Day 1

1.2 LAB: Filling the Gap Between 2D and 3D (LIMITED SEATS AVAILABLE) Kelvin Tam, DP Architects This Lab is designed to help you understand the gap between traditional 2D graphic representation and 3D model families particularly when it comes to certain elements such as ramps, escalators and elevators.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution and the AEC Industry Reboot Tomislav Zigo, Clayco This presentation will look at the need for Concurrent Engineering, Product Lifecycle management and resources optimization in relation to Clayco’s project procurement cycle to accelerate the rebirth of the AEC industry.
1.3 LAB: Creating Profiles in Bluebeam Revu for Project Estimating (LIMITED SEATS AVAILABLE) Brian Juge, CAD-1 Bluebeam Revu is a powerful tool that can do more than just be used to markup PDF files. Learn how integrate this tool into your existing construction and BIM workflow.
Architectural and MEP Content from a Manufacturers Perspective Don Bokmiller, Schneider Electric A panel discussion on the advantages and disadvantages of manufacturer content over building your own as well as best practices for delivering and managing that content and the evolution needed to accommodate VR, AR and AI.
1.4 The BIM Challenge: A Gamified Framework for Learning Chiara C. Rizzarda, Strategie Digitali Transitioning from a traditional workflow to a BIM process is all about identifying problems and making the right choices. This class will see you discover how to deal with training in a way that goes beyong the classroom and into the practice.
Code  Blue, Dr. Revit! How to Resuscitate Corrupt Revit Models Nauman Mysorewala, GBBN Architects This course is designed to show you how to triage & resuscitate a corrupt Revit model. Leverage parsing Journal and SLOG files for diagnosis. Learn best practices to minimize file corruption.
1.5 LAB: Revit Fabrication Parts, From Design to Spooling Lab (LIMITED SEATS AVAILABLE) Ralph Schoch, Victaulic  One of our top 10 sessions from BILT ASIA, Learn the advantages in taking a Revit design model thru to fabrication spools, exemplifying the advantages of using a singular model.
BIM Content for Miles: How to Scale for Transportation Projects Jim Reis, Trimble In this presentation, you’ll learn how to scale content for transportation projects and how Trimble is using BIM to shape the future of transportation infrastructure by offering the tools needed to complete miles of projects in record-breaking time.


Day 2

2.2 Advance Steel and Revit, a Seamless Workflow (LIMITED SEATS AVAILABLE) David Cohn, 4D Technologies This session looks at the bi-directional interoperability between Revit and Advance Steel, which enables users to leverage the data in their BIM models to create a seamless steel fabrication workflow.
Configure, Automate, Innovate: Industrialized BIM in a World of Variation Ken Flannigan, KONE learn how designers and builders interact and benefit from industrialized BIM workflows to aid in the planning of a project’s vertical transportation solutions.
2.3 Photographs (not Photogrammetry) to BIM, A Practical Alternative for Scan to BIM  (LIMITED SEATS AVAILABLE) Virat Manchanda, Imagine BIM In this session, we introduce Photographs to BIM! In this lab you will learn a workflow by which you will be able to produce a BIM model of significant ‘mm’ accuracy using simple everyday photographs.
2.4 Using a Neural Network for Energy Saving Strategies in Early Design Brett Horin, CannonDesign Early design phase energy models often lack the precision to warrant spending resources to build models and run simulations. In this session you will learn how a neural network can be used to create a predictive model for energy simulations to predict the energy saving potential of different strategies.
Case Study: Structural Digital Engineering and Data Validation for Optus Stadium Rishi Jobanputra, Arup The presentation will cover the process used for the Structural Design documentation and BIM model validation of the newly-built Optus Perth Stadium. It will showcase the effective collaboration methods used between engineer, modeller/drafter and steel detailer using a wide range of BIM authoring and validation applications.
2.5 Stop Sugar Coating it and Really Start Working Together! Brian Mackey, BD Mackey Consulting Stop letting political correctness get in the way of collaborating more effectively. Join this session to discuss why there are hesitations to mention negatively affecting practices of others during a team meeting.
What Exactly is it you do here? A Primer on Model Management Jim Marchese, Stantec This course is an overview of model management and the much-misunderstood role of the Model Manager focusing on responsibilities, team collaboration, and addressing model issues that are common on most projects.


Day 3

3.1 Essential to Advanced Lookup Tables for Non-MEP Users Shawn Zirbes, CAD Technology Center Join us as we learn the ins and outs of Lookup Tables for use in Architectural and Structural content libraries
Panel: Coordination Between Disciplines Laura Keyser, HH Architecture Coordination and collaboration between disciplines is touted as a benefit of BIM. However, once past the marketing pitch, the realities of coordination in BIM are not neat and tidy. This panel, led by representatives in different disciplines will discuss tools and workflows to enhance the possibilities of coordination with BIM.
3.2 MEP Analytics with Dynamo Jason Boehning, 4D Technologies With building information models becoming more and more complex, it?s important to be able to keep track of the data within these models. Dynamo can be used to track information and extract data, in order to ensure that everything is correct.
Roundtable: Drafters or Engineers? Structural Revit Model or Analytical Model? Who Should Model What? Marcello Sgambelluri, JAMA After his first session sold out, this session is being repeated for any that missed out, but hurry as there are limited seats left!
3.3 Workshop: UX Design for Families Using Empathy, Prototyping and Testing Elaine Lee, Perkins Eastman Presenting this session for the 3rd time at a BILT Conference, Join an interactive discussion: Add UX design thinking to create families from a team mate’s perspective. Identify problems to resolve, generate, and evaluate potential solutions
No Wasted Data, an introduction to AutoCAD P&ID Don Rasmusson, CAD Technology Center With Autodesk bringing P&ID into Revit, life has changed. In this lab, we will set up and complete an Autodesk P&ID project . Then, round trip the data using an export and import process
3.4 Women in BIM Panel: The Business Case for Diversifying your BIM Staff Heather Worrell, RATIO In this moderator-led panel discussion aimed at both men and women, we will explore the impact of having women in key roles on the technology side of your firm. We will uncover the business case for diversifying your team.
Enhanced Integration: Connecting the Disjointed Lifecycle of the AECO Industry Marin Pastar, Bates Overview of how leveraging BIM and VDC technologies throughout the complete project life-cycle connects the disjointed AEC/O teams and increases efficiency by implementing federated as-built models and asset data into an Integrated Workplace Management (IWMS) platform at project turn-over, on top of streamlining the design and construction process.
