[Webinar] Bring BIM to Your Next Veterans Affairs Healthcare Facility Project
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has long been a proponent of Building Information Modeling (BIM). In 2010, VA issued its Building Information Lifecycle Vision or “BIM Guide” stating its commitment to move the organization and its service providers to BIM “as effectively and efficiently as possible”.
“Just as the VA’s digitization of patient records has greatly improved the business and management process of care delivery for patients, so the digitization of building data will improve the design and management of VA buildings across their lifecycles—from concept to design to construction to operations to reuse and eventual demolition.”
Today, the VA’s BIM Guide is considered a fantastic example of well thought out BIM requirements for its contractors and its BIM projects. And, when it comes to practical application of BIM, VA is leading the charge with BIM implementation. Take for example the 1.2 million square foot Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Orlando, Florida. The team members went from zero modeling experience on this pilot project (using Autodesk Revit) to gaining an Honorable Mention by the AIA TAP BIM Awards.
Why and How to Get to BIM
To understand more about how VA can benefit from BIM. DLT has teamed with IMAGINiT Technologies, an Autodesk Platinum Partner, for an exclusive webinar – Building Information Modeling for Veterans Affairs on Wednesday, July 19th at 1.00 PM EDT.
Join Joe Eichenseer, Building Solutions Team Manager with IMAGINiT, to learn how the VA can design, build and operate higher performing healthcare facilities with BIM solutions.
Joe will discuss:
• The impact of BIM on space management and bottom line financials
• How BIM can accelerate and enhance design review
• Processes to streamline project review meetings
• How simulation of the model can drive efficiency in your facility
• How BIM can be leveraged to develop cost estimates and alternates
