Scott Chatterton discusses what building owners should consider when using BIM for wood building design
Take a listen as the Construction Record’s Warren Frey speaks with BIM One Director Scott Chatterton about building information modelling (BIM) in the world of wood buildings. Today, engineered wood systems have the potential to transform the building industry as wood lends itself to off-site construction techniques—for example, modern prefabricated light-frame units, mass timber and hybrid systems—which can be factory-produced to high levels of accuracy for speedy, reliable installation on-site while benefiting from integrating technology into the construction workflow.
Recently, BIM One and SCIUS Advisory developed a guide to offer an overview for building owners and design practitioners of what BIM can do— Building Information Modeling for Wood Buildings: An Introductory Guide.
The interview covers a lot of ground including:
- BIM and wood construction working together
- Wood and carbon capture
- BIM and deconstruction and reusing wood for material for new structures
