Urban development is a big challenge for governments and project owners. Urbanization, combined with overall population growth, could add another 2.5 billion to the world’s urban centers by 2050. For the infrastructure sector, this means providing the essential utilities and transportation systems to support these dense over-crowded areas – while doing more with less.
With BIM mandates and pressure to improve collaboration and efficiencies on construction projects, how are teams taking advantage of digital workflows to improve the potential of BIM?
Did you make it to Autodesk University (AU) this year? There was a great deal of buzz about infrastructure and the ways in which, in the words of Autodesk’s Theo Agelopoulos, “we can develop more sustainable and resilient infrastructure yet optimize their operations and longevity”.
But there were also some great breakout sessions on all things civil infrastructure design, engineering, and construction – many of which are now available to view online, for free!
We frequently write about BIM principles, use cases and best practices here on the DLT blog, but one area that often goes neglected in BIM are the soft skills or people skills. What is the role of a BIM manager anyway? How can you better achieve your project goals as design technology managers or support your personnel?
Did you love “BIM on the Rocks”, Autodesk’s blog dedicated to all things infrastructure design/build/management? Alas, as of August 31st, it’s no more. Before you grab your Kleenex, take a look at the new kid on the blog – Infrastructure Reimagined.
Infrastructure Reimagined takes over from where BIM on the Rocks blog left off. Launched in June of this year, this new site is more of a slick resource hub than a regular blog feed. Easy-to-navigate, whatever your specialty or interest, the site is worth a bookmark.
It’s that time again. Autodesk University (AU) is fast approaching. This year’s in Las Vegas takes place November 14-16th. There’s still time to get savings off AU passes, if you haven’t locked down your spot yet, our sneak peek into what’s happening at AU 2017 may just tempt you!
If your agency or organization is thinking of moving to BIM for your infrastructure projects you’re probably wondering where to start. The good news is you are more BIM-ready than you thought. However, that doesn’t mean you can make the move overnight, although it may take less time than you think.
Even if you’ve made the move to Building Information Modeling and are experiencing the benefits of BIM, have you ever thought “there’s got to be a better way to manage project team collaboration?” The success of a BIM project comes back to the basics of communication and information sharing.
Autodesk has produced a new eBook – a definitive guide to cloud-connected design collaboration – that provides the information you need on:
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.
