Inside Out: 3D Modeling - It’s Not Just for Buildings
An Introduction to Civil Information Modeling
This webinar has been cancelled.
It has become industry standard, to create integrated 3D Building Information Models (BIM) for design, planning and asset management for facilities. These 3D models are being relied on and utilized in different ways by each owner, designer, and contractor. Most of these models are limited to the building footprint of the facility. Once on the site; owners, designers, and contractors must utilize paper 2D drawings (PDF & CAD) for planning and asset management.
Civil Information Modeling (CIM) is a new tool to bring the same benefits seen by BIM out of the building footprint. CIM is 3D information modeling of utilities and site elements. Utilities are modeled during design using modern best practices for Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) with accurate size and location (X, Y, and Z). The goal is accurately design for new utilities and grading to avoid conflicts during construction that lead to additional cost and delays. Metadata can be added to items to identify additional information beyond the 3D representation. Examples of this metadata are year installed, type of element (water, gas, electric, telecom, etc.) size & material, and owner if public utility. CIM and BIM can be integrated to create a holistic view of an entire project from design through construction, and beyond.
The webinar will introduce CIM through a case-study and the resulting benefits to both contractors and owners.
