The 2019 conference will highlight case studies of how the building community is driving quantitative and qualitative outcomes through the development of model-centric workflows that address the entire design-build-operate continuum.

Presenters will address innovative applications of technology and addressing its implications. Topics will include:

  • Model-centric workflows, model reliability, less reliance on drawings
  • The scalability of a BIM to address project delivery models beyond Design-Bid-Build
  • Legal challenges of BIM
  • Advances in BIM contract language
  • Implementation of BIM Execution Plans
  • Standards for the use of BIM and data throughout the lifecycle of projects
  • Owners leveraging LOD to define deliverables
  • Best practices for laser scanning and reality capture in building documentation
  • Peer-reviewed research specifically addressing results of BIM use and/or the BIMForum LOD Specification
  • Value in leveraging IFC and open standards

Continuing education credits are available through AGC, AIA, and USGBC.
