‘Beyond BIM' panel here on Sept. 19

Lean Construction Institute Cascadia and Seattle Community of Practice will present a panel discussion titled “Beyond BIM — Lean Design” from 7 to 9 a.m. Sept. 19 at the Swedish Club, 1920 Dexter Ave. N. in Seattle.

Organizers say building modeling is old news. Leading design firms now are harnessing cloud computing for rapid design iteration and optimization. Some firms are embedding manufacturing data in building model objects to eliminate the need for shop drawings and “lean” the project supply chain.

Panelists will discuss computational design, generative design, design for manufacturing and other topics. They include Stephen Van Dyck of LMN Architects, Robert Baxter of Magnusson Klemencic Associates, Taylor Boyer of Perkins + Will and Matt Powell of NBBJ. The moderator is Doug Moore of McKinstry.

Cost is $25. Register at https://tinyurl.com/yatw8up5/.
