Gray Hosts BIM Seminar

Gray Construction hosted a Building Information Modeling (BIM) seminar for design-build subcontractors on May 6, 2010. The BIM seminar included speakers from a variety of companies that shared information on BIM including: 

§         The different aspects of BIM, such as 3D, 4D, 5D, and 6D.

§         How multi-disciplined models integrate to aid in coordination and design.

§         Design phases that reflect the stages of model development.

§         How the model can be viewed to communicate the design intent through photo realistic rendering and animations.

§         How structural models can be used by the steel fabricator.

§         How materials can be pre-fabricated to save costs and improve safety and quality.

§         Share in an interactive dialogue about how we can use the technology to work together better as a team and improve our service to the customer.
