Virtual Revit Pub Night
September 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Save-the-date for our Canada-wide Virtual Revit Pub Night!
Enjoy our quarterly Virtual Revit Pub Night in the comfort of your own home! Grab a drink, get relaxed and schmooze about all things BIM and Revit. SolidCAD’s goal is to raise BIM awareness, spread new ideas and grow the Revit community across Canada.
Speakers & Topics:
Speaker: Richard Shaw, OAA, MRAIC, B.Arch B.A Principal at Strasman Architects Inc.
Richard Shaw specializes in delivering complex building types with institutional and private client groups. He currently leads the firm’s health care design activities for various hospitals and senior’s housing. Richard brings to the team an ability to recognize, develop and resolve creative design solutions, through engaging clients and end users in collaborative design processes. This ability stems from his experience garnered as a key team member on numerous challenging large and small scale projects combined with his continuing ambition to create inspiring and highly liveable environments.
Topic: Where CAD is still King: CAD vs Revit for Design Build Pursuits
Strasman Architects (SAI) are a fully BIM-integrated architecture studio, specialized in design for transit facilities. As transit specialists, the firm regularly earns work through Design-Build procurement. In this procurement model, speed of design, limited budget, and the ability to make multiple major changes to the design quickly and easily has been critical to our success. Using the TTC Rutherford Station project as a case study, SAI examines why CAD is still our go-to program for architecture during the Design-Build pursuit phase, and asks – how can Revit compete?
Speaker: Aziz Dhamani, BIM Manager at Z Modular
Z Modular is your one-stop shop for modular buildings and services, offering a more complete factory solution than other offsite construction systems. We will help you reduce the cost of design, fabrication and building assembly with fully finished modular buildings – that’s how we MAKE IT eZ.
We’re proud to be a division of Zekelman Industries, the largest independent steel pipe and tube manufacturer in North America. With a standardized production process that reduces risk, eliminates waste and enhances ROI for our customers, we’re doing our part to support Zekelman’s mission to MAKE IT eZ.
Topic: zModular BIM Ecosystem
The idea of BIM Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) for a building lifecycle in a modular concept is one that starts on a journey with Industrialized Construction (IC) on the path of Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) and robotics automation for production. This presentation will look into a high level understanding of single source of truth to BIM model from conceptualization to manufacture and delivery. How Revit becomes central 3D data source on BIM360 cloud for a digital twin building methodology. A design workflow in Revit that speaks to construction documentation, shop drawings, visualization and operations.
