Events: Applying BIM to a Historic Structure

Revit User Groups - Join us in February to explore the San Francisco War Memorial Veterans Building. Built in 1932,  it is one of the last major American Buildings constructed in the Beaux–Arts style. Standing across the street from the City Hall, it is part of a state and local historic district, and is a designated local historic landmark. In 2011, the City of San Francisco initiated a $96 million renovation project, driven by the need for a seismic upgrade. The project team used Revit for coordination purposes during design. The contractor used both Navisworks and Tekla for coordination during construction. Major structural work is now complete, and the project is on schedule to open later this year. This presentation will focus on the costs and benefits of applying BIM to a historic structure, as well as the unique challenges the team faced during construction.
