DIALOG Presentations at BiLT Conference

DIALOG Presentations at BiLT Conference

Two DIALOGers from our Design Technology team just came back from presenting at the BiLT Conference. This is a technology conference that used to be more focused on Revit, but has expanded into much more in recent years. As BiLT says, “BILT is an annual event, run in multiple regions around the globe, designed to cater to the needs of those who design, build, operate and maintain our built environment. As a community of professionals, it is dedicated to improving the way industry works together.”

Krigh Bachmann, our Manager of Design Technology, gave two presentations: “Speaking a Common Language – Lessons Learned from BIM Level 2 and 8 Years in the UK” and “Shared Coordinates… Because After All These Years I Still Don’t Get It”, which made it into BiLT’s top-10 list! Melonie Beskowiney, Design Technology Specialist from our Edmonton studio, gave a presentation called “Transitioning Your Landscape Team From AutoCAD to Revit.”

Read more about their presentations below, and check out their handouts to learn more. We’re proud to have great ambassadors like Krigh and Melonie committed to advancing the field and sharing their knowledge with others in the BIM community.

 

 

 

 

Speaking a Common Language – Lessons Learned from BIM Level 2 and 8 Years in the UK

  • By Krigh Bachmann
  • How do you coordinate something like BIM when everyone is talking about something different? We will look at the UK’s BIM Level 2, the language and standards that it got right, and why it has hained so much international attention by clients, owners, and the rest of the AEC industry.
  • Key learning outcomes:
    • Understand what BIM Level 2 is and the different components of it
    • Understand how BIM Level 2 helped in engaging with clients, operations and facilities management
    • Identify what worked well about BIM Level 2 and what does not

Shared Coordinates… Because After All These Years I Still Don’t Get It

  • By Krigh Bachmann
  • This presentation made into BiLT’s Top-10 list! #8 out off 99 presentations!
  • In an effort to reveal the system behind it all, this session will be a focused look at how Shared Coordinates work, and how users can utilize it to better coordinate their projects not only in the vacuum of Revit, but in real world too.
  • Key learning outcomes:
    • To understand how Revit’s shared coordinate system works
    • To learn how to properly manipulate and use the shared coordinates within a file and between files
    • To learn how to apply shared coordinates specifically when dealing with project using real world coordinate systems

Transitioning Your Landscape Team From AutoCAD to Revit

  • By Melonie Beskowiney
  • Transitioning your landscape team into Revit requires a lot of planning. This course will show the progression that DIALOG implemented to successfully bring a discipline that traditionally works in 2D into a more collaborative environment, with Revit as the tool to drive that success.
  • Key learning outcomes:
    • Learn how to transition a landscape disciplline into Revit
    • Develop strategies for creating librarires, templates and training
    • Understanding benefits and limitations of working in Revit on integrated projects
