2017 Fall BIMForum: Dallas – Call For Presentations

By Marisa Strickler on April 04, 2017

Call for Proposals | Fall 2017

The BIMForum is now accepting proposals for the Fall BIMForum conference, November 6-8, 2017 in Dallas, Texas.

Fall 2017 Theme: “Professional Coordination: Expanding the new standard”

Examining the changing standard of care for designers, builders, and owners

Model-based coordination has consistently ranked as one of the most popular BIM uses in the building industry. Constructability issues are almost always more cost effective to be resolved in the virtual world rather than on the job site.

With all this hype, are we truly expanding a new professional standard of care that can guide designers, builders and owners towards effective results?

The Fall BIMForum will explore best practices in professional coordination from Architects, Engineers, Builders and Owners. We encourage proposals to thoughtfully consider how project stakeholders have addressed the following:

  • Establishing a collaborative environment
  • Organizing the coordination process
  • Conducting truly effective coordination meetings
  • Measuring the real-world results of professional coordination
  • Owners’ engagement in the coordination process
  • Design Assist and its impact on coordination
  • Handoff from design coordination to construction
  • Use of LOD (Levels of Development)

Submission Deadline: Friday, May 26th, 2017 at 5:00pm EST
