BIM for Design Coordination

BIM for Design Coordination 

Fernanda L. Leite

Preference :

While still an undergraduate student in my native country, Brazil, I interned for a construction company and performed rudimentary paper-based design coordination. I compared drawings that were submitted by various specialty engineering firms, each working independently on their scopes of work and not collaborating with one another. My job was seemingly simple: to identify physical conflicts between the various scopes of work based on two-dimensional drawings. I performed the comparison as systematically as possible but did not even have a light table to help. I simply had the hard-copy drawings opened up side-by-side on a large meeting table. Often, the drawings that I was comparing, all from different design firms, were not even printed on the same scale.
