VDC Webinar Mini-Series: How to Successfully Make the Journey from CAD to Revit

October 22, 2021

As we approach the MEP Innovation Conference in January, MCAA is scheduling a mini-series of VDC webinars to help get the discussion going. Each of these sessions features a contractor’s case study as they have adapted their processes to compete in the age of digital construction.  

The CAD to BIM software evolution has brought tremendous benefits for MEP contractors – creating less re-work and better coordination. Many contractors want to reap those benefits however making that shift can be challenging. Often, the transition is the toughest part. Detailers must unlearn engrained AutoCAD processes. It takes time to get the efficiency gains touted by the software. During the implementation stage, processes often take longer before they eventually improve. In this first webinar with icon Mechanical’s Vice-President of Engineering, Tim Riedle, shares valuable insights and first-hand experience with that transition. 

In this webinar, Tim Riedle features a case study detailing icon’s progression to Revit using Trimble SysQue. Viewers will learn how to begin their journey to Revit and best practices to implement along the way.

Don’t forget to register now for the 2022 MEP Innovation Conference, powered by Trimble. This year, MCAA, NECA and SMACNA have teamed up, bringing you over 60 of the most innovative contractors to present January 24-26 live in Tampa, Florida at the Tampa Marriott Water Street.
