FETCH PRESENTATIONS

Fast & Fully Loaded: 5D BIM

fetch continuing educationProgram Description: (AIA/HSW LU continuing education credit) In this one-hour course, design professionals will explore how a 5D BIM plug-in can improve the design process, allowing them to efficiently plan space and create storage solutions with creativity and flexibility. Dynamic design features, including accessibility and safety, with real-time pricing, enhance the creative and decisioning processes from conception to final inspection. Modular design and storage solutions that reduce waste and improve the built environment will be reviewed utilizing the 5D BIM plug-in to realize the multiple benefits of this technology.

Learning objectives:

  • Discuss the evolution of design tools and the current use of 5D BIM technology.
  • Describe how the 5D BIM plug-in assists with efficient space planning and storage solution options that meet all applicable accessibility, national, and local codes.
  • Explain how the plug-in’s “clash detection” capabilities can expose potential design issues prior to the start of construction.
  • Examine how modular and other storage design options create space and reduce waste, including how the 5D enhancement improves the design process for both the designer and the client.

Program Format/Length: Sixty-minute PowerPoint slide presentation including question and answer period.

Program Descriptions: (Counts toward one AIA/HSW LU) Storage secured will identify major storage concerns within law enforcement facilities. While identifying major storage concerns (specifically evidence), this presentation will also identify storage solutions for those concerns that maximize efficiency, save floor space, reduce construction costs, and keep criminals behind bars. Finally, the presentation will touch upon other major planning considerations for these facilities, such as floor loading and LEED® certification.

university-renovations-and-repurposingIntegrating Storage Across Campus: How Adaptability Starts with Flexible Storage

Program Descriptions: (Counts toward one AIA/HSW LU) Planning spaces for higher education environments is about much more than lecture halls and dorms – A campus is a place of learning and working, socializing and relationship-building, wellness, and discovery. This presentation will walk you through how to design facilities that not only help recruit & retain students and faculty, but also manage risk, improve efficiencies and safety, and help create flexible, future-proof spaces. This presentation will also outline trends and challenges that are impacting campus facility design and demonstrates how thoughtful storage solutions can help create highly functional interior spaces and directly influence the campus’s ability to achieve its mission.

Program Description:(Counts toward one AIA/HSW LU) Libraries have responded to the changing needs of the communities they serve and are seeking to create more flexible, open, and technology-rich spaces. Architects and designers are required to design for flexibility and openness within existing and limited spaces. In this course, architects and designers will learn how to combat these challenges by using furniture, fixtures, and equipment that are able to reduce the amount of space being used for book storage and increase the availability of space with flexible FF&E. Through the proper design and use of mobile FF&E, designers will be able to design libraries that respond to up and coming trends.

Floor Loading 101

Program Description:(Counts toward one AIA LU/HSW) Speed up the building design and decision-making process by avoiding unnecessary delays and changes with an ability to identify the new construction building types most suitable for high-density storage. Moreover, several strategies exist to accommodate heavy storage system loads. These include the ability to reorient, redistribute, relocate, reconfigure and reinforce. This program contains an illustrated case study as well as several examples of post-construction modifications and supplements for high-density storage.

BIM Libraries

Testimony

“As a BIM Manager, I have been making BIM library families from scratch and creating/adapting vendor families for years for a variety of commercial projects. Today I was literally breathless when first seeing the quality of families from Southwest Solutions Group. They have real parametric controls, are conscientious of the digital weight and aesthetically wowing. Not only are these families better than any vendor I have seen… I couldn’t have done it better myself! Fantastic work!”
