Bimal Patwari to Showcase BIM’s Role in Assembly Line Manufacturing at AEC Buildtech
The inaugural AEC BuildTech Conference & Expo is a unique event spotlighting the latest design & building processes, products, and emerging technologies. This interactive, three-day convention — scheduled for April 30 to May 2 in Rosemont, Illinois — is designed to inform and inspire today’s entire building team, from innovative and influential architects to engineers, contractors, facility managers, owners, and more.
Educational sessions will include six separate tracks focused on HVACR/mechanical systems, building envelope, general contracting, flooring, plumbing, and roofing. As an attendee, you will walk away from this event with the connections and knowledge necessary to leverage tomorrow’s building processes and construction technologies.
Leading up to the event, Engineered Systems will showcase several of the presenters in the HVACR/mechanical systems track on www.esmagazine.com.
Bimal Patwari is the founder of Pinnacle Infotech, a provider of BIM services to the construction industry. He has worked extensively with architects, engineers, consultants, and government agencies in the U.S., Europe, Australia, and the Middle East and has used his vision, strategic outlook, and meticulous roadmap of the best BIM practices to improve efficiency, provide fast turnaround, and reduce costs for construction projects worldwide.
At 3-4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30, Patwari will present “Assembly Line Manufacturing for Construction Using BIM—Why, When, and How.”
In his presentation, Patwari will discuss how BIM is causing a paradigm shift by industrializing construction and setting up off-site assembly lines for manufacturing modules that can be assembled on-site by a lean team.
“Until recently, the construction industry had been suffering a technology bypass, relying on centuries-old processes to manage projects that are getting more complex and demanding faster execution by the day,” he said. “We’ll present case studies from several iconic, global project executions where assembly line manufacturing construction processes were deployed for amazingly fast construction, reducing the on-site work, wastages, and costs.”
Engineers are continually looking for more efficient and improved methods for project delivery, and prefabrication and modularization are fast becoming key to the success of construction projects. As a relatively new concept, Patwari insists this approach demands the attention of all engineers craving for excellence.
“Prefabrication benefits the MEP sector in many ways, including time, quality, and efficiency,” Patwari said. “These key benefits are achieved by using prefabrication as a parallel construction method. By manufacturing off-site, in parallel with the construction of the main building structure on-site, many of the dependencies and risks associated with traditional construction are eliminated.”
Patwari said he is looking forward to meeting a brand new group of attendees at the inaugural AEC BuildTech Conference and Expo.
“With our ardent belief in what we are planning to discuss, and the relevance of the topic in the context of the contemporary construction industry, we are sure our presentation will be lauded by the entire audience,” he said. “AEC BuildTech has granted us a platform where members from all trades will be available under one single roof. There are many fantastic topics that will be discussed. We’re excited to be a part of most of these discussions and look forward to learning a lot about the disruptive new technologies that are prevailing in the global construction industry.”
