Okanagan BIM User Group Presents!

below is a re-post from the BIM Jedi about the event

“Social Project Delivery

Caesar Ruest is the Autodesk Construction Solutions Executive based in Toronto, Canada

The ability to create, post, and access information anytime and anywhere is expected within a public environment through social media applications delivered through web. The successful adoption of social media exists due to a low cost of entry like a cell phone, ease of use, and the ability to share information. Globally, social media has been proven to create change at astonishing rates. Considering the world of capital projects, can we leverage a similar prescription with positive results? Social project delivery could be the future where project teams socialize their updated project status through a personalized web page, and share or access critical project files through the Cloud. The Cloud offers a low cost entry point for data storage and software services compared to the investment in servers and high performance workstations. The real potential of the social project environment involves the external project members who need to view and comment on the project information by using their web browsers. This session will describe the innovation within Cloud collaboration throughout the project lifecycle, and highlight upcoming advancements in Revit centralized cloud models.

Virtual Reality and its Impact on the AEC Industry

Join Shari Tambasco for a live demonstration and discussion on how Virtual Reality will impact the design Industry.

Virtual Reality has the potential to have a big impact on the architectural, engineering and construction industries, especially once we start experiencing the benefits of this burgeoning technology. VR gives us a truer perspective on our work, as we are figuratively plunked down into the middle of our creations-designs that are layered with rich information and endless variation. In the VR environment architects and designers can better visualize form and scale while exploring a building or space. Additionally, VR provides us with the opportunity to consider design options and refine areas that would have been difficult to visualize in a more conventional method.
