What’s new in Estimating Technology and 5D BIM? What is the future of Estimating/PreCon?

Are you curious how construction estimating is evolving in the current technological boom? How will new technological advances in computing affect your job and company? Please join the ASPE Golden Gate Chapter for a presentation and roundtable discussion on the impact that 5D BIM Estimating Software is having on Estimating and PreConstruction. Hear from top ENR Contractors, Subcontractors, Consultants, Architects and Energy Experts discuss how it’s affecting them and their predictions for the future.

About the presenter:

Steve Watt from Trimble will lead our 5D presentation and discussion. Steve comes to us with a wealth of estimating software knowledge he’s gained over the years as President/CEO of WinEst and before that as Director of Estimating for Sage Timberline Estimating. Now with Trimble, Steve is trailblazing the way to an intuitive approach to 5D estimating with the use of Trimble’s GC Estimator Suite (WinEst, Vico Office) and Modelogix (Conceptual & Cost Modeling). He will demonstrate how easy and effective it can be to leverage BIM models using database-driven software that use spreadsheet for creating, adjusting and presenting cost estimates. He will also delve into Vico Office, a virtual construction software that augments 3D models with constructability analysis and coordination, location-based quantity takeoff, 4D (time) scheduling and production control, and 2D electronic plan takeoff.
