Mission Critical – Navisworks for Architects

Navisworks has long been a tool within the construction space, but Navisworks has tremendous benefits for Architects. This benefit is increased when Architects are part of a Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) team. The lecture will provide insights on tools and workflow processes that have been used by architectural firms to decrease headaches, increase communication, and dramatically reduce those construction request for information (RFI). Navisworks is a multi-faceted tool and the lecture will provide information on how Architects can leverage this tool for their greatest benefit.

Who Should Attend?

This User Group is intended for Architects and Engineers who have heard about Navisworks and believe that it is for Contractors. As Integrated Project Delivery increases as an industry best practice, Navisworks is a key technology.
