Hands-on Workshop Title: Applying BIM Workflows to Site Design and Documentation (2 hour HSW CEU approval pending with NCBOLA)
Workshop Description:
Building design professionals are increasingly adopting Building Information Modeling (BIM) in their projects and asking Landscape Architects to use the same processes. This workshop will introduce site-specific BIM processes and describe how current technology supports Landscape Architecture professionals as they use these workflows in their site design, analysis and documentation.
Learning Objectives/Outcomes:
Participants in this workshop will learn how imported files from allied professionals can be converted to information modeling objects, such as digital terrain models (DTM), from which design and analysis can proceed.
Discover how quickly parametric objects, like walls with constructed components, can be utilized to affect the other smart hybrid objects in proposed site development.
Realize efficiencies gained by using referenced viewport tools to develop enlarged plans and live section views, further linking documentation throughout the project.
