7:00pm - 7:30pm An Approach to Coordination with Design In Mind
Presented by Mollie Carter, WDG Architecture
more lately, owners are requiring designers to run a 3D coordination as a deliverable - complete with clash reports.
What does this mean? Many people have seen what a construction coordination entails but have a difficult time applying it to the design process.
How can we create a process that positively influences design decisions and also does not cost us a lot of extra time and money? This presentation takes us through one approach to this requirement.
