Résumé de la présentation

The Lion's Gate Hospital Power Plant Replacement was the first job we've encountered that had a contractual BIM requirement. The two main challenges of the job were the retrofit of the existing building, and the complexity of the new power plant. We will be exploring the lessons learned from this job, and some of the innovative technologies we've used to meet project goals.

The learning objectives will be:

  • What contractual BIM means for a job? What are the challenges/ benefits, and how does it affect the rest of the team?‍
  • Technique used for laser scanning of a long corridor and other challenges relating to existing spaces.
  • How to effectively collaborate with other stakeholders (GC, Design team, Owner, TSBC)
  • Challenges of powerplant design (equipment access, additional control panels for boilers, support and platform design.)

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.
