Robins & Morton Earns Autodesk BIM Experience Award
Autodesk Revit Architecture, Autodesk Revit Structure, Autodesk Revit MEP software, Autodesk Navisworks Manage software
Firm Used Building Information Modeling Process to Address Constructability Issues on More Than 35 Projects
Autodesk, Inc., a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, announced that Robins & Morton has been awarded an Autodesk BIM Experience Award. The firm, a top United States construction contractor, is being honored for its use of a Building Information Modeling (BIM) process to more efficiently manage preconstruction and construction, and help drive leaner construction practices for complex projects.
The award also recognizes Robins & Morton for:
The application of Autodesk BIM software on more than 35 projects to help identify and address constructability issues before they happen Employing green building principles to help reduce construction waste;
the application of a BIM digital design-to-fabrication workflow to reduce material waste during fabrication and construction phases Leadership in the promotion of BIM to local organizations and industry groups.
Other innovative applications of a BIM process with Autodesk Navisworks Manage for this project included:
Use of advanced laser scanning to generate 3D as-built models for the arena seating;
The entire bowl was scanned in less than two hours, and the point cloud data was entered into the Autodesk Navisworks Manage model to help check that all elements of the seating would be accurately constructed;
Generation of a 4D construction simulation of the precast stadia, the long span roof trusses and the cranes helped the team to synchronize the movements of the cranes with the erection of the trusses, particularly during the final construction sequences.
BIM is an integrated process for exploring a project’s key physical and functional characteristics digitally before it’s built, helping to deliver projects faster and more economically, while minimizing environmental impact.
