Eric Wing lives in Syracuse NY where he is the Director of BIM Services for C&S Companies. Eric is a popular speaker at events around the world speaking on many BIM-related topics. Eric has authored several books including Autodesk’s official training guide for their BIM solution “Revit” called Revit for Architecture No Experience Required. Eric is also an author for LinkedIn Learning where he has authored multiple full courses on BIM management, Revit, AutoCAD MEP, Navisworks and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) Eric has truly been a leader in the architecture, engineering and construction industry since the conception of BIM and 3D design, and has specialty skills in BIM coordination, training and development of technical staff along with daily application of these tools on multi scale, multi-disciplinary projects. Eric is currently a Professor at Syracuse University teaching BIM and Advanced BIM at the School of Architecture, and at the School of Engineering. Eric also teaches courses at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Clarkson University, and SUNY Polytechnic Institute on the subjects of Analytical tools for Facility Management, BIM, and Integrated Project Delivery.
What to expect during the event
There are many ways to do this successfully. There are also many ways to do this unsuccessfully. I’ve done both. In this session, we will look at compatibilities (and incompatibilities) between Revit, Civil 3D, Navisworks, Infraworks and BIM 360. We will look at how each application can contribute to a well-coordinated project if used properly. This will include, of course, establishing the dreaded and confusing shared coordinates within Revit. Also, software aside, I’d like to discuss project coordination that should occur regardless of the project scope and size, ranging from basic kickoff meetings to following a Bim Execution Plan. This presentation is meant to be as interactive as possible. As mentioned, there are many ways to coordinate buildings with the site. I will lay out how I do it, and what I think are the best practices for this workflow. Audience members may disagree or have a better workflow and that is welcomed.
