Interactive Web-Based Model Viewing - Part Tres

After over a year of sitting idle, I had been fiddling with this app a bit more today. It should be working in the live now in the second post in this series. It uses one of the sample projects from RAC 2011 - Check it out.

If you are unable to see the model in the window - try signing out of blogger an viewing it as anonymous - I have had a little trouble viewing when I am signed in but it works like a charm when I am not.

BIM Implementation, Adaptive Re-Use, Multi-Firm Collaboration and FM Prep - In 6-9 Months? I must be crazy!

I'm nuts. Is this even possible?! Well I'll let you know in 6-9 months!

I've been asked by a Fortune 500 Bio-Tech company in Minneapolis to implement BIM in their facilities department with the ultimate goal of a sustaining Facilities Management Program.

Here's the immediate ultimate goal:

In 6-9 months...
  • Implement Revit - AutoCAD Standards conversion, staff training, etc.
  • Survey and document existing conditions of 200,000 sq ft warehouse for an adaptive re-use project
  • Assist in-house design team with design process
  • Coordinate between in-house design team and architect of record's firm as well as design consultants
  • Post-construction surveying and documentation
  • Implement facilities management tools
In the coming weeks I'll expand on these goals as well as in the next few months I'll post my progressions (more likely my aggressions) as I go through this process.
