Project of the Year Award
We are pleased to report that the Sutter Health California Pacific Medical Center: Van Ness & Geary Campus (CPMC VNGC) project—a complex 12-story, 1 million square foot hospital—won the Healthcare Project of the Year Award at the 2017 Bluebeam eXtreme Conference in August 2017. The Modulus Consulting team provided BIM coordination, structural design modeling, and trade contractor modeling on the project.
In addition to working on the project, Ben Alfonso, Modulus BIM Project Manager, and Grant Johnson, Modulus Senior BIM Specialist, joined representatives from HerreroBoldt Juan Restrepo, OSHPD & Commissioning Manager, and Joshua Mercado, Senior BIM Manager, at the conference to present a multifaceted case study of the VNGC project's groundbreaking use of Bluebeam:
- Implementing digital plan review via Bluebeam Studio with California’s Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development to improve approval turnaround times and eliminate paper waste
- Optimizing PDF setup for efficient drawing navigation; and tracking design changes and communicating them to the designers, contractor, and reviewer
- Centralizing design change information from disparate locations through hyperlinking
- Leveraging data in Bluebeam’s Markups List to develop progress metrics using business intelligence software
