Revit and Building Information Modeling (BIM) Presentation

  1. 1. Revit and BuildingInformation Modeling(BIM)1
  2. 2. “A change anywhere isa change everywhere”- Autodesk2
  3. 3. Building Information Modeling - BIM• What is BIM?• How we have implemented it.• What are the benefits?3
  4. 4. What is BIM?• Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process ofgenerating and managing building data during its lifecycle. BIM uses three-dimensional, real-time, dynamicbuilding modeling software to increase productivity inbuilding design and construction.• To create a BIM, a modeler uses intelligent objects(Families) to build the model.4
  5. 5. Some Key Terms:2-D/3-D CAD: Equivalent to conventional drafting, only performed ona computer. Unintelligent.3-D BIM: A model that includes 3-D shape information only.4-D BIM: A 3-D BIM that has objects and assemblies that haveschedule and time constraint data added to them. (4-D = 3-D +schedule (time))5-D BIM: A 4-D BIM that has objects and assemblies that have a costdimension added to them. (5-D = 4-D + cost.)5
  6. 6. Fiedler Group’s Implementation of BIM• Completely different than AutoCAD• New software-Revit• Retrained our design team• Re-Created office standards• Stepped implementation A-S-MEP6
  7. 7. Challenges of BIM• Limited availability of trained designers.• Consultants that use BIM.• Availability of ready-to-use BIM libraries from vendorsand suppliers.• Full implementation of Revit Electrical.7
  8. 8. Benefits of BIM• Improved quality of the construction drawings (CDs).• Reduced time to prepare the initial drawings and finalCDs.• Quantities and shared properties of materials are easilyextracted for cost estimating.8
  9. 9. Prototype Revit Model• Architectural• Structural• Mechanical• Electrical• Plumbing• AutomotiveDrawing Updating9
