    • TODD WYATT twyatt68@gmail.com 414.704.5568 321 East Cedar Avenue Denver CO 80209 B I M I N I T I A T I V E SI was part of a 3 person design applications team (Design App Mgr, Design App Specialist, and me) that lead the conversion of AutoCADto Revit for EUA in Milwaukee in 2007. We selected individual project teams that we felt would be a good project to be modeled in Revit.We trained the project team staff, typically 3 5, and offered support throughout the design process. We surveyed the project team duringand after the project completion to gain insight in the best way to train and support future project teams. We continued with this processfor 12 18 months until the majority of technical staff had gone through this process.I continued to consult with the Design App Mgr (DAM) & Design App Specialist (DAS) as they developed staff requested Revit contentand provided feedback relating to which parameters should and should not be included in a specific Revit family. The DAM and DASconsulted with me about best practices as they related to deliverables including detailing strategies, dimensioning, and keynoting. Ideveloped a firm wide Professional Development Program (PDP) that included monthly Revit lunch n learns that tied into the buildingassembly (e.g. exterior wall systems) topic for that month.In my role as Quality Assurance Manager for EUA, I worked with design project teams in developing a matrix identifying what modelcontent was needed by design phase. I worked with contractors in developing a Level of Detail (LOD) matrix identifying the levels ofdetail of the Revit model by design phase. I reviewed PDF versions of contract documents and utilized the Revit model to double checkareas of the design that needed further coordination. I created combined A/M/E/P deliverables into a single PDF to illustrate to thedesign team areas that needed further coordination.I developed nomenclature for Revit content including doors and frames, specialties, interior wall types, and windows. I developed akeynoting system that utilized the MasterFormat 2004 divisional numbering system (e.g. 07 20 00 Air & Moisture Barrier = 7F 2 "Liquidapplied waterproofing .."). I created a building system list (e.g. FWS # : Foundation Wall System, EWS # Exterior Wall System) thatallowed project teams to easily modify their Revit families and the related tags would update globally. I developed diagrams (e.g. adjustableshelving quantities in base, wall & tall casework) that reduced additional annotation throughout the CD set. I developed legends for lifesafety plans, ceiling plans, and telecomm/data/power plans.I formulated the above BIM standards by first researching national standards for a specific building system. If there was not a national orindustry standard, I would develop 2 3 options and run these by production leadership team representatives for their feedback. I wouldthen finalize the standard and the DAM and DAS would integrate it into EUAs BIM standards. In some cases, staff would offer feedbackand their suggestions would be implemented.Deliverables Training Revit • Diagrams • Revit vs. ADT Comparison • Finish Manager Base Length o Adjustable Shelving • Detailing Strategies • Keynote Options o Hdwr Locations • Life Safety Plans • Lineweight Charts o Plumbing Fixtures • Wall Types • Schedules o Specialties o Casework By Room • Legends Data Management o Finish Materials o Life Safety Plans • Imperial Library For Review o Hardware o Ceiling Plans • Archiving Process o Hardware Key o Telecom Data & Power o Specialties • Hard Copies vs. PDF’s • Tags o Medical Equipment o Casework Best Practices • Types Bldg Components o Door # and Hdwr Set o Door Nomenclature o Finish • Accessible Clearance Boxes o Frame Nomenclature • Model Content By Phase • Dimensioning Rules of Thumb o Lab Cswk Nomenclature • Sheet Sets & Numbering Systems o Specialties Nomenclature o Wall GraphicGraphics o Wall Nomenclature • Detail Grids o Window Nomenclature • Dimensioning : Dot vs. Tick Usage • Levels of Detail (LOD) • Floor Finish Transitions • Non Intelligent Tags C:UsersToddDocumentsMy Profession_ToddPortfolioExperience_BIM.docx
