Introducing the Engine Room
11:30 am - 12:45 pm
Wesley Benn & Bob Weygant
BCS

Speakers: Wesley Benn & Bob Weygant

At the heart of this year’s event lies the Engine Room, a multi-purpose, central, gathering space for all activities during the Building Content Summit. Full group sessions, catering for all breaks, exhibitor spaces, and discussion areas - all occur within this space. Most importantly, however, the Engine Room is the primary space for another reason...

An attendee comes to BCS prepared to work. The Engine Room is setup with round tables and will be populated with subject matter experts – advanced software users, developer and manufacturer staff, and content creators from all AEC disciplines - who will be on call to help attendees with their work.Whether a funky nested parametric louver family in Revit, a misbehaving GDL script in ArchiCAD, or an obdurate IFC output just about anywhere, our experts will sit down and help attendees work through the trouble spots. Sometimes the work they do with a single attendee to answer a problem would be good general knowledge. The Engine Room is set up to allow ad-hoc classes to run. There will be two projection spaces with gathering space in front of them that will allow for ‘open room’ classes of 5-15 minutes each.

Perspective: Plan - Crafting a digital content foundation in early project planning and design
1:45 pm - 3:00 pm
Jorge Barrero, Gensler / HKS
BCS

Speaker:
Jorge Barrero, Gensler / HKS

Digital content in a project goes through endless transformations during its lifecycle and it is meant to serve a large number of varied users with different purposes. This scenario presents a unique challenge at the start of every project to put a strategy in place to establish best practices for how to manage, create and utilize digital assets. It’s particularly important to gain and understanding on how the content will be used in the early planning and design stages of a project to establish a relevance of use down the stream as a project moves into documentation, construction and occupancy. The goal of this session is to explore what works and what doesn’t when working and creating digital content at the early stages of a project.

Aligning Manufacturer BIM Content with Evolving Customer Needs
BCS

Speaker:
Will Ayers, Legrand

Learn about the challenges a leading electrical manufacturer faced in their efforts to develop a comprehensive BIM strategy. We'll share our experiences as we worked to achieve our objective of aligning our BIM resources with the evolving needs of multiple customer groups in the construction industry. We’ll also discuss our evolving strategy as Legrand in the US prepares to share content solutions and resources with Legrand business units around the world.

Manufacturers, information flows in content, and our missing ‘Subscriber Culture’
BCS

Speaker:
Parley Burnett, UNIFI Labs

Come participate as we take a deep dive into current manufacturing trends and examine what impact they'll have on consumers of BIM Content. We'll look at specific examples of manufacturers leveraging new investments in cloud-based information management systems, and explore how those information flows can enhance the collaboration between manufacturers and end users. Manufacturers CAN provide greater value across the entire building lifecycle by providing content that is specifically tailored to individuals and the standards they must adhere to. Let’s allow the ‘Subscriber Culture’ that we experience in nearly every other aspect of our lives to change how we think of BIM Content.

Perspective: Design - Integrated Content Delivery - Design Intent

Chris Fredi, AVAIL
BCS

Speaker:
Chris Fredi, AVAIL

From concept to construction, content drives the understanding of design intent from owners, through architects, designers and engineers to every user downstream of a project after its conception. The collaborative integration of applicable data into building content is what ultimately coalesces into the construction and experience of an owner’s vision. By manipulating digital geometry and information, designers provide the ability to understand an initially abstract idea and fill in the gaps between creation, constraint, manufacturing and execution. Through the use of content to build a digital model we gain a holistic understanding of a vision and communicate that understanding to all.

Speaker:
Amanda Comunale, Victaulic

BIM continues to infiltrate construction industry, and as the industry makes the transition toward intelligent modeling, the need for smart, high quality, active content continues to grow. Content is the nucleus of any project, and without high quality content the project loses efficiency. Victaulic understands this, and is committed to creating, validating and delivering active smart content. With over 20 years of experience, Victaulic Content Developers utilize best piping practices to produce gold-standard content for use on projects around the world. Throughout this presentation, I will share our best practices for content creation. Attendees will gain a better understanding on how information from the model effects the total life of a project, and the role that content plays in this. I will review the recent partnership that Victaulic has entered into with Autodesk and how development industry partners will impact the future of content development, and in turn the future of pipe routing.

Glimpse of the Future - Interfacing the Virtual Building
5:00 pm - 5:45 pm
Jeremy Harkins, ineni Realtime
BCS

Speaker:
Jeremy Harkins, ineni Realtime

This presentation will cover how gaming technology is currently being used by ineni Realtime to access and contextualise data related to the built environment. By linking live data from sensors and devices and integrating design and engineering documentation (such as BIM) to make a ʺvirtual spaceʺ, many efficiencies across a development can be realised. Case studies and examples will be shown of a relatively new area being coined as ʺBIM to FMʺ which help us understand the data around us in context to a devices location. The presented virtual versions of buildings are a cross-media approach to utilising virtual environments to the fullest extent of their value, and are a step along the path to ubiquitous data integrated seamlessly through VR (Virtual Reality) and eventually AR (Augmented Reality) into our lives. This is a highly visual presentation, so there will be lots of eye candy!

Standards Migration instead of Standards Assimilation: How we efficiently "move" content from one Standard to Another
BCS

Speaker:
Aaron Maller, Parallex Team

With so much time and energy spent focusing on developing ʺStandardsʺ for content to adhere to (or be built to), content manufacturers (and users alike) end up ʺpicking sidesʺ about which content they will use, based on the standards they are built to. OR, they end up investing time ʺrepackagingʺ their libraries to meet specific standards. At Parallax, we have been focusing on working on METHODS to automate (as much as possible) moving content BETWEEN standards, instead of focusing on a single Standard. We will run through examples (Revit examples), on migrating a content libraries: Subcategories (using Journals or Project Environment workflows), Parameter Name/GUID/Values (using API apps, Microsoft Excel and some formulas, and the internet), altering Component File Settings and Units (Journal Files), and Component Naming Standards (with a free program for renaming, and an API addin for reloading...)

What's in it for Me?: Addressing Stakeholder Needs to Adopt Supply Chain Innovation
BCS

Speaker:
Nathan Wood, SpectrumAEC

The integration between manufacturer's component libraries and design collaboration tools like Revit presents a significant opportunity for process efficiency and return on investment. Transforming the traditional supply chain of information between existing project stakeholders is a disruptive process that often leads to unintended consequences. By looking at each phase across the design, construction, and operations of a facility, this session will identify where industry traditions and stakeholder biases that lead to change resistance, and present a new people-first strategy in order to reach successful implementation.

Managing Global AEC Standards & Content
BCS

"

Speaker:
Matthew Anderle & John Kizior, AECOM

Managing AEC standards and content has always been difficult. Few things have wasted more hours in AEC practice than discussion over the appearance of a door tag or north arrow. Not to mention, versions of software are constantly changing, which change file types and versions, as well as capabilities. With Autodesk Revit in the mix there’s also shared parameters and view styles, and a myriad of things that get embedded in the template, or must be imported into the template. At AECOM, we also add to that the fact that we have thousands of professionals, in literally thousands of locations across the globe, with widely varying levels of access to the internet, speaking different languages and using different measuring systems, all needing to share content. Central command and control are not feasible under such conditions, and no standard or content set will be adopted unless it makes people’s jobs easier. This is the heart of AECOM’s content delivery problem, and the framework for our solution. Join us in a presentation and discussion around overcoming and managing these challenges.

Perspective: Manage - After the Hype: Is the BIM Hangover worth it?
1:00 pm - 2:15 pm
John Moebes, Crate and Barrel
BCS

Speaker:
John Moebes, Crate and Barrel

After a decade of using BIM, we are in a different place. The elite users have become worn and jaded and the technology has, perhaps, lost its ability to inspire the next generation. Will BIM become a schematic tool for producing the schematics of edgier buildings or the bloated yet anemic sets of construction documents? I will discuss this dynamic based on operational experience with internal and external architects and engineers in the execution of a global development program.

The Content Chasm
1:00 pm - 2:15 pm
Jason Bailly, HDR Architecture
BCS

Speaker:
Jason Bailly, HDR Architecture

Maintaining robust Revit content across multiple disciplines and business classes comes with its own set of challenges. See how HDR has rebooted our processes and technologies in this realm and moved out of isolation to a decentralized knowledge base. Beginning with internal consulting to determine the primary business challenges around BIM content, the recurring theme has been one in which the integration of technology is useless without an understanding of the sub-cultural nature of the way we work.

  • The Content Chasm is what exists between experts in a particular field like Lab Planning and BIM 'power-users'.
  • The Content Chasm is what exists between manufacturer provided content and lean model delivery.
  • The Content Chasm is what exists between a clients expectations and what is actually contracted.
  • The Content Chasm is what exists between the Revit Model and the BIM content source.
    To close it we must focus on:
  • Organization based on Practice and not Software
  • Establishing pride of ownership
  • Scalable solutions that work from Practice Groups to Mega Projects
  • When to buy versus when to build
  • Not being evil

The State and Future of Standards Panel

BCS

Moderator:
Sasha Reed, Bluebeam, Inc.

Panel Members:
Nathan Wood (SpectrumAEC), Chris Needham (ANZRS), Dennis Knight (Whole Building Systems), Marcus Fich (GRUNDFOS).

Our goal today is to present multiple perspectives on the topic of Standards in an effort to create meaningful dialog on where we are and where we want to be in the future. Much of what supports the work we do are definitions. Clearly defined objectives and outcomes allow us to minimize distractions, focus on achieving goals and measure our success. However in the design, building, operation, and manufacturing world, we are by our very nature complex ecosystems seeking integration to achieve a specific outcome.

If we are to integrate successfully, we need to strike a balance between top down structure and bottom up flexibility. A better understanding of the needs, perspectives and constraints of each ecosystem is a critical function to translate objectives from abstract contract language to shared value systems. We strive to provide insight into how this human focused exchange may provide clues to solve the challenges we face today and beyond.
