In 2010, the GSA commissioned a feasibility study of the Robert C. Weaver Federal Building, the 1.2 million-square-foot home of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The HUD Building currently is home to 3,000 HUD employees with 700 more scattered through the federal district. Using Macro BIM to perform detailed analysis of occupancy and existing space, the project team created a new maximized space plan to accommodate all 3,700 staffers. Several major modernization plans were also studied.
Webinar attendees will learn how Macro BIM was used:
• With traditional “Problem Seeking” programming strategies
• Gathering and verifying data
• Analyzing multiple alternatives
• Developing cost estimates
Examples from the Robert C. Weaver Federal Building Feasibility Study and Program of Requirements project will be used to demonstrate these concepts. Additionally, lessons learned, other potential uses for the BIM, and a BIM roadmap for the project will be presented.
