Peggy Smedley chats with Pietro Ferrari, professor and program coordinator for the School of Architectural Studies at George Brown College, about BIM (building information modeling), 3D laser scanning, computer-aided manufacturing, prefabrication, and the data that ties everything together.
What really is BIM (building information modeling)? Peggy Smedley answers, and breaks it down, walking viewers through 2D, 3D, 4D, 5D, and even 6D BIM.
Peggy Smedley talks about how J.C. Cannistraro is using field technology such as total stations, tablets, and mobile apps, in conjunction with BIM (building information modeling), to better manage prefabrication in HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) construction.
Peggy Smedley sits down with employee-owned Rosendin Electric CIO Sam Lamonica. She gives a glimpse into the company—past, present, and future, and questions him on the changing marketplace for specialty contractors, BIM (building information modeling), and what the company culture is like at an employee-owned organization.
Peggy Smedley talks about the importance of ongoing training in areas such as BIM (building information modeling). She identifies an Autodesk course that can help potential BIM modelers gain greater education on how to move data from the office, to the field, to operations management.
