Speaking at this year's Autodesk University London event, Dr Stephen Hamil, Director of Research and Innovation at NBS, presents Practical Examples of How to Develop and Coordinate Information on a BIM Project.

The session explores:

  • How to agree who is developing what information and when on a BIM project
  • How Revit users can standardise their BIM objects
  • How Revit users can coordinate specifications and models
  • How the cloud is changing the way that we collaborate and how Forge can help

Stephen shows in practical detail how  project teams can collaborate to develop information on a BIM project. He starts by looking at setting up a plan of work to give clarity on which team members are delivering what information and when. The session goes on to look at how designers can develop their designs using standardised BIM objects in Revit. Practical examples are then be given on how to link these objects digitally to the associated specification to better coordinate this information and reduce risk. The session finishes by exploring the role of the cloud and big data in future workflows and show practical examples of how the Autodesk Forge platform can accelerate this.
