Limbach Engineering & Design Services (LEDS) is presenting at this year’s Advancing Building Estimation (ABE) conference in Dallas,Texas. Their presentation, “How Mechanical Contractors Have Leveraged BIM to Improve the Speed & Accuracy of Cost Estimating,” addresses the lean advantages of BIM from engineering to construction via the utilization of the Limbach Modeling & Production System (LMPS). They will also cover lessons learned and the future of BIM in mechanical estimating and construction.
Now in its third year, the conference promises over 400 preconstruction and virtual design & construction (VDC) professionals an array of breakout tracks and seminars on construction estimating best practices. Many of these tracks and seminars have taken a different form from previous years, however. ABE recently announced the addition of “dedicated tracks for electrical and mechanical estimating and sessions to optimize the relationship between GCs and trades.” LEDS President, Timothy Ward, P.E. and BIM Estimating Manager Lumin Abraham step out this year as speakers, leading this new initiative for the mechanical estimating track in particular. They are scheduled to present on Tuesday, May 15 at 11:40 AM.
The conference agenda indicates more exciting content with discussions on the latest in 5D BIM with Robins & Morton, McCarthy and Clark Construction; Getting That Bid Done Quicker with The Austin Company; Adopting New Tech with Balfour Beatty; and Hearing from the Owners such as The Howard Hughes Corp and University of Utah.
