ARCHICAD & the Commercial Builder
June 8, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
ALL MEMBERS – In this session, explore how General Contractors can utilize ARCHICAD to help plan and execute a commercial construction project. Learn about each role making up the construction team, their associated data types used to report the project status, and how to combine workflows so each contributor adds their individual part to the greater whole. Learn how to organize 2D & 3D content from both design teams and subcontractors, including PDF’s, DWGs, IFC and other common 3D formats, and perform enhanced design reviews of a projects document sets. This session will demonstrate how to link ArchiCAD directly to Excel as a method of performing model based estimating and scheduling (4D & 5D). Manage submittal shop drawings directly within ARCHICAD, and prepare xyz points for field layout. Learn how Bluebeam can be used as a dashboard to explore the various types of drawings and reports being produced from within ARCHICAD. From pursuits through preconstruction, procurement through project closeout, this session will cover several different ways construction managers can leverage ARCHICAD to achieve greater results.
