This presentation is a part of the ongoing AIA Technology in Architectural Practice webinar series. View the complete series archive.
The use of computer technology has allowed designers to explore inspiring and radical design ideas. And, when these ideas are presented to clients the designers are challenged with "Can this world-class architecture be constructed within the project budget?" Surely computer technology can assist designers to monitor predicted construction costs? Surely computer technology can automate the tedious task of measuring, counting and organizing design components for cost estimating? This webinar explores the challenges and successes of using BIM for predicting construction costs through a series of three presentations provided by Beck Technology, Project Time & Cost, Inc. and Vico Software.
Good for: Design firms of all sizes, designers interested in monitoring and managing costs, ensuring compliance with contract requirements of design to construction budget. Find out more about this webinar.

AIA Committee on Architecture for Education presents this session that looks at the reinvention of General Electric's global leadership education center in Crotonville, NY, as it seeks to remain the vanguard of business education. This process involves recasting GE's training content (curriculum), experience (delivery and learning), and environment (facilities) as an integrated whole, requiring a bold move away from rote learning towards "experiential and trigger learning." This shift requires a mix of highly diverse spaces, many from outside the realm of business education, and tackles issues such as excessive technology saturation, creating human connections, and crafting experiences that can fundamentally change world views.
