The importance of education, automation, and data is at the forefront of strategic implementation of BIM (Building Information Modeling) at KPF. The firm’s initiatives and systems created the courage to adopt Revit software within studios, and foster and develop a skilled user base with educational resources and office-wide learning sessions. In project kickoffs, these tools helped teams identify opportunities to develop custom tools that would automate repetitive tasks. This session will address how KPF uses the data from intelligent models to help the design technology team monitor hundreds of active models. Team members used software such as Clarity, Dynamo, and Tableau to feed the information into a dashboard that let them assess model health and identify issues before they could arise. Let’s take a look at how this practice affects our evolution in offices and on projects around the world.
