How do we go about documenting our projects? From the small details to the bigger picture, the role of content and standards.

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?
13:00 - 14:15
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
13:00 - 14:15
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

Panel Members:

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.

We have all this data, so now what?
DD

Speaker: John Mack, XL Construction

You have a client that is asking for the world in regards to BIM. They want everything in regards to data in the model. You jump through hoops and do exactly what they asked for; all the while stressing that you will not deliver exactly what they are asking for. In the end you turn over the model with the data and they do nothing with it or ask you for something else. Oh yeah, and they want it for free.

Does this sound familiar? How frustrating is this?

Some of the topics that will be touched on in this discussion are:

  • A brief history of how data was used since my inception into the modeling world, starting from the early 1990's to the present
  • What has worked with model data
  • Why does it sometimes feel like we are going backwards in time, when we are trying to improve deliveries with data
    • What can we apply today from what we learned in the past
  • Why can't data be software agnostic, or can it be
  • Can processes we learned in LEAN Construction help gather and deliver data
  • Ideas to obtain customer values for the project turnover

We are getting to a time where it seems an entire project can be designed, coordinated, managed, executed and turned over to the client from a single location, using a single file. The biggest flaw is the lack of early communication, resulting in more conflicts later in the design process. Even if this cannot be achieved the way we imagine it, we need to change our workflows to help get us closer to delivering on this concept. We need to figure out how to share data, rather than start over by regathering it in our own way at each handoff.

During the discussion we will touch on these topics in effort to get all of us inspired to do more to create better sharing of the data we collect and not start over each time we make a transition during the projects.

  • Benefit of getting design partners and trade partners to collaborate early on project
  • Ideas on how to store and use data from BIM have worked in the past
  • What has worked well in the mechanical trade that we can apply to all

Data-Driven Interoperability for Synchronous Design and Interrogation
DD

Speaker: Brian Ringley, Woods Bagot

Recent advances in software data exchange paradigms have made interoperable workflows more seamless than ever as an integral aspect of model-driven project delivery and digital prototyping culture. This presentation will begin with a comparative analysis and overview of shifting trends in interoperable workflows, from Revit Categories via third party Grasshopper add-ins, to the transfer of lower-level geometry types made possible by Dynamo, to the dynamic exchange of generic model data via Flux, whose cloud-based visual programming editor and JSON representation of building information will be demonstrated.

When the medium of data exchange is sufficiently generic, ad-hoc tactics of geometry transactions can be replaced by a more robust strategy of database queries. Generic, web-based data exchange also allows for the integration of new data sources beyond traditional building information. Integrated task management will be addressed through the demonstration of the Proving Ground’s Trello add-in for Revit and Rhino, and examples of serialization of complex data types will be presented as a means to new methods of remote solving, tool deployment, collaboration, scaling, and version control.

However, as interoperable workflows become more sophisticated, they tend to have an adverse effect on model accessibility. Therefore attention should now be given to simplified, bespoke user interfaces, heads-up displays, and information dashboards to hide the inner-workings of complex scripting and visual programming routines, while reinforcing the flow of data from upstream parameters to downstream deliverables. Demonstrations of relevant tools will include the Dynamo Customizer, HumanUI, and Conduit, which all work to increase users’ access to the model, no matter their computational skill, team role, or point at which they engage in the project.

The presentation will conclude with the various successes and pitfalls of the Woods Bagot Global Design Technology Team’s integration of interoperable workflows on several globally significant projects over the past year, emphasizing the importance of being able to simultaneously design, document, and deliver at any stage of the project through the mastery of generic, consistent data queries.

Learning objectives:

  1. Exchange data over the web using Flux's web service and platform add-ins
  2. Read and write JSON representations of building information
  3. Build custom user interfaces and dashboards for parametric models using freely available 3rd party software

Jumping the Shark - BIM Data from the Owners perspective
DD

Speaker: Guy Messick, IA Interior Architects

In the world of interior architecture where Facilities Data from BIM is not yet happening, what is the point of a robust Building Information Model? This presentation will focus on what IA has discovered in relevance of data across the lifecycle of architectural interiors on a global scale, and the strategies you can use to develop your own workflow with your clients.

A critical aspect of the presentation is forming the business case to make these processes financially viable.

Focus:

  • Site Survey and Observation - data collection from the beginning
  • Programming and Workplace Strategies - Taking site and program data and translating into human terms
  • Data in Design - how do you connect the program data to design, assist in driving the design and documentation, and prepare for construction
  • BIM in Team Environments - Interiors engaged in Integrated Projects with Contractors? We explore how this can work, and work well.
  • Post Occupancy - what is important to clients? We will data sets that focus on business assets vs. building components.

Learning Objectives:

  1. When data continuity is critical and worth spending time on, and when it isn't.
  2. How Revit works as a database, from programming to materiality to visual
  3. Managing your clients' critical data, being a leader on the project and not losing your shirt.
