Discover How Easy BIM Can Be
Transitioning to BIM has a reputation for being daunting, frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive. So when clients pressure you to adopt BIM workflows, jumping in probably isn't your first reaction. But it could be...

Attend our BIM Camp and learn how easy adopting a BIM workflow can be.

Our BIM Camp teaches the skills you need to thrive in this new world of BIM, better understand how IFC-based standards benefit design teams, create sustainable and high-performing designs, and collaborate through Open BIM. Attendees also receive a BIM Survival Kit, loaded with presentation materials and other resources.


Attend BIM Camp and Receive 4 AIA/CES/HSW or LA CES PDH
$25 per person for AIA, LA CES, and Vectorworks Service Select members, and students
$40 per person for non-members

All registration fees will fund the Vectorworks Young Architects Student Scholarship to be awarded later this year!

Equip Yourself ⎯ What is BIM?
Presenters: Ruby Siddiqui, Assoc. AIA, NOMA, of Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc.
Duration: 30 Minutes
This presentation will define BIM and highlight the differences between “Little BIM” and “Big BIM.” It will also explore what tools are available to create a BIM and what the advantages are of utilizing IFC technology in an Open BIM workflow.

Morning session: 9:30 a.m.
Afternoon session: 3:30 p.m.
Where am I on the BIM Path?
Presenter: Steve Alden, AIA, of Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc.
Duration: 30 Minutes
This presentation will examine the workflows of design-oriented architectural firms and explore their unique implementations of BIM processes. Firms discussed will include HKS (Atlanta, GA), Cearnal Andrulaitis Architecture and Interior Design (Santa Barbara, CA), MulvannyG2 Architecture (Bellevue, WA), Division1 (Washington D.C.) as well as others. The presentation will highlight the use of BIM technology as an adaptive tool supporting flexible workflows.

Morning session: 10:00 a.m.
Afternoon session: 4:00 p.m.
Small Green BIM
Presenter: François Lévy, AIA, AIAA, and Author of BIM in Small-Scale Sustainable Design
Duration: 60 Minutes
This presentation will discuss the dominant influence of climate on the design of smaller projects and the quantitative design opportunities BIM offers for sustainability. Identify the BIM workflow’s applicability to skin-load dominated projects and discuss specific element modeling strategies in a BIM-authoring application to optimize the early design of high-performance buildings.

Morning session: 11:00 a.m.
Afternoon session: 5:00 p.m.

Morning session: 11:15 a.m.
Afternoon session: 5:15 p.m.
Legal Issues in BIM
Presenter: David Abramovitz, Principal, Zetlin & De Chiara
Duration: 20 Minutes
The advent of BIM technology promises to improve the overall design process for construction projects, and is likely to become the dominant system for project design delivery. This presentation outlines the potential liabilities firms should consider when utilizing this cutting-edge technology on its projects. Issues to be discussed include copyright ownership, information management and control, licensing issues and more.

Morning session: 11:35 a.m.
Afternoon session: 5:35 p.m.
Site Planning Workflows with BIM
Presenter: Eric Gilbey, RLA, ASLA, Prof. Mem. APLD of Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc.
Duration: 30 Minutes
This presentation will communicate the benefits and challenges of integrating BIM software into a landscape architecture studio. It will demonstrate how to integrate Site Information Modeling (SIM) functionality into BIM workflows for site-specific projects and collaborate with clients using Open BIM workflows.

Morning session: 12:05 p.m.
Afternoon session: 6:05 p.m.
Plugging Structural Analysis and Design into the BIM Workflow
Presenter: Dan Monaghan of Nemetschek Scia
Duration: 15 Minutes
This presentation will explore BIM from the point of view of the structural engineer. Through an example building-based project, we'll highlight the benefits and considerations of working in a collaborative, model-based workflow. We'll demonstrate advantages of Open BIM and Industry Foundation Class (IFC) model exchanges. We look at how BIM models from architects can be leveraged into analysis, and how optimized structural models can be passed back for reference and model coordination.

Morning session: 12:20 p.m.
Afternoon session: 6:20 p.m.
Big BIM: Description and Case Study
Presenters: Wes Gardner, Assoc. AIA, of Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc.
Durations: 30 Minutes
This presentation outlines how organizations develop IFC-based standards to achieve streamlined workflows. Various file-sharing methods such as the BIM Server, Peer-to-Peer and Reference Model workflows are presented in conjunction with the roll of the BIM Manager. The presentation concludes with a case study proving the concept of BIM interoperability.

7:00 p.m. Reception sponsored by Nemetschek Vectorworks. Venue TBD.
