Eric Harvey publishes article in Real Estate Business Online

Eric Harvey, director of the MPS in Real Estate Development program, published an article in REBusiness Online about integrated building information modeling (BIM). Read the full story here.

Excerpt:

“An integrated BIM approach allows architects, engineers and contractors to combine their work product into a single three-dimensional (3D) model that is able to track details on every brick, breaker, sprinkler head and equipment specification in one database. Integrated BIM models enable design teams to identify conflicts, and provide quick and accurate material takeoffs. Energy consumption and optimization is also measured and factored into models, allowing for quick and accurate HVAC load calculations.”
