Foundations Episode #6 – No BIM – Field Layout Without A Coordinated Model

If there’s one consistent thread within the AEC industry over the past 10 years, it’s the incredible value and visibility that BIM affords throughout the entire project lifecycle. And to be sure, a completely coordinated and federated model allows all stakeholders to leverage and realize a tremendous advantage throughout the entire construction process. But what happens if you don’t have a fully constructible model? Is there any value to utilizing high precision construction layout tools, such as robotic total stations? In this episode, the Foundations team sits down with Alex Reitsema of BuildingPoint West. Spending his entire career within the construction layout space, Alex discusses some unique capabilities and deliverables that can be realized, even without a fully coordinated VDC model.
