Swinerton Builders and Assemble Systems to Co-Present Data Management Class at Autodesk University

Construction Technology Power User and BIM Software Developer to Share Insights at the US' Largest BIM Software Conference for Design and Construction

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2012) -  With several weeks left leading up to Autodesk University (AU), the largest building information modeling (BIM) conference in the United States, Assemble Systems and Swinerton Builders are proud to announce their co-presentation, "Data Management Best Practices," is nearly sold out. The class will be co-presented by Swinerton's Director of Center for Excellence and past AU educator, James McKenzie, along with Assemble Systems' VP of Development Trent Miskelly, at the November 2012 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Since spring, Swinerton Builders has performed rigorous testing of the Assemble Platform as part of their in-house technology team, Swinerton Labs. The Assemble lab is made up of BIM managers and professionals led by McKenzie, who has more than 25 years of experience in the BIM software industry. McKenzie notes "Revit 3D models contain much rich data important to builders. Getting all the data, geometry, object properties, custom parameters, and more out of Revit's unique data structure quickly and into a usable format is a critical process in model management."

Leading the testing of the Assemble Platform is Swinerton Labs' Rich Creveling, Senior Estimator, Virtual Design & Construction Coordinator. Creveling adds "Assemble provides Swinerton with a capacity to assess the content of a model at a very high velocity. We work increasingly during preconstruction with models created by project design teams. Assemble is very valuable for us in quickly clarifying the modeling practices in use by our design partners."

Trent Miskelly, VP of Development for Assemble Systems, who has been working with Swinerton Labs throughout their testing of the Assemble Platform, states, "The way information is architected inside Autodesk® Revit affects every aspect of the data extraction process. This is an area I feel we as developers address really well. I look forward to sharing our insights with more BIM experts at AU."
