InEight, the project technology expert, is teaming with HDR, which specializes in engineering, architecture, environmental and construction services, to reveal best practices from the companies' joint work. InEight's vice president of product management, Andy Kayhanfar, and Connor Christian, HDR's director of digital implementation services, will present these insights at the 2017 AACE International Annual Meeting. This conference brings together the total cost management community to discuss how teams can achieve and exceed project expectations.
Kayhanfar and Christian have more than 30 years of combined experience in design engineering and construction. At the annual meeting, they will draw upon that expertise to discuss how project-driven companies can leverage BIM to stay ahead of the curve. The pair will provide an inside look at how BIM can help all stakeholders visualize project success on the world's largest projects by maximizing project performance, linking project data to manage assets and tying it together within a collaborative, visual model.
"Today's capital projects are more complex than ever, but technology gives us a revolutionary way to literally envision project success from design to construction and into operations," said Kayhanfar. "A more collaborative approach can now be taken with BIM, linking the model with other project systems. This offers tremendous benefits from more reliably capturing project data to effectively communicating the plan, status and issues with all stakeholders."
Christian added, "Connectivity is critical for today's projects. Innovative companies are going beyond traditional 3D models to link designs to even more project data within tools and systems. This allows project managers to aggregate model data and quickly react to changes in real time. It also improves stakeholders' abilities to track progress and manage assets."
In addition to the presentation, InEight will be available throughout the annual meeting at Booth 109 to talk one on one about how companies can use technology to achieve project success. At the booth, attendees will be able to learn more about how proven software technology helps companies visualize, estimate, manage, control and connect all aspects of capital and maintenance projects.
