Nemetschek Vectorworks will host BIM Camps in New York and San Francisco in November. These sessions will provide 4 AIA/CES/HSW or LA CES PDH and offer skills needed to adopt BIM workflows.
“There is no question that open standards-based BIM is the way the world is moving,” says Deke Smith, FAIA, Executive Director of the Building Seismic Safety Council and buildingSMART Alliance™. “Getting a good understanding of how to use IFC-based BIM [Industry Foundation Class - ISO 16739] will give designers a leg up on the competition.”
What’s in BIM Camp?
BIM Camp attendees will learn the skills they need to successfully implement BIM workflows into their practices, better understand how IFC-based standards benefit design teams, create sustainable and high-performing designs and collaborate through OpenBIM. Attendees will also receive a BIM Survival Kit, loaded with presentation materials and other resources. Focus issues will be:
- Equip Yourself — What is BIM?
- Where am I on the BIM Path?
- Big BIM: Description and Case Study
- Small Green BIM
- Legal Issues in BIM
- Site Planning Workflows and BIM
- Plugging Structural Analysis and Design into the BIM Workflow
The first BIM Camp takes place on Thursday, 1 November, 2012, in New York City, from 4:00 – 8:00pm. The second session will be offered on Friday, 9 November, 2012, in San Francisco, from 10:00am – 2:00pm. Times listed are local times. Additional networking events are planned around each BIM Camp.
