Dwell On Design Starts Friday!
June 20th, 2014 by Mary Moscarello
The unique three-day event that is Dwell on Design LA has become a must-see and must-do for interior design professionals and members of the AEC community. As it returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center June 20th through the 22nd, GRAPHISOFT will be exhibiting at booth #952.
ArchiCAD takes center stage on Friday, June 20th, as GRAPHISOFT sponsors two presentations highlighting how BIM can facilitate and streamline the workflow process for interior design.
BIM for High End Residential Design, presented by Mark Vacha is scheduled for 1:30 in meeting room 304C. Vacha’s presentation will discuss his use of ArchiCAD on a beachfront home in Ocean Beach, CA, with a “tight window” lot. He’ll help attendees learn how to apply an efficient BIM-based workflow to master a typical SD, DD, CD. He’ll go over Permitting, Bidding architectural processes and successfully integrating various disciplines (e.g., structural engineering, etc.) into the BIM workflow.
Session participants will also see how GRAPHISOFT’s presentation tool, BIMx can improve communications and accurately set expectations between designer, contractor, and client. BIMx has helped Vacha’s clients fall in love with their home before it’s built.
Also on Friday, Dwell on Design attendees can attend a presentation entitled Competitive Advantage with BIM Technology, by Meghan Beckmann of KAA Design Group. Beckmann’s presentation will highlight two of the firm’s recent projects that exemplify the potential for using ArchiCAD to compete for and win projects, improve design process efficiency, and add value for clients.
Beckmann will strive to demonstrate to attendees the ways to use materials palette studies to help clients visualize options and make important decisions; use the ArchiCAD Morph Tool to model interior features in a home design; create, edit, and use objects and the Object Library; and bring ArchiCAD BIM models into BIMx for presentations that help clients visualize and understand the project.
