Enhancing Collaboration to Improve Steel Building Project Efficiency

Course Information

This linear process obviously calls for a lot of data transmittal, interpretation and recast-ing in different formats — it’s a workflow derived from paper-based practices going back decades. And it’s become apparent that the process fails to capture the savings and efficiencies made possible by modern design practices based on 3-D models.


Douglas G. Fitzpatrick, P.E.

Learning Objectives

  • How the typical steel building workflow hinders collaboration.
  • The benefits of model-based design with the model being used multiple times by different stakeholders.
  • How secure data management with version control alleviates concerns.
  • How the model-based design workflow improves efficiency and reduces liability.
