Building Information Modeling (BIM) has had an incredible impact on the Design and Construction industries, with a big focus for the “vertical” market.  How though, is it impacting the horizontal (infrastructure) market?

This workshop is intended to answer that question, aimed at those of you who are new(ish) to the concept of Information Modeling as it applies to non-building projects like: infrastructure for dams, waste facilities, rail, transit, aviation, energy, roads, highways, bridges, public parks and recreation, water, and wastewater.  You will learn the terminology for holding your own in conversations about Information Modeling on jobs, as well as gaining a deeper understanding of what Information Modeling for Infrastructure is and how you might begin to use it.

Come to this session prepared to interact – it is not a lecture format, instead we will have frank discussions about the overall process and take a deeper dive into the specifics about what this dynamic technological process means to you.
