Jerod Hoffman Speaks at PSSC 2013

November 4, 2013 – Jerod Hoffman, PE, spoke at the 2013 Pacific Structural Steel Conference held in Singapore on October 11. Addressing an international audience and focusing on steel construction, Jerod described how building information modeling (BIM) increasingly is being leveraged in the United States as a tool for speedier and more cost-effective project delivery during construction phases. The main focus of his presentation was how to move from using BIM in traditional silos to something Jerod calls “Integrated BIM,” which can be considered a subset of integrated project delivery (IPD).

Jerod is a licensed professional engineer and a principal at Meyer Borgman Johnson. He leads the firm’s efforts to leverage BIM as a tool for speedier and more efficient project delivery in the areas of digital joist procurement, steel frame and connection design, light gauge design, and BIM models with construction level detailing.
