It’s almost June and Digital Built Week in Dallas….
My name is Elaine Lee, Senior Project Architect at LPA, and I attend DBEI events because the conferences offer a short break away from the office to learn from peers about how to accomplish work, and how to help project teams work with digital tools productively. BILT conferences offer a friendly environment for sharing thoughts, ideas, and work experiences, while spending a few days of fun between learning sessions. Attendees and speakers get to meet, mingle, and chat before and after sessions, leading to professional connections that positively impact future collaborations and careers. After attending BILT events globally as attendee and speaker over the years, some of the people I have met at BILT, I meet again later, as project consultants, or pre-construction partner, or trusted vendor resource, or future co-worker, or future co-speaker.
At this year’s Digital Built Week Americas event in Dallas, I will be co-presenting with Julie Kidder, Architect + BIM Director at Hartman + Majewski Design Group. We met last year at BILT in Anaheim at my presentation. During the questions portion of the session, we realized that we had similar experiences with projects that include contractor participation during design phases and issuing multiple packages to allow for early construction starts and thought this would be an interesting presentation topic to pitch for BILT.
Our presentation is in Session 3.4, “Managing Multiple Submittal Packages – How to Develop Flexible Strategies.” Click here for more information on our session.
We will share our experiences about managing the documentation process with the design team, contractor, client, and reviewing agencies while accomplishing common project goals related to different delivery types, such as Early Release Packages, Fast-Track, Design-Assist, Design-Build.
There isn’t a single formula for completing multiple submittal packages quickly and simply, but we have identified some common practices for organizing, communicating, and collaborating using Revit, Bluebeam, and other digital tools to help respond to challenges during the project development process. We will also share how we create flexible strategies that can help project teams stay focused on the right efforts at the appropriate time. These flexible strategies include key decisions so that team will be able to change if the project flow changes, or reviewing agencies request a little more information than initially planned.
We look forward to sharing our solutions for challenges with projects requiring multiple submittals at BILT in Dallas, in June. Come to our session, ask questions, and chat with us at the conference.
