WORKFLOW & COLLABORATION / Re: Working with Consultants

Other than making it a contractual requirement, the best option may be education. You may need to show them the benefits that BIM has, not only for your sake, but also theirs. Show them that their workflow can be improved and provide support when they need it. It may be a little more work for you to help guide them, but should payoff when you can properly coordinate in 3D.
Looking forward to the event - I will be bringing a few from my office

I have a few smaller consultant firms that use Revit as a '2D drafting tool', other than refusing to have them on projects what else has anyone found that may work in this collaboration issue? FYI this is a Structural consultant and having a 3D representation of their model is desperately needed.

... but they are usually too heavy (LOD 400+) to be integrated in most of the BIM software used by designers even navisworks...

That's surprising to me - I don't think I've really come across anything yet that couldn't be viewed in Navisworks.
My understanding is that most curtain wall manufacturers are working with solidworks. We have received IFC files from solidworks models but they are usually too heavy (LOD 400+) to be integrated in most of the BIM software used by designers even navisworks. Would have been nice to compare design intent with detailed curtain walls but no success  >:( ...
Processins time (modeling) is one variable

Integration time (interoperability) is another one.

Based on the amount of time spent on each one,  should a decision be made about which solution between "integrated software suite" or "best of the market" should be used

Processins time usually is a bigger chunk, so going for integrated might slow you down at the end. But it varies from one company to another

At the time being, none of the big software company can pretend they have the best in each discipline.

Thank you Carl,

Have you worked with other sub contractors?

Curtain walls, cladding, etc...

Can anyone share their experience working on a project with an IPD project delivery system in Canada.  How was the contract generated and if it was modeled after Consensus Docs or the AIA Contracts.
