In this episode, I talk with Dustin Williams, CEO, and co-founder of Remote Optix, and founder of Flywheel AEC, about BIM for civil engineers and how it is used in civil engineering projects. He also tells us about a specific 4-step process his company utilizes on BIM projects to ensure project success.
In this episode of The Structural Engineering Channel podcast, we talk to Marcello Sgambelluri, PE,SE., the Director of Advanced Technology at John A. Martin & Associates. He talks about BIM(Building Information Modeling) and how it is evolving, and also shares his thoughts on the roles that structural engineers and drafters will play during this exciting technological time in structural engineering.
Here Are Some of the Questions We Ask Marcello in This Episode:
- Why is BIM so ever-evolving in the structural engineering industry?
- Do you think engineers of the future will need to keep up with all the technologies, coding, and scripting?
- How can structural engineers learn more about BIM?
- What is the role of structural engineers and drafters in the future?
Here Are Some of the Key Points Discussed in This Episode:
In episode 114 of The Civil Engineering Podcast, I talk with Scott Harrigan, who is the CEO, Co-Founder and Chief Pilot at Harkin Aerial about the use of drones in civil engineering and specifically what civil engineering firms need to know about providing drone services for themselves or hiring outside firms to do so.
Here Are Some of the Questions I Ask Scott About Providing Drone Services:
- What will people in the A/E industries use drones for?
- What is photogrammetry?
- How have the software and programs evolve in the drone industry?
- Talk to us about the regulations and guidelines for using drones.
- Do you work for companies that use drones and/or firms that have no drones at all?
- What are some things that people should be aware of when purchasing a drone?
- When purchasing a drone, what do you need to think about in terms of insurance?
- Explain one example of a project you’ve worked on before?
