Theometrics was invited by Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) to speak at the Fall BIMForum in Atlanta, GA
NEW YORK, September 30, 2010 Theometrics, the leaders in Architectural Navigation Technologies, has been invited by The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) to speak at the Fall BIMForum conference on October 14th and 15th in Atlanta, Georgia. Theometrics has been asked to demonstrate their capabilities and associated benefits of expanding BIM to the construction process.
Theometrics innovations extend CAD and BIM benefits seamlessly to the construction process, eliminating the antiquated practice of using blueprints, strings and tape measures. Similar to how GPS navigates users over a map, Theometrics systems navigate users from any point on any CAD drawing or BIM model to the exact field location. Additionally, Theometrics and their authorized service providers automatically validate if design drawings match the as-built conditions and digitally document any deviation to aid in construction or to be used for forensic purposes.
We are pleased to align ourselves and support The BIMForum’s mission to facilitate and accelerate the adoption of building information modeling (BIM) in the AEC industry. Exteding BIM to the field (The seventh dimension of BIM) creates digital interoperability between the design team and the construction team, says Vincent Frasca, Vice President of Theometrics. Key objectives are to raise awareness of the countless benefits, create a standard for applying the best means and method when performing architectural or construction measurements and to bridge the gap between “sustainable design” and “sustainable construction.”
The BIMForum has grown into the industry-leading user’s group focused on the application of virtual design and construction for the AEC industry. It includes more than 1,800 members from the most advanced firms across the commercial construction Industry.
