With today’s tight budgets, collaboration requirements and quick delivery of projects with regulatory or performance-driven guidelines, landscape architects need to work smarter, not harder. Explore the challenges associated with transitioning from traditional CAD platforms to building information modeling (BIM), new efficient workflows, and the benefits/challenges of this change.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn the deciding factors that compel firms to move from general CAD to BIM and how firms transition to new design workflows, including timelines, challenges, and helpful resources.
  • Identify the suite of tools and work flows available to assist and document design.
  • Explore practical uses of BIM from conceptual drawings and models to construction documents and presentations.
  • Understand how BIM workflows are used to complete applications for LEED, SITES, and state, local, and federal reviews and approvals.
