Description:  
Geoff Camp, Virtual Construction Manager , Gilbane Building Company 
It’s always a wonder as to what happens to a Revit model once it’s been handed off.  Maybe you’re a little apprehensive about giving this valuable piece of information away.  You’re curiosity will be cured and your concerns comforted as we prepare to be bedazzled by Geoff Camp, Navisworks Master, as he shows us how he works his magic in combining BIM models into Navisworks Manage.  Slick movements of the mouse help us glide through the space as if it were a hot knife through butter.  Find out Geoff’s methods for identify problem areas, getting to them quickly and communicating them with the rest of the team.  By examining actual projects where Navisworks was used during the preconstruction and construction phases, we will see how truly an instrumental tool this is to have. 
Q&A session will follow to round up the meeting.


Please RSVP by replying to rsvp@harug.org, no later than 5:00 pm on Tuesday, July 12th
so there can be an accurate count for pizza and refreshments provided by Total CAD Systems, Inc.
