Collaboration", focusing on the entire project team. From the owners and facilities professionals to the architects, engineers, construction, and specialty contractors, we will investigate new ways to accelerate innovation. We will explore cloud-based and mobile collaboration, as well as the dynamics between people inside or outside an organization for flexible and effective project workflow.

When McGraw-Hill Construction first began to track BIM adoption in 2007, only 28% of companies were BIM users. By 2009, that figure had grown to 49%, and in 2012, 71% of the firms surveyed report using BIM. Today, BIM has emerging standards and best practices and an increasingly skilled user base incorporating its functionality into daily workflows. BIM also drives innovation by expanding its uses into new tasks and integrating its data into many other vital technology tools. We will hear more from Steve Jones who directs McGraw-Hill Construction's initiatives in BIM, and has also co-authored McGraw-Hill Construction's SmartMarket Reports on interoperability and BIM.

BIM is continually transforming complex design and building processes. In this session, we will hear from the DDC about their BIM Guide which provides a guideline for the development and use of BIM to leverage the capabilities of BIM for building O&M, the new standards on model level of development (LOD), use of BIM in the healthcare industry, and the use of BIM in the field for construction.

As more companies develop digital models it is increasingly important to manage the inter-company workflows that exchange vital information among project stakeholders, from design through to fabrication and installation. This panel will help us understand how critical new advancements in BIM standards for modeling and emerging trends in multi-party, international workflow management for architects, engineers, fabricators and contractors are re-engineering the digital workflows of the future.

The need for innovative and cost effective approaches to both new and reconstructed infrastructure has never been greater or more urgent. This panel discusssion not only disucsses on what is new in BIM for infrastructure today but it provides a baseline for the transition to new digitally-based collaborative processes for infrastructure for the future.
