When It HAS to Be BIM

Landscape architecture is evolving, and BIM is becoming more important than ever. Join Todd McCurdy, FASLA to explore an example project in which workflows using BIM software were used throughout the design process. McCurdy will show the benefits of BIM on a new restaurant site, in a pedestrian zone, where planting, steps, ramps, grading, and drainage are all part of the landscape architect’s scope. Like most multidisciplinary design team projects, Todd will share how crucial IFC exchanges are when each participant is using a different BIM solution, and how easily these files can be shared among team members to guide design direction with project stakeholders.

This course is approved for continuing education credit and certificate of completion (1 LA CES PDH and 1 APLD CEU) 

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain an understanding in how file ‘set up’ within BIM will be key to a project’s success.
  • Discover efficiencies gained in creating custom hybrid (2D/3D) BIM objects, such as plants.
  • Learn how importing the architect’s BIM model benefits the design process with needed context.
  • Explore ways to share the landscape file back into the BIM collaboration system.
