There is a lot of buzz about how the implementation of 3D design is improving the efficiency of construction activities. This discussion will address how the effective use of technology is changing the way the DESIGN of infrastructure is completed. 3D design has been used for a long time; however, the real efficiency is in how are we can utilize the advancements in the technological tools to integrate the design process to increase value and quality. Thinking about how to produce and deliver the 3D design and how that incorporates estimates, quantities and specifications has as much potential to provide value to the project life cycle as improving construction activities. The process integration includes looking at impacts to the full project lifecycle from planning to construction with a focus on the preliminary and final design stages. New technologies allow us to modify workflows to focus on tasks that provide value and increase efficiency in the development of a project. Using project examples, the discussion will touch on the following key topics. • A brief background on traditional workflows, • Current tools and advancements in technology that are available to us as engineers, and • Different ideas on how we might be able to evolve those workflows as a result of new tools.
