BIM: Multidisciplinary Coordination
Multidisciplinary Coordination in BIM
For many decades, the AEC community has relied on a paper-based workflow with designers working in “silos” that focused on a single project discipline or function and sequentially passing the outputs of their design decisions on to the next discipline. This isolated, sequential process created many barriers to effective collaboration and has often led to misunderstandings and mistakes requiring costly rework in the field.
Get creative with design in class
In this project, students will learn how BIM tools can be used to support a multidisciplinary design process. They will learn how to create and check a series of linked models, create reference planes and grids for different disciplines, and model MEP systems.
