PC1 Unit 3: BIM Project Execution Planning (3rd edition)


Benjamin Crosby | CM-BIM, CCM, LEED AP BD+C, CM-LEAN // Director of BIM/Virtual Design and Construction | The Yates Companies

Mike Lapicola | Partner | Faefre Baker Daniels

BIM Project Execution Planning is a full-day, facilitator-led course designed as a mix of lecture, facilitated discussion and activities. Use cases provide examples to help you understand session concepts. Course books will be given to all students.

The course is divided into four sessions:

Session 1 introduces participants to teaming dynamics that are most desired, if not required, for a successful project. During this session, you will learn what qualities are necessary for a successful project team, the importance of establishing an environment of shared vision and accountability for each team member, to each other. We will also look at the impact of different size groups and how to adapt without compromising the project goals.

Session 2 examines some of the more basic BIM-related legal concepts. We will focus on providing a fairly high-level perspective on a range of legal topics that attendees should know. These are general concepts that are evolving, along with BIM. We'll look at risk, intellectual property and standard of care. All of these are good examples of real world concerns for everyone on the project. We will also examine the different delivery methods for construction projects, with time to discuss trends and benefits of particular models.

Session 3 is all about gaining a strong understanding of the BIM Project Execution Plan (BIM PXP). We will look at the basic questions of what it is and why it is necessary, as well as how you can use the plan for any size project(s). We will spend quite a bit of time gaining a strong understanding of why this is such an important ingredient for a successful project. We will also look at some of the plans that are currently in use today.

Session 4 is your time to participate in a BIM project team activity. You will be part of a team, with a defined role, and you will apply what you have learned in the course. The day will end with this activity with the goal that it will reinforce the information that was shared with you during the previous three sessions.

Women's Leadership Workshop

Included with any Conference Package Registration

PC2 How Women Rise: Helping Women Break the Habits that Hold Them Back

In this program, Sally will draw from her recent bestseller, How Women Rise, which she co-authored with No. 1 ranked executive coach Marshall Goldsmith. The book identifies the 12 habits or behaviors most likely to get in the way of successful women as they seek to rise in their organizations, firms or sectors.

Each of these behaviors is rooted in a specific strength, and many of them serve women well in the early stages of their careers. Yet the same behaviors that women come to rely on and believe are required for success may undermine them as they move to higher levels.

Knowing how to spot these habits can be helpful to women at every stage, either in their own careers or as mentors for other women. But this information also has great value for men. Men seeking to become more savvy and effective peers, colleagues, leaders, teammates, mentors, coaches and supporters of talented women will benefit from what they learn.

Both female and male participants will come away from this program with powerful and actionable ways to serve as a resource for spurring greater female engagement and unleashing the full potential of aspiring women leaders.
