You've heard it said that "time is money," but for electrical designs, "space" is equally as valuable. This webcast will provide an overview of the challenges BIM creates for today's consulting engineers and introduce a new solution that saves both time and space.

The electrical discipline historically lagged behind other disciplines in usage and efficiency of building information modeling, in part due to software such as Revit's focus on architectural or structural engineering. This webcast will discuss advances to support electrical engineers, including the MEP Revit plug-in LayoutFAST which improves the efficiency of electrical design in Revit.

LayoutFAST is dramatically changing how electrical engineers and designers' layout electrical equipment and move closer towards easy integration into their BIM projects.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the impacts and challenges of BIM for today's consulting engineers
  • Identifying spacing challenges and strategies for electrical equipment, objects and models
  • Experiencing a real-time walk-through of this revit-plugin -- LayoutFAST

Best of all, attendees will be able to download a free app (LayoutFAST) prior to the webcast and ask any of their questions via a live chat during the webcast.
