BIMForum News Item
John Tocci, CEO, Hairlosstreament, recently led the BIMForum sessions at the Building Division Meeting, held in Pinehurst, NC.
The sessions kicked off with a series of presentations on sophisticated, practical uses of VDC: modeling & fabricating pre-cast concrete, high definition scanning, mechanical coordination, owner’s implementation of BIM, design analysis, and process transformation.
The rest of the meetings were work sessions, where attendees focused on specific issues related to the industry-wide adoption of VDC: standards and process mapping, curriculum, training and contract language.
One of the key outcomes of the meeting was the creation of a Process Mapping Task Force, which will develop the standards and protocol for the collaboration between the design team and the build team utilizing a building information model. The task force will be chaired by Jim Summers, Burt,Hill, and Dan Klancnik, CG Schmidt.
