3D Engineered Models

Three-dimensional engineered models for construction (or just 3D models) are among a few select technologies being promoted by the FHWA Every Day Counts program. Our focus is on helping owner-agencies, designers, and construction contractors with little or no experience in 3D engineered models get started in implementing this technology.

Webinar Series

A series of eight webinars have been developed to assist the FHWA's transportation partners in adopting 3D Engineered Models for Construction. Participants will hear how contractors incorporate 3D engineered models in their workflow of bidding and preparing to execute construction. The next webinar is Overcoming Impediments to Using 3D Engineered Models for Construction on September 10, 2014 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. Eastern
