Civil and Industrial Forum – VDC in a Horizontal World

By BIMForum on May 03, 2012

A half day Civil, Industrial, and Utilities VDC Forum was held on April 24th in conjunction with the April 25-26 BIMForum in San Antonio, Texas. This session featured implementations of VDC on Highway, Road, Bridge, Utility, Treatment Plants, and Power Distribution projects. This was the first of what will be a continued effort to explore the uses of BIM in Civil construction.  The Civil and Industrial forum plans to meet again at the Fall BIMForum meeting.
