Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) professionals are leveraging 4D construction modeling to drive significant value in workflows that once involved a lot of risk and inefficiencies during the construction phase of a project.

4D modeling, an acronym for 4-dimensional modeling, refers to the intelligent linking of individual 3D CAD components or assemblies with time- or scheduling-related information. The term 4D refers to the fourth dimension: time, i.e. 3D plus time. 4D modeling enables project participants (architects, designers, contractors, clients) to plan, sequence the physical activities, visualize the critical path of a series of events, mitigate the risks, report, and monitor the progress of activities through the lifetime of the project.

During this #BIMTalk, Omar will focus on the impact of 4D Modeling on Construction Planning. Omar Habib is the Founder of Constructor and a 4D Planning and Project Control Specialist. He has worked on over 25 BIM projects with international prestigious companies. He is a Certified Revit, Navisworks, and Synchro Pro. As an instructor, he has trained +700 Engineers in the construction management and BIM field. He provides training on Bentley Synchro Pro, Autodesk Navisworks, Trimble Vico office, Asta Powerproject, and BEXEL Manager.

The BIM Africa #BIMTalk (September Edition) is a periodic learning-based virtual program. Join in on Friday, September 25th, 2020 at 3 pm GMT.
