Leica Geosystems Takes BIM Full Circle at Autodesk University 2015
Building information modeling (BIM) is experiencing a revolution in the construction industry as project teams increasingly strive to adopt a lifecycle process that brings reality into BIM and BIM into reality. Through innovative hardware and software integrations, today’s construction professionals have faster and easier access to high-accuracy data throughout the entire construction process.
At Autodesk University 2015, Dec. 1-3 at The Venetian in Las Vegas, Leica Geosystems will show how workflow solutions developed in collaboration with Autodesk bring BIM full circle for a holistic building construction approach. Highlights of the event will include:
- Workflow demonstrations at Leica Geosystems Booth #1311, Autodesk Booth #535 and BIM City that show simple yet powerful workflows for incorporating 3D laser scanning and digital layout into construction projects for efficient and accurate pre-design as-builting, construction layout and construction validation
- A printed resource for AU attendees (pictured above), available at Booth #1311, that guides construction professionals through the full circle BIM workflows and shares best practices for an efficient BIM process
- A practical class on Wednesday, Dec. 2, taught by Cathi Hayes of Leica Geosystems and Stanley Lawrence of Datum Tech Solutions that explores strategies for achieving streamlined BIM to robotic total station layout with solutions from Autodesk and Leica Geosystems
- An exclusive “by invitation only” reception on Wednesday, Dec. 2, that brings together dreamers, thinkers and doers to share insights and exchange ideas
“To be successful, today’s construction teams have to find a way to accomplish more with less; they have to be faster and more accurate and also use resources as efficiently as possible,” said Ken Mooyman, president of Hexagon Geosystems NAFTA. “The alliance between Leica Geosystems and Autodesk makes it much easier for construction teams to use a full-circle BIM process to achieve these goals. At Autodesk University, attendees will be able to explore how the latest integrations of hardware and software create more streamlined and easier to use scanning and layout workflows, which will help them minimize rework and achieve new levels of efficiency, predictability and profitability.”
