A Guide to Surviving Another Software Mandate: A Six-Part Series

Table of Contents

Corey Clasen, Implementation Service Manager – MEPF – NA

Picture this: You’re a Specialty Subcontractor that’s been added to a project and the GC decides to mandate Revizto as the coordination software you’ll be using. Before you roll your eyes, because you have to deal with yet another new platform, bear with me – I’m a former Trade Partner with over 15 years of experience in the electrical field and 6+ years of MEPF coordination experience, so I get it!

Using Revizto in that upcoming project is actually an opportunity to test out BIM collaboration technology that can actually benefit and streamline your MEPFP internal processes – that’s right Revizto is not just a tool for GCs. In your spare time you can also check out stories from your peers like Rosendin, Binsky, and Archkey/Sachs, but in the meantime I wanted to invite you to catch on-demand the six-part Revizto Trade Talk series that I hosted last year.  

Part 1: Getting the Most Out of The Issue Tracker

The six part series kicks off with “Getting the Most Out of The Issue Tracker.” In this introductory episode, participants discovered the fundamentals of Revizto, starting with its robust Issue Tracker. Corey shared practical advice for streamlining workflow and on how to get the most value out of the tool to benefit you internally as a trade.

3D BIM: Definition, Modeling, & Software Building information modeling (BIM) may be a very sophisticated idea for less experienced people. The incorrect assumption that BIM is nothing but a new name for a CAD model is still relatively common, even if it is extremely easy to dispute. The overall complexity of BIM methods combined with the deep involvement of 3D modeling in the process is the main topic of this article, and our goal is to explain the nature of the topic. 2024-06-04
