In nowadays construction industry, Building Information Modeling (BIM) is becoming more and more popular. Using every bit of digital information to manage design, construction & operation phases ensure the stakeholders, better costs control and more predictable results. This presentation will introduce the audience to Virtual Construction and BIM, and will describe how Canam used those technologies to leverage the upstream and downstream market forces during the construction phase of one of the most challenging project ever built, the New Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.


Presentation Highlights::
• Early planning of complex jobsite using 4D simulation
• Information rich models to share production statuses with customers and subcontractors
• Model based quality control on complex elements
• Transport planning and permit acquisition.
