  3. Matt Abeles Co Founder | Managing Director A collaborative network fostering a smarter built environment. BuiltWorlds
  4. BuiltWorlds We are a collaborative network that encourages education and awareness of technology and innovation in the built industry through: • Written and video content • Monthly events • Connections with the community Our mission is to create a smarter built environment and push the $5 trillion industry forward.
  5. Emerging technologies Smart tools 3D printing Construction mobile applications Virtual reality Augmented reality BIM Drones
  6. BIM global adoption High / Very High BIM Implementation Levels (by Country)
  7. BIM standards and mandates The US General Services Administration (GSA), managing all federal buildings, has been requiring BIM through its national 3D-4D-BIM program. Created by the buildingSMART Alliance, the US National BIM Standard (NBIMS) covers exchanges between stakeholders during all phases of a facility’s lifecycle. UK government’s much talked about Level 2 BIM standards. The mandate is that by 2016 all public projects will have minimum collaborative 3D BIM targets.
  8. What types of projects benefit most from BIM? Complex projects with multiple stakeholders that can significantly benefit from: Improved efficiency Increased clarity Fewer project reworks Reduced waste and cost
  9. Adopting BIM is a change in both company behavior and process
  10. There are BIM adoption challenges 70% 70% of contractors have adopted BIM in North America over the past 10 years Yet only 30% of projects actually implement and use BIM technology 30%
  11. Challenges of realizing the full benefits of BIM project-wide • Increasing project complexity • Information silos • Software cost & accessibility • Owners requirements • Training & implementation • Determining the activities and BIM processes to be adopted • Defining and controlling model & data structure and versioning • Facilitating efficient and effective collaboration and communication
  12. Overcoming challenges Standardized processes Training and education Project-wide access to models and data Tailored implementation by organization and project
  13. BIM success study “BIM is a much higher value-add to our customer, at the end of the day.” — Ricardo Khan, Director of Integrated Construction Mortenson has implemented BIM in vertical projects. AN EARLY ADVOCATE They are applying best practices • On infrastructure projects • Leveraging BIM’s robust data to automate processes NEW APPLICATIONS BIM has improved: • Decision-making process • Project accessibility for all stakeholders • Ability to share intellectual data • Communication across the team RESULTS
  14. Sean VonFeldt VP, Program/Project Controls and Construction Management Triunity Engineering & Management, Inc. “Approach the unknown with caution, confidence and calculated control.”
  15. About Triunity Adding value to our community and our industry • Founded in 2003 • Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort – New Jersey Transit • Denver RTD’s FasTracks Program • MBTA Green Line Extension Project (GLX), MBTA, Boston, MA • Sound Transit East Link Extension, Seattle, WA • Wastewater Treatment Plant, Denver Water Board, Denver, CO
  16. Owner’s rep on mega global infrastructure capital programs • Currently: RTD FasTracks • Previous projects • London Underground PPPs • Network Rail WCRM • AT&T Nexgen • Denver International Airport
  17. My history with BIM • Early BIM adopter – early 2000s • “Building” as a verb, not a noun – to appeal to the “horizontal” or infrastructure construction world, (same as it applies to vertical ‘buildings’) • Tying 3D project models to CPM Schedule activities (4D) and Cost/Budget estimating, planning and accounting (5D) • Seeking to enable unlimited access to the full Program/Project team for continuous improvement in communication, collaboration, coordination of all planned and measured data.
  18. State of Infrastructure Industry - before BIM and Aconex • Large Infrastructure owners typically only have 2D plans and profiles of their current assets. • All typically have a need for better collaboration during design development
  19. With BIM and Aconex • Public owner (airport) required design data to comply with FAA mandate. • Airport acquires 2D plans from adjacent public owners to incorporate into its overall 3D/BIM model. • Using Connected BIM in Aconex, the Airport and adjacent public infrastructure owners each had secure access to the information they needed.
  20. How owners can use Aconex to leverage the BIM models provided by their consultants • Use the Aconex BIM module for visualization and collaborative project team discussions around the BIM IFC models provided by their consultants, developed in Revit and other authoring tools. • Attach project documents from Aconex to the various objects (assets/sub-assets) in the models to be shared and reviewed with O&M teams.
  21. Key benefits of future BIM for owner agencies • “Single source of truth” • Improved accuracy • Timeliness of communication • Constant consciousness of Value Engineering opportunities/necessities. • Provides transparency of information to all organizational stakeholders • Provides a structure for ‘clear and present’ accountability, thereby reducing risk.
  22. BIM best practices • Align BIM to project processes • Procurement • Construction/Installation • Asset management • System O&M projects • Initiate BIM early in the design process • Create a central repository for all BIM (IFC) models
  23. Results to be achieved by owners • Direct cost reductions Value Engineering coordination, more efficient information flow, decision making, schedule acceleration, dispute avoidance, and rework reductions. • Development of Standard BIM Specification Standard BIM specification and implementation plan for all new facility and infrastructure capital projects. Improved decisions Project-wide Reduced rework Fewer disputes and errors

  1. Janet: Matt will start today’s session with an industry landscape and provide a brief overview of BuiltWorlds and their mission of fostering a smarter built environment through knowledge sharing and promoting a deeper understanding of the new and emerging tech applications and possibilities that empower us all. After Matt provides the landscape, Sean Vonfeldt with RTD will talk about how RTD is continuously reviewing and improving their business processes and implementing solutions like Aconex to best optimize the benefits of BIM and meet their business goals. We will conclude with John Barkwell providing an overview and demonstration of the Aconex system, showing us how to optimize the benefits of BIM across entire project teams and throughout the project lifecycle. John is the Aconex Director of BIM, who has worked in the industry for 25 years. We will take questions at the end, so please feel free to send those through at any time using the questions function on your Go To Webinar control panel. Let’s get started. I will turn the webinar over to Matt who will give us an overview of the current industry trends and some of the challenges BIM addresses. [CLICK]
  2. Matt: Thank you Janet. I am very happy to be here today to share what we are seeing in the industry and some exciting results achieved using BIM to improve how projects are delivered. I’d like to start out by sharing a few slides about innovation in our industry, trends and challenges then tell you a bit more about BuiltWorlds and how we work with BIM and organizations across the US, then I’ll wrap up with specific examples and results. [CLICK]
  3. Matt: As Janet mentioned in the introduction, BuiltWorlds is a collaborative network. We founded BuiltWorlds to bring additional awareness and education on innovative ways to use technology in the built industry. To help push this critical $5 trillion global industry forward, we provide written and video content, live events across the US and we work to be a central hub to facilitate connections. [CLICK]
  4. Matt: Emerging technologies are part of most of our daily lives and many of these technologies are disruptive, taking time and resources and changing mind sets to reap the benefits. I would put BIM among these important emerging technologies. Let’s take a closer look at BIM adoption. [CLICK]
  5. Matt: As you can see from this graph there is a significant increase in BIM adoption around the world. The benefits of digital optimization are increasingly leading governments, local councils and facility owners, to mandate BIM on their projects. Just one example is the UK governments much talked about Level 2 BIM standards. The mandate is that by 2016 all public projects will have minimum collaborative 3D BIM targets. [CLICK]

  10. Matt: I would like to keep a slide on the challenges of gaining the benefits project-wide. I can get a new image. [CLICK]
  11. Matt: Defining project BIM process upfront Consistent requirements across the project team Ongoing training as new members join the project team Central system to support project-wide access to the model Aligning the BIM model to all project phases (design, procurement, handover…) As much as possible we apply the successes of one project to another. This helps to shape and define our processes. As demonstrated earlier in the model map, the success of a project is contingent on project team members having access to the models and visibility into the models. The ability to analyse models and data is hugely beneficial for our organization. We are able to tap into the project through exploring the foundations of the models which are databases at their heart. Only then can we reveal the true health of the project models. And importantly we need to remain dynamic to be able to alter workflows to suit specific people and projects. [CLICK]
  12. Matt: Any ROI? Reduced an approval cycle by x% etc. Thank you for the opportunity to be here today. I’ll turn the presentation over to Sean VonFeldt from RTD and I’ll stay on the line for Q&A. [CLICK]
  13. Sean: Thank you Matt. It was great to hear what you’re seeing in the industry. I have been working with the Denver Regional Transportation District for past 8 years and in my role I measure and help control Scope, Schedule and Budget for the $5.5 Billion FasTracks Program. Let me tell you a little about my background on Mega Infrastructure programs and projects. [CLICK]
  14. Sean: As you can see, all of these programs cover vast geographies (or sizable footprints) and interface with multiple public and private stakeholders, and I can assure you their projects definitely follow the trend of increasingly complex infrastructure projects. RTD and Greenline It is complex projects that gain the most benefit from BIM. [CLICK]
  15. Sean: I have had a long career working as an owners rep. To give you some background of my background, I have worked with Parsons Birkerhoff and Parsons Brinkerhoff Ltd. As you can see, all of these programs cover vast geographies (or sizable footprints) and interface with multiple public and private stakeholders, and I can assure you their projects definitely follow the trend of increasingly complex infrastructure projects. It is complex projects that gain the most benefit from BIM. [CLICK]
  16. Sean: As a Programwide/Projectwide Controls Manager working for various mega public infrastructure owners, you might say I’m an “early adopter” in recognizing the potential benefits of using 3D project models to collaborate Scope elements (i.e Transit Assets) with Master Program CPM Schedule activities (4D) and the respective Cost & Budget (5D) data for estimating, planning and accounting. My early adoption ambitions to tie all Scope, Schedule, Cost and Documentation configurations together go back as far as early 2000’s when I worked at London Underground. I have been working with my RTD colleagues, strategizing BIM implementation at RTD FasTracks since circa 2010… and we are now in our 2nd year of looking at BM implementation for process improvements on the owner side in Design/Build projects like RTD FasTracks, including working with a graduate student who was working in this area. Including value to as built dataand handover to O&M for ongoing facilities management. All public agencies are engaging in ever-increasingly complex projects, RTD is finding it needs to succinctly and transparently collaborate Scope requirements (i.e Plans and Specs for Transit Assets) with an integrated Master Schedule (4D) and with Cost/Budget Control analysis (5D), as well as, ideally capture all “as-built records” pertinent to O&M, for hand-over from Capital Projects into Operations. … also a need for a centralized work-flow platform to enable unlimited access by agency personnel to its Business Operability Obligations Management (BOOM) processes. [CLICK]
  17. Sean: A couple real scenarios on projects in my past… On one design/build project including both roadway and railway bridges, all bridge designs were inadvertently developed using roadway bridge specifications for the foundations. Lack of visibility and collaboration of the bridge designs and design requirements by all relevant stakeholders, allowed error to go unnoticed. Impact: Some bridges were completely built before the design error was caught, and some had to be re-designed, demolished and reconstructed. More eyes may have caught the issue earlier, saving the contractor significant time and money. Others: Unidentified underground utilities (Utility companies with known easements not invited to participate in design reviews). Bottom Line: Better collaborative visualization during design development (as with use of BIM processes and a central SSoT “visualization” tool like Aconex BIM Module) can help prevent errors from going unchecked and unnoticed. Project-wide access to the model. [CLICK]
  18. Sean: Adjacent public owner (airport) required as-built design data for their BIM model, to comply with a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulatory mandate, and to allow operations of others’ facilities within their jurisdiction. Simultaneously, other public and private entities are looking for a way to collaborate with the airport for as-built data for various rooms/facilities provided for their tenant fit-out and occupancy, but not owned by them. Issue: Airport has a 3D/BIM model of all facilities on their property, but 3rd Parties only have 2D plans, profiles and sections for their facilities, structures, overhead power, underground utilities, etc… Resolution: Using Connected BIM in Aconex, the Airport can share a portion of their BIM model for other’s use and reference during service operations and maintenance. Likewise, the other 3rd parties are able to provide 2D CAD drawings to the Airport for their use in completing the BIM model required by FAA for operations. They need to have a complete model including all interfaces, such as rail infrastructure going into the airport. Need to accept all drawing and model formats, and view and comment on them, and connected BIM allows that. [CLICK]
  19. Sean: Perspective of the infrastructure owner/operator: BIM vs. Connected BIM True BIM development is all on the design/build contractor. Owner Agency want to be allowed to see or visualize and “capture reality” about their projects and assets… Goal is to: All project stakeholders collaborate and talk to the 65% design model – attach docs and comments to it. Then when 90% model is published and supersedes, still keep or promote those attached docs where appropriate… likewise for the 100% and Issue for Construction models. Needs to keep the history of design development for planning and engineering’s use, but only hand-over the accurate/relevant “as-built” model and cost/schedule/quality data to the O&M or FM group for their use during operations through the ongoing life of the asset. [CLICK]
  20. Sean: “Single source of truth” for collaboration of project/asset technical information. Promotes accuracy (many eyes validating/verifying) Promotes timeliness of communication for coordination purposes Promotes constant consciousness of Value Engineering opportunities/necessities. Provides transparency of pertinent project/asset information to all organizational stakeholders, internal and external. Provides a structure for ‘clear and present’ accountability another favorite quote of mine… “Risk is… without accountability” Each designer/builder has ownership and control of the information provided for the asset/system/discipline they are supplying. [CLICK]
  21. Sean: Best Practice #1: Important to establish a BIM protocol from the beginning or a BIM Implementation Plan which will align your BIM models to your key business and project delivery processes RTD developed a scheme in 2013 with assistance of a graduate student intern, who was writing his Master’s thesis on “BIM for Infrastructure” Scheme: Scope vs BIM Development… whereby we would establish a correlation between Capital Program/Project WBS and BIM LOD, in both: Levels of Definition (design details required for procurement and installation), and Levels of Development (design development from major Asset/System to sub-Assets/sub-Systems) Why?… essentially borne out of a necessity for collaboration and integration of technical information, from inception of Capital Projects into Asset Management (O&M). Best Practice #2: BIM>BAM for Asset Management… Establish a master Business Asset Model (BAM) in a central enterprise GIS system, which is a repository for all independent BIM (IFC) models, for all assets created by capital projects. In 2014 I started a trial use of Aconex BIM Module as a pilot BAM for any all BIM models created for FasTracks projects. Why?… BIM repository and viewer are already available with Aconex; easy to use; all basic info/data collaboration functionality. [CLICK]
  22. Sean: By implementing a central secure collaboration platform, Owners are able to benefit from value engineering coordination, more efficient information flow, decision making, schedule acceleration, dispute avoidance, and rework reductions. also assists owners in developing a Standard BIM Specification and BIM Implementation Plan to be piloted on the next major facility or infrastructure capital project. Now, I’ll hand the presentation over to John Barkwell with Aconex. [CLICK]
