The University of Delaware, Department of Civil Engineering’s Program in Construction Engineering and Management (CEM) recently dedicated a new Building Information Modeling (BIM) Studio in DuPont Hall on the campus in Newark, Delaware. The Studio was made possible through the generosity of Wohlsen Construction Company.
Building Information Modeling is critical in today’s architecture, engineering, and construction industries. It involves a virtual simulation of the building process in three dimensions through modern and next-generation technologies. This, coupled with virtual reality, drone footage, and sophisticated construction technology applications, have changed the way buildings are conceived and constructed in today’s world.
The University of Delaware is providing leading state-of-the-art technologies for its students in Construction Engineering Management to apply building information modeling thru a new BIM Lab established at the University made possible by Wohlsen Construction.
Professors Dr. Mohsin Siddiqui and Dr. Ri Na recently led a tour of the BIM Lab (sometimes called the BIM Cave) at the University with students Andrew Ahlborn, Lindsey Putnam, and Ryan Webber, along with representatives of Wohlsen; Ed McCauley, Vice President of Innovation and Thorpe Moeckel, Vice President of Business Development.
