As part of a project BIM requirement the CM, VCC, was tasked with providing model-based trades coordination for the new Louisiana State Museum and Sports Hall of Fame, a new $12 million, 28,000 square foot building designed by Trahan Architects. CASE was brought on to assist VCC in their first BIM project, providing modeling services for electrical, HVAC, sprinkler and architectural trades (pre-cast, glazing and metals), as well as running and managing clash, clearance and sequence analysis across the project. CASE worked alongside VCC in running web-based weekly coordination meetings, using the model as both an issue tracking record as well as a communication tool between the CM and its sub-contractors. This approach enabled experienced construction managers, engineers, fabricators and tradesmen to view their issues in the context of other trades and focus on problem-solving regardless of their 3D capabilities.
