This course documents the cost and performance advantages of BIM when applied to steel joist design. Successful BIM joist design process management is demonstrated and independent research is shared regarding the need for greater adoption of BIM based steel joist and deck design.
After taking this course, you will have learned:
- How steel joist design improves BIM project development: Proven advantages and benefits to steel construction.
- How BIM supports steel joist design: key benefits and two methods of adoption – Partial BIM, Full BIM
- BIM process management steps: Joist Kickoff Meeting, Ongoing Coordination Meetings, Pre-Construction Meetings
- Collaboration and interoperability: Proven outcomes and higher expectations for BIM-based steel joist project design.
