Module 5 - Points to Ponder

What are the principal advantages of using a single building information model of the existing conditions as the foundation for modeling proposed additions or renovations?

Using the original design we can fabricate the new building. The addition can be accurately placed by understanding the placement of the original building.

What sort of complexities are introduced when you construct a building complex in phases?

It is important to try to understand what the next step is. Putting the walls then the doors then the windows. To make an efficient building making process, you must know what the next step is so you don’t forget to make something or phases clash.

In your project, which features of the proposed design did you choose to model as design alternatives?

I chose big room meeting areas and an alternative route through the building. The hardest part was which areas would really make a difference by changing walls.
