Résumé de la présentation

As the title would suggest, what owners want (need) out of their BIM is worlds away from what the architects, engineers and contractors need to build the owner’s building.

This session will discuss BIM-related challenges from both the AEC professional and owner’s perspective. We will also discuss why each side has their own unique takes on what is required with in a BIM, and why. Once an understanding of the unique needs is established, a roadmap can be developed that will enable collaboration through design, construction, commissioning and facilities management.

A hopeful outcome of this session is to shed some light on the AEC vs Owner challenges, and how each side could assist the other. The gap between the AEC and the Owner need to be closed to truly take BIM out of this world.
Review the learning objectives below for some of the ideas we will explore during this session.

Learning Objectives

  • Learning that what owners need from a BIM is very different than what AEC professionals needs from a BIM
  • What is needed if your BIM is intended for the complete building lifecycle
  • How technology allows for accessing of information from a building model throughout the building lifecycle
  • What works for one owner doesn’t work for all owners (Private vs. Government vs. Campus/Institutional)

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
