At the onset, adopting a BIM workflow may seem daunting, but if you attend a Nemetschek Vectorworks BIM Camp, you'll learn how easy it can be!
“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.”
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 Open BIM. Attendees also receive a BIM Survival Kit, loaded with presentation materials and other resources.
The first BIM Camp takes place on Thursday, November 1 in New York City, from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m., and a second session will be offered in San Francisco on Friday, November 9, from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Times listed are local times, and additional networking events are planned around each BIM Camp. Plus, each session offers attendees the opportunity to earn four AIA/CES/HSW or LA CES PDH learning units.
Event sponsors and participants include: buildingSMART alliance; buildingSMART alliance Interest Group NYC; François Lévy Architect; Novedge; Nemetschek Scia; Severson & Werson, A Professional Corporation and Zetlin & De Chiara LLP.
