The Life of a Model: Design, Coordination, and the Field

On Demand

If you had to guess, how much of a construction project is "make or break" about communication?

We’ve found that around 52% of all rework is caused by poor communication. That’s a shocking statistic! But it also indicates a lot of upside potential.

It can be tough to find new talent these days. Finding someone who can read and interpret various forms of communication can be even more difficult. That’s why we believe the model is a necessary method of communication—and as we make it easier for everyone to digest models in each phase of construction—communication across teams becomes easier.

In this webinar, we’ll cover the life of a model, from design to coordination and installation. We’ll show how:

  • A model gets refined virtually before hitting the site

  • Teams in the field can use models to effectively communicate concerns and progress to project stakeholders

  • A model moves from stage to stage and from product to product including Revit, Navisworks, Autodesk BIM Collaborate, and the Autodesk Construction Cloud App
