As BIM gains ground in transportation infrastructure, with 52% of contractors now deploying it in their projects, BIM is fast becoming a “must-have” – reducing risk and waste, and enabling a more responsible way to design, build, operate and maintain roads, bridges, and more.
But how does that translate to the nuts and bolts of on-the-ground real-life projects? How and where does BIM fit into the lifecycle of a project? And, how can you use BIM to connect each phase for more effective results.
Autodesk University (AU) is a great event for anyone looking to explore new innovations in digital design or brush up on their software skills. But not all public sector organizations have the budget to send their CAD teams to AU. No problem! AU has assembled a catalog of on-demand sessions that you can watch for free. You can also download the presentations, workbooks, and transcripts to keep by your side as you explore what you’ve learned.
Has your agency or organization’s AEC project taken Building Information Modeling (BIM) to the next level? Now’s your chance to showcase your innovation with your peers via the Autodesk 2017 AEC Excellence Awards.
You can enter up to five projects among four categories: Infrastructure, Building, Construction, and Sustainability.
The use of BIM for infrastructure in the U.S. is well on the way to becoming established for transportation projects. These are the findings of a new SmartMarket Report – The Business Value of BIM for Infrastructure – from Dodge Data & Analytics and DLT partner, Autodesk.
For infrastructure and transportation civil engineers and designers, the new releases incorporate feedback from users and stress better economics, practicality, resiliency and attractiveness in the conception, design and construction of road, highway, bridge, land, and other infrastructure projects.
The revitalization of U.S. infrastructure is once again a hot topic as the new White House administration pledges to invest in the nation’s roads, bridges and airports. Politics aside, it’s a timely imperative. Once again, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has ranked U.S. infrastructure at a D+ grading.
City and county infrastructure designers and civil engineers won’t want to miss this unique webinar series taking place every Tuesday through May 2017.
Join a host of familiar Autodesk faces as they walkthrough the phases of a challenging roadway project. From gathering data about the existing situation, producing a project concept, moving that concept to the detailed design phase, conducting additional analysis, and finally creating compelling visualizations to share with project stakeholders, including low cost virtual reality.
It’s no surprise that the practice of designing, building, and operating public sector buildings and infrastructure must change. As our built environments become increasingly complex, it’s vital that project team productivity and asset performance levels are addressed. According to KPMG, just a quarter of construction projects in the last three years came within 10% of their original deadlines.
