BIM experts from Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc., will be presenting at the upcoming USC School of Architecture at an event titled, Practical BIM: The Sixth Annual USC BIM Symposium.
This event will feature a session on “Open BIM: Real Interoperability, Practical Collaboration,” presented by Architect Product Specialist Jeffrey W. Ouellette, Assoc. AIA and Jeff Server, Assoc. AIA, ASLA, LEED AP. Their session will provide insight into Open BIM, a universal approach to the collaborative design, realization and operation of buildings based on open standards and workflows.
Open BIM is an initiative of buildingSMART and several leading software vendors using the open buildingSMART Data Model. Its supporters include software vendors such as Nemetschek Vectorworks, AEC practices (designers, engineers and constructors), as well as building owners.
More information about the July 13 Practical BIM symposium, including specific time and location details for Ouellette and Server’s presentation, will be available soon at http://www.uscarchitecture.com/bim.
Ouellette will continue the BIM discussion on Saturday, July 14, as he presents at BIM and Process Change: Tested Techniques and New Innovations, a USC School of Architecture Executive Education Summer Session.
Ouellette’s session, which takes place from 4:15 to 5:00 p.m. PDT and is one of only a handful of sessions scheduled for the one-day event, is called, “Digital Connections: Better Designs, Better Buildings, and Better Practices with Better BIM Interoperability?” His presentation reviews the open standards technology available for BIM and how it is being applied today around the world by designers, project teams and owners to elicit the greatest value from the process of design, construction and management using modern digital technologies.
