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: The Future Adding Time, Cost, and Other Information to 3D Models
November 19, 2014, 1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Eastern

This will be the last webinar in a series of eight where the focus will be on the future of 3D Modeling. Participants will learn how 4D and 5D Models are a natural progression of 3D Modeling. The presenters will provide examples of how 3D Modeling has been successfully implemented along with 4D and 5D on large Design-Build projects. Additionally, hear what the FHWA's future plans hold for continuing 3D Modeling in EDC-3.
