Scan to BIM 102: Project Planning Best Practices

Scan to BIM projects usually don’t go south during the final stages. It almost always happens before you even start the job. From not fully understanding and communicating the scope of work to not properly accounting for site logistics early on, lack of planning becomes a liability that triggers all kinds of issues that lead to project failure. 

But with Scan to BIM still being relatively new in the industry, what do you even need to consider when creating a successful project plan? Plus, how do you factor remote work into the mix?

In this first Scan to BIM University class of our Spring 2021 semester, you’ll learn project planning best practices, lessons learned, tips, and hacks from our panelists that will help you identify and successfully address critical areas that can break your Scan to BIM projects if not planned properly, and how you can still thrive when working in a remote environment.  

Highlights from the session include:

  • 7:12 – Find out the single most important question to ask your clients when determining the scope of work—the answer will be critical for planning your workflows properly!
