Meet Project Requirements with Workflows that Help Teams Comply with ISO 19650

Save Time and Rework with Standardized Project Naming Conventions in the Autodesk Construction Cloud Unified Platform The use of standards for construction project delivery has grown exponentially over the last decade. Standards define the collaborative processes for managing information over the project lifecycle. Ensuring consistent document control is key to meeting project requirements and avoiding rework. Without a standardized document control process, teams waste countless hours looking for the most up-to-date information. National and regional mandates, and an increase in Building Information Modeling (BIM), have led to the development of the ISO 19650 – a global design and construction information management standard.

Scan to BIM: Improve Your Construction Projects

Scan to BIM has become an integral part of capturing existing conditions for BIM projects. Creating an accurate 3D model allows confidence in your design. A precise model saves time and gives you peace of mind knowing that fabricating modules offsite based on your models will fit when installed. Today’s article will discuss the various steps in the reality capture and model creation process. The model accurately represents the existing conditions; you will sometimes hear the model referred to as a digital twin because of this. We will also examine some of the many uses of the reality capture process […]
