Award-Winning BIM Discussed by Architect and Contractor During New DesignRealized Continuing Education Program


Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — The Inside Story of the Jesse H Jones Hall Renovation Project is the topic of LearnVirtual’s next DesignRealized AIA Continuing Education event. Scheduled for Friday, September 23, 2011, at 9 a.m. Pacific, this program features speakers from Morris Architects and Satterfield & Pontikes Construction sharing how they used BIM to create such value that the client said, “it is almost impossible to imagine how we accomplished so much, so fast, so well, and so happily – all on the basis of great design of which we are very proud.”

“This is the third event in our series on Integrated Project Delivery: Virtual Design to Construction,” says Tony Rinella, Curriculum Developer for DesignRealized. “With this presentation we move from ideas into practical applications. We will hear from an award-winning team that leveraged BIM and a collaborative spirit to achieve a project even the client acknowledges was beyond expectation.”

AIA Chapters and other groups have partnered with LearnVirtual to bring this DesignRealized event to communities around the U.S. With this multi-venue education program, speakers will present from a “home” city, and their presentations will be web cast simultaneously to venues across the U.S. Local venues will have facilitators to moderate group knowledge-sharing discussions and question and answer sessions with the primary speakers. Individuals can watch from their own computers if an event is not scheduled in their area.

DesignRealized is produced by the LearnVirtual education team. LearnVirtual specializes in the design and implementation of education programs for AEC professionals. With an emphasis on e-learning and multi-venue hybrid education, LearnVirtual empowers individuals and companies with professional skills and industry intelligence that can be applied in everyday work environments.
