3D Engineered Models for Construction Webinars

One of the technologies for the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Every Day Counts (EDC) initiative is 3D Engineered Models for Construction. A series of eight webinars have been developed to assist the FHWA's transportation partners in adopting this proven technology. The webinars are given in a "cradle to grave" sequence. Participants will hear how contractors incorporate 3D engineered models in their workflow of bidding and preparing to execute construction. Topics and guest speakers include:

  • Contractor's Organization Perspective — Brian Deery (AGC)
  • Using Available Data to Create Construction Models — Brian Smith (IMCO Construction)
  • Planning Construction Activities and Clash Detection — Karthik "RK" Ramkrishnan (Walsh Construction)
  • Executing Construction with 3D Engineered Models — Ryan Forrestel (Cold Spring Construction)

Next: Steps to Requiring 3D Engineered Models for Construction
October 15, 2014, 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. Eastern

This is the fifth in a series of eight webinars supporting the Every Day Counts 2 deployment of 3D Engineered Models for Construction. During this webinar, each participant will become familiar with which files in the Design Model are helpful in construction. They will also be able to describe how standardization and documentation of the delivered model enables recipients to consistently and reliably interpret the data. One of the greatest challenges facing our DOT partners is "signing and sealing" electronic documents. This webinar will discuss specific solutions to "signing and sealing" electronic documents. The most effective ways for transmitting models including timing of the delivery will be discussed.
