Cloud implementation sets Hunt on the BIM playing field
December 30, 2013 IMAGINiT Technologies

Hunt Engineers, Architects and Land Surveyors, PC, a full-service consulting and design firm, has been in business since 1972. With more than 120 engineers, architects, and designers, it provides services to educational, municipal, government, and industrial/commercial clients. With an upcoming multi-discipline project requiring BIM, only one team member had a working knowledge of the software. The firm needed to roll out the full Autodesk Revit Suite to 20 staff members, train them, and create content and templates — all prior to the project start. 


Establishing guidelines to enhance BIM adoption within the government sector
November 12, 2013 IMAGINiT Technologies

All branches of the government are striving to do more with less. That means tightening budget controls and preventing cost and schedule overruns. The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is no exception. This organization is looking for ways to ensure that facility space doesn’t exceed needs, to reduce the labor intensity associated with design and construction, and to improve the energy performance of buildings. To address the challenges associated with building construction and operation, the GSA is committed to adopting 3D, 4D, and Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies.  


SHW Group takes control of project financial and resource management
September 20, 2011 Newforma

 SHW Group had a problem with the financial and resource management of projects. “Most project managers are architects who prefer to design and deliver great structures to clients, rather than dive into the business side of architecture,” said SHW Group Chief Financial Officer Matt Snider. “But the real problem was that we lacked a tool to make financial and resource management quick and easy.”

How mature is your organization?
May 25, 2011 CE News

Trying to force new project management processes on a firm that isn't ready can be a disaster, and counterproductive. But how can you gauge your firm's "maturity" level? Project management expert Christine Brack describes the Capability Maturity Model and how you can use it to assess your firm.

Win More Work with Innovative Approaches to Project Proposals
Thursday, June 27th, 2013

How can you make your project proposals stand out in order to win work without losing time and money?

In this presentation, you’ll learn about new ways to quickly create more realistic proposals of design alternatives that demonstrate a better understanding of project needs, more clearly explain project designs, and help you win work.

Get to 30% Design Faster
Thursday, August 8th, 2013


Once you win an infrastructure project, how does your team provide owners, review agencies, clients and other stakeholders with a more solid understanding of your design intent?

This webcast presentation will present innovative approaches that show how you can easily combine 2D CAD, GIS, raster, and 3D models, enabling you to accelerate your infrastructure design process. It will also show how you can easily use rich visualizations to validate design decisions faster.

Get to “Yes” Faster with Agency and Community Stakeholders
Thursday, September 12th, 2013


Review agencies need to understand and approve projects before they can be built, but the approval process is often slow and linear. Non-technical public stakeholders, such as surrounding residents and business owners, struggle understanding 2D plans and their confusion can lead to expensive roadblocks.

Learn how you can use compelling simulations and animated 3D visualizations to better communicate project alternatives and community impact in a format that is more interactive and easily understood by agencies and non-technical audiences alike.

The Autodesk BIM Specialist Certification for Roads and Highways: A Quick Spin
Thursday, October 24th, 2013


Learn more about the Autodesk BIM Specialist Certification for Roads and Highways using the Autodesk® Infrastructure Design Suite 2014. We’ll give you information about:

• The authorized training guide

• The certification exam

• Learning objectives

• A BIM workflow for road and highway design

Using the training guide, you will learn how to employ a BIM process using the tools in the Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite in order to more fully realize the benefits of this intelligent, model-based approach: better understanding of the project, improved accuracy and efficiency, and more agility to respond quickly to changes at anytime, anywhere.

Practical Workflows for the Civil Engineer
Thursday, December 12th, 2013


You are already creating rich 3D models, but how can you more fully leverage this model to enhance every phase of infrastructure project workflow?

This webcast will show you how to use your rich, 3D models to gain greater visibility into projects, develop deeper insights into constructability, and identify and resolve issues virtually before breaking ground.
