CMGT 428 Virtual Construction (3 Credits)

Hours: 3 classroom + 0 lab/studio
Prerequisite(s): CMGT 222 .
Prerequisite OR Co-requisite: CMGT 324 .
Taught: Variable-chck w/dept
The building industry is rapidly adopting Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and Building Information Models (BIM) throughout the project process: design, construction, and facilities management. VDC and BIM is increasingly becoming an umbrella term for a variety of software tools, design methods, and construction processes that allow for more automation, communication and integration between project participants. This course reflects on emerging technologies in the context of Project Management and Integrated Delivery, and includes modeling, visualization, 3D clash detection, digital site layout, 4D modeling, as-built model generation, and digital information management. This course will first introduce basic VDC and BIM concepts and review industry examples of how these concepts play out on design and construction projects. We also introduce basic modeling techniques. Building on the modeling skills, we will explore how visualization and information technologies, (3D/4D/BIM and integrated databases) support project planning and execution by creating a 4D model.
Repeatable: No
