Workshop - From Point-Cloud to Existing Conditions BIM with Revit

The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) is pleased to announce the launch of the first heritage conservation workshop in partnership with the Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS). This unique workshop will take place July 19-21, 2019 in Ottawa, ON.

Take advantage of the opportunity to spend a weekend working in the Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS) Lab and learn more about Building Information Modeling (BIM) for heritage (HBIM) and existing conditions from the Winners of the 2018 CanBIM Best in Academic and Best in Innovation Award for the Library of Parliament BIM. This workshop will help participants better understand the complex and unique challenges in managing a BIM project for heritage and existing conditions, including managing large and diverse datasets, file size, and selecting the appropriate level of detail and model tolerance for your project.

Find out how to maximize the efficiency of your project by applying simple fundamental tips for Heritage BIM, and learn hands-on, step-by-step techniques for modeling basic building elements to point cloud data including walls, slabs, windows, and ceilings. The course will include a tour of a designated heritage building with a demonstration of capturing point cloud data with terrestrial laser scanners. Participants will receive an illustrated tutorial outlining all the steps required to model basic building elements from point-cloud and will be able to ask instructors questions throughout the training.

The workshop also includes a 4-hour online pre-learning e-module, designed to ensure participants have a foundational knowledge of the topics and programs to be explored during the in-person workshop experience. A post-workshop online seminar will also be held to further assist participants.
