What to expect during the event
Are you a BIM Manager and need some guidance in navigating technology, collaboration, and the BIM process in general? Then this session is for you!
Having spent over a quarter of a century in the architectural and civil design fields, and the last three years as a BIM Manager before joining Autodesk, Kimberly brings a fresh perspective on what it means to be a “BIM Manager”. Her experience from architectural CAD technician through civil design and back to architectural BIM Manager, plus her transition to Revit Community Manager Autodesk, and all the technological twists and turns along the way will be summed up in the “Top Ten Things I Wish I Knew as a BIM Manager”.
We will start with a look at how BIM management has been defined and redefined throughout industry and the construction world. We will explore the evolution of technology and dip our toes into what may be the future of BIM technology. Building on Kimberly’s experience in growing into BIM Management, we will dive into some best practices for collaborating with BIM teams, some roadblocks to avoid and life lessons along the way. We will also explore many of the support resources and feedback channels that are currently available to Autodesk customers that that average user may not know about (but wish they had!).
