One aspect of Building Information Modeling (BIM) that is widely implemented by both design and construction professionals is clash coordination. However, many efforts are hampered by misaligned models, imprecise clash reports, and the inability to review clash results efficiently. To ensure a successful outcome, thoughtful planning is needed to consider factors which span across the phases of a project's development, as well as across multiple BIM applications.

This one-day class is designed for those utilizing Navisworks® Manage to assemble Revit and AutoCAD based files into a single federated model for clash coordination.
