Concept of BIM Set Up/Project Kickoff Meeting in a Project Execution Plan


Introduction to the Concept

In the first place, BIM (Building Information Modeling) Set Up/Project Kickoff Meeting is a Project Execution Plan which defines the processes from start to end. Project Execution Plan, this term is widely known in construction technology field.

To clarify, the Project Kickoff Meeting plan includes the aims, methods for the project. Further, it explains complexity throughout the lifecycle of the project. The project schedule, cost estimation, contractual responsibilities and, output, i.e., final deliverables are inclusive, too.

Even after having these things, there can be necessary information available for the owner of related operations and facility management of the building.

BIM models are considered as a simple technology for multi-disciplinary projects for the design and construction, nowadays.

For efficient collaboration, a Project Kickoff Meeting is essential to solving project management issues which may arise with less knowledge of BIM coordination.

Autodesk are further extending the Level of detail that can be presented by adding specific modelling tools to extend the power of structural connections and end treatments. You now have dedicated tools to create notches, saw cuts, holes and chamfers and rounds to steelwork. This allows for a greater Level of Detail when modelling and these features can be directly linked to Advance Steel for full Automatic fabrication documents.
