As-Built BIM as a Tool for Urban Renewal

This issue and this month’s webinar focus on the use of as-built BIMs in complex urban renewal projects where existing conditions must be accurately documented for design and construction management.  First is an interesting parking garage project in San Juan, PR that required more than 350 scans. Next you'll read about a complex multi-use redevelopment project at a former Coca-Cola bottling plant in Los Angeles. You can learn more about both these projects on our webinar this week, Wednesday 7/22 at 1pm EDT titled: As-Built BIM and Urban Renewal--Case Studies in Mixed-Use Redevelopment.

Sustech LLC reduced its overall modeling time two thirds on a large parking garage development project by using the EdgeWise 5.0 to automatically extract the architectural, structural and MEP features. The company delivered a single BIM containing all of the features needed by the architecture firm to design multiple new construction projects around the existing garage.

Based in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Sustech specializes in 3D scanning and BIM for the construction industry. Its client base spans the Caribbean as well as Panama and the United States. Sustech delivers BIM and other 3D products for every phase of construction.

BIM Used for Entire Design/Construction Coordination

“For the parking garage project in San Juan, we were hired by the owner – the largest bank in Puerto Rico – to serve as the construction project management consulting firm,” said Sustech President Angel Vazquez. “BIM

The former West Coast headquarters for Coca-Cola in Los Angeles is undergoing a major conversion. Once a cavernous soft drink production facility, the warehouse-style building will soon be home to offices, retail stores and restaurants. But the make-over hasn’t taken place without the structure revealing a surprise that posed a challenge to 3D BIM creation. “The cement floors in the building were not flat – there were raised areas and then slopes down, almost like it was purposely tiered to provide level platforms for some type of processing equipment or storage tanks” said

As-Built BIM has become an essential tool in modern urban development as cities seek to maintain historicbuilding facades and footprints. However, documenting the existing geometry of the walls, windows, MEP systems and other critical elements of a redevelopment project presents a set of unique challenges and competing interests.

This insightful session will highlight two recent mixed-used redevelopment projects, in in Los Angeles and Puerto Rico that utilized the latest hardware and software technologies to overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges. These case studies, one a defunct corporate headquarters and the other a decades-old parking garage, will show you practical tips and workflow tools that you can implement on your very next as-built BIM project.

Specifically you will learn:

1. How public/private urban renewal jobs can differ from regular scanning/modeling projects

2. How design/build firms are using BIM throughout their as-built project lifecycle

3. How you can implement these time-saving best practices in your field-to-finish workflow

4. New software tools such as EdgeWise 5.0 to speed back office data processing and modeling

Join BIM experts Les Carter, Project Manager at Cannon Corporation, Angel Vazquez, President of Sustech, LLC and Kevin Williams, CTO of ClearEdge3D on this instructive and actionable webinar.
