LAS VEGAS, Nevada, November 2, 2017 – SSOE Group (www.ssoe.com), a global project delivery firm for architecture, engineering, and construction management, announced today that Department Manager, VDC Global Initiatives, Lauren Collier, Associate AIA; Charles Berteaux IV, BIM / VDC Section Manager Advanced Technology Strategic Business Unit; and Mark LaBell Jr., Senior VDC Technical Leader have been selected to speak at Autodesk University 2017. The event will be held November 14 – 16, 2017 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Lauren Collier’s presentation titled, “Safety First – with BIM 360 Field” will “safely” introduce how to integrate BIM 360 Field software into a construction safety program. The presentation will explore the creation of custom checklists and how to create templates for consistency across projects. In addition, it will guide participants through the application and provide tips and tricks for successful data collection. The second part of the presentation will take an interactive look at the BIM 360 API and share live project dashboards as an alternative to stagnant weekly or monthly summaries—emphasizing how the software can be used to make safer decisions on projects. She is scheduled to present on Wednesday, November 15th at 9:15 a.m. For more information on this session or to register for the conference, click here.

She holds a Master of Architecture from Savannah College of Art and Design and a Bachelor of Art and Architecture from Miami University. Her creative passion lies in Lean, constant improvements, and innovative model / data use solutions for design and construction operations. Lauren leads a group of VDC technical leaders and model managers whose focus is implementing new innovative technologies and best practices in design and construction.
Charles Berteaux will present, “New BIM Managers Startup Guide,” to educate BIM managers or individuals looking to hire, or become a BIM Manager themselves, but have no idea where to start. BIM management requires an extremely diverse set of management skills. This role is often called upon to provide tips, tricks, technologies, tools, and strategies to better manage the company’s BIM environment. A BIM Manager must have the ability to tackle problem identification, problem solving, and user motivation. This class will give participants insights and resources to be an effective BIM Manager and/or help them hire the right BIM Manager. Berteaux is scheduled to present on Tuesday, November 14th at 9:15 a.m. For more information on this session or to register for the conference, click here.
