  • Marc Goldman – Director of Strategy @ The Blue Book.Marc has a twenty-year track record of forming, building, launching and managing profitable technology-based product and service businesses in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry. He has worked in nearly all segments of these industries –, including nearly10 years at Autodesk in senior management roles.  He is currently responsible for guiding The Blue Book Network in its continued development of digital workflow solutions for the AEC Community. Marc’s writing are frequently published in a variety of Building Design and Construction publications; and Marc is has been frequent presenter at industry events nationally and globally on the topics of BIM and Interoperability.
  • Welcome. Thank you for joining us today for our panel discussion titled BIM in the Real World. The people you’ll hear from today are local, or have a direct connection to our location today in Chicago. They have used BIM on projects nearby and they will highlight how BIM in the Real World delivered real value to them. Before we get started…Can I get a quick show of hands:Architects, Designers or EngineersGeneral ContractorsSub-contractorsProduct MfrI ask because when you start to talk about BIM its clear the term means different things to different groups. Today we’re going to hear from users like you, and like you, the panelists will have various definitions of BIM. The common thread is how they show how BIM is being used in the Real World.
  • I know there are cities where BIM is common across all segments and the location is abuzz about BIM. I’ve seen great BIM work done in little cities and I see very little BIM in some great cities. But from one city to the next……I’m finding the level of BIM usage varies. There are always some experts and some novices. Some still on the fences, and some clearly in the group of BIM evangelist. But in all locations I find starting out with a bit of BIM 101 is a good start, if nothing else if provides a single frame work for us to have a conversation.
  • The framework that I’d like to use begins by bringing things back to basics: Nouns and Verbs. We’ll use a simple version of both words. Noun: A place or thing. Verb: An activity or action. These things are all nouns. They are all a pictures of a building or maybe more than one And these things are all verbs: Also, pictures of building. One word… BUILDING – it is both a noun and a verb.And, so is BIM
  • BIM data and the software which we download and install. The nouns. The things.BIM processes & workflows which we learn & master. The verbs. The activities.Neither are of much use without the other. Employing new software that creates new file formats and provides rich data is great. But you will need to change some old processes, define some new ones and you will find yourself developing & implementing productive workflows.Let me put some more definition around the Nouns and Verbs.
  • BIM as a noun – its a database. BIM might be a single data file with all these types of construction information, or it might be many files that get brought together.
  • Architectural model with walls, doors, windows, ceilings and grids…
  • Structural model with slabs, beams, columns trusses, girders and other framing elements.
  • HVAC comprised of objects such as ductwork, diffusers, blowers, chillers, vav boxes
  • Electrical and lighting model with fixtures, switches and sometimes the conduit
  • Even furniture modeled in place.
  • All of these objects, components, systems & families come together and form ½ of BIM as a Noun.
  • The other part of BIM as a noun is the software, the tools, the cloud-based applications you use. These tools are typically purpose-built for architecture, engineering, visualization, construction, analysis or facilities management.
  • And then, BIM as a Verb – the part of BIM which I think is a bit less understood than the noun definition.BIM as a Verb is about processes.
  • The process of analyzing a BIM file during design and determining by re-orienting the building by 5 degrees with result in capturing prevailing winds and thus earning the project the LEED points desired.
  • It’s the process of assigning time & cost to a BIM model so you can see, and demonstrate the logistics of construction reducing risk and maximizing profit and value.
  • Its about prefabricating 38 patient walls in an assembly line manner. Each unit comprised of metal studs, med-gases, conduit, copper piping and more. With virtually zero waste and 50% of traditional labor costs.
  • BIM is about workflows. Collaborating, coordinating, co-locating and more. BIM, in part enables these workflows and these workflows are empowered by the capabilities of BIM.
  • To build on top of those concepts today, and continue from where I’ve left off, I’m glad to introduce:Todd from Aspen HillsAndre from HOK.Adam from McCarthyJohn from Bovis Lend LeaseJason from AutodeskThese gentleman, are going to provide examples of the wide range of definitions and of the benefits of BIM. Through their examples, I think you’re impression of BIM might change some.
  • My conversations with these panelists, meetings with companies just like yours, and people just like you, have helped me to realize we’re at an interesting intersection. It truly is an amazing point in time as it relates to the construction industry. Technology, the economy, and a changing workforce have come together to create an opportunity to change the way we work.
  • We might still work in Silos, some processes are sacred and don’t justify a change. By leveraging technology, working within the confines of the economy, and embracing the approach of a new workforce some firms are doing some amazing things with BIM.
  • Technology – it’s ubiquitous, everywhere, always on with an expectation to always be accessible. We are leveraging our technology to create and move information of great value, of enormous size and in usable formats greater today than ever before. We are capable of moving vast amounts of building and construction information, not just data but useful information that can deliver great value to the entire project team. And some firms are using this as a competitive advantage today.
  • And what a time to find a competitive advantage – it’s been 2 ½ years since the banking industry and construction industries bubbles burst. It’s been a full 12 months since we were shown statistically the recession had ended? Flat is the new growth I’ve been told; firms are figuring out how to doing more with less and using their productivity as a competitive advantage. Our Industry is perhaps recovering, in some sectors in some regions. Anecdotally, I’m hearing firms bidding and winning more work than they had seen in years. But as they win this work, they are doing more with less. Fewer people are being expected to do more.
  • Everyone who was laid-off, or retired is not coming back. And when you do have the luxury of hiring, and if you’ve been able to keep your technology up-to-date , you are probably finding your workforce and work environment has changed. New entrants to the building design & construction industry bring a set of skills unimagined less than 5 years ago. As the baby-boomers are retiring, today’s graduates are more than ready to deliver on the promise of BIM.Many firms are leveraging technology as a way to do more with less, and these firms are often allowing the new workforce to demonstrate and sometimes drive change.
  • To drive change. That’s what these organizations are doing. These companies are looking at the building industry from a different perspective. And that’s what I know we’ll be presenting here – a different perspective. We acknowledge BIM isn’t practiced everywhere, but you’ll see it is being practiced in many ways by firms like yours. BIM has caused these organizations to take a different approach, and in many cases their approach is allowing them to thrive in this very interesting moment in time. I think you’ll be impressed.Let’s start with Todd from Aspen HillsAndre from HOK.Adam from McCarthyJohn from Bovis Lend LeaseJason from Autodesk
