Chris France (Advance2000) & Joe Sferrazza (CRUG)

We all know what BIM is, but what does this have to do with Cloud Computing?

Guest speaker, Chris France will discuss the benefits and challenges of cloud computing. This technology is as disruptive as BIM was to our industry and will be the catalyst for Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), lean construction, as well as owner facility manager collaboration.

Joe Sferrazza of Carolinas Healthcare system and the Charlotte Revit User Group will also be demonstrating the new CRUG Add-Ins. The Add-Ins will demonstrate some of the time-saving possibilities when you leverage the Revit API.

Colleen Kasprzak (Penn State)

Come join Charlotte’s Revit User Group, on January 27th, to hear Colleen Kasprzak discuss how Penn State is implementing BIM.

Penn State has a unique opportunity to diversely implement BIM processes because not only does the University act as an owner, but also as designer and construction manager on the majority of projects. The main focus as an owner is the importance of driving the BIM model by keeping the end in mind.

This presentation discusses:

  • The struggles of large-scale BIM implementation as owner
  • Methods Penn State is currently pursuing to create a successful BIM strategy
  • How to integrate BIM into the current FM system

Colleen Kasprzak is currently the BIM Implementation Strategist, LEED AP, at Penn State University. As a member of the Computer Integrated Construction (CIC) Research Group she was involved in the authoring of the BIM Project Execution Planning Guide. Colleen is also an active speaker, presenting on BIM at events such as the AGC BIMForum.
