DBIA: National Conference TakeawaysContributor: Swinerton Blogger | November 13, 2013
On November 4-6, Swinerton traveled to sunny Las Vegas for the DBIA’s 20th annual Design-Build Conference & Expo. Our team joined other builders, architects, and owners from across the nation to share ideas and refine best practices related to design-build through a packed schedule of presentations, networking event, and panel discussions.
Three of Swinerton’s project delivery experts presented on “Design-Build Meets Green BIM,” exploring the ways that building information modeling is a natural fit for the design-build method. BIM can be leveraged early on in a project’s design to provide potential data on heating, cooling, lighting, electric, and water usage, all before a project even breaks ground. Designers and builders can harness this data to create environments that are energy efficient and healthy for occupants, all while meeting the stringent scheduling and budget demands of design-build.
