Data helps feed the information base needed for risk-mitigating design reviews, efficient and accurate construction document management, and predictive analytics. A data-driven approach to design and construction leads to a better project delivery.

HMC Architects’ BIM Technologist Tadeh Hakopian will discuss data’s role in building an organized and efficient project in Engineering News-Record’s (ENR) BuildTech on March 11. Lead by ENR’s Special Correspondent Tom Sawyer, Hakopian and Bridget Proulx, Kitchell Contractors’ BIM manager, will discuss the critical aspects of contract-specified BIM, data requirements for effective collaboration and handoff, and how to deliver a high intensity and better coordinated project.

BIM is so much more than a technology—it’s a complex design and construction process that helps architects create innovative buildings of the future. The process encompasses several different design tools and methods with the end goal of making every phase of construction and design as efficient, safe, and cost-effective as possible. Hakopian regularly shares his knowledge to encourage efficiencies in project workflows to help designers bring value to their firms and clients.

The ENR BuildTech conference brings together project designers and builders to learn about the latest practices, technologies, and techniques to foster innovation and accelerate projects. To learn more or register for the event, visit the event website.
