This webinar is part of the Business of Architecture Academy
This webinar will explore the challenges, solutions, and creative options available to architects and development planners looking to improve the modern community, specifically through the use of 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. In urban housing where space it tight, the use of BIM software can help ensure that internal systems don't clash and that structural elements align perfectly. It also helps with ongoing operations and maintenance, saving time and reducing waste. Speakers in this webinar will discuss both the challenges and opportunities in the landscape of multifamily housing design, and provide examples of how by embracing BIM, urban housing designers and builders can optimize space, reduce design errors, and enhance long-term efficiency. This technology-driven approach not only streamlines the construction process but also sets the foundation for accurate as-built models, facilitating ongoing operations, maintenance, and future renovations.
- Identify key challenges in urban housing design, such as limited space and the need for accommodating multiple systems and amenities.
- Discuss the increasing complexity of multifamily construction and the role of BIM in addressing design intricacies.
- Apply clash detection techniques in BIM to identify and resolve conflicts among different architectural elements and systems before construction begins.
- Assess the long-term advantages of BIM beyond construction, including its role in ongoing operations, maintenance, and future renovations of urban housing buildings.
