What to expect during the event
The AEC (Architecture, engineering and construction) industry is quickly adopting digital transition and virtual design in construction. The best practices for gaining the most efficiency from BIM (Building Information Modelling) are not strictly defined and definitely can be adjusted for each company’s needs. The one thing we do know is that coordination of the MEP services can affect whole construction process and that is the clear sign that each subcontractor has to adopt changes in construction industry in order to improve their business. This class will lead you through digital transition from the perspective of the MEP subcontractor. We will focus on sharing our experience, methods, procedures and proven workflows, but also how digital transition improved our working experience. From all the information available for digital transition, there is not a lot of them explaining exactly subcontractors role in it, these information can be overwhelming and confusing, so sharing our experience can help someone to start their own journey.
• Sharing our BIM Experience on recent projects
• Digital transition from the perspective of the MEP subcontractor
• MEP Coordination workflows in pre-construction stage
• Why internal CDE (Common Data Environment) is important for MEP subcontractors?
• Lessons Learned – why every subcontractor should have this form at project close-out?
