In the AEC industry, it is important not to popularize the idea that BIM is an “easy button.” This is especially true when helping subcontractors make the transition to BIM for the first time. Rather, we want to promote the usefulness of the tool by showing how it aids in communication and coordination through visualization. During this presentation, we will discuss workflows with Revit and Navisworks that streamline the coordination process, as well as communication strategies we have successfully used with subcontractors on recent Modulus projects.

About the Presenters:

Jenn Thomas received her B.A. in Architecture from UC Berkeley.
Sara Troy received her B.A. from California Polytechnic University – San Luis Obispo.

Both women have more than 6 years of experience using BIM in the AEC industry. Both are BIM Project Managers for Modulus Consulting, a national BIM services firm headquartered in San Francisco, CA. They specialize in structural, architectural, and MEP modeling in Revit as well as BIM coordination management. They have worked on a wide range of projects, such as a new zoo in Qatar, a micro–processor manufacturing facility, modular affordable housing, high–rises, hospitals, and corporate offices and have successfully helped designers, GCs, and subcontractors make the transition to BIM.
