Virtual Drive In Workshop coming October 2nd 10:30am

Join other MNAPPA members for a virtual drive-in workshop.

 
HGA’s Ben Pielhop will be presenting:  Virtual & Augmented Reality for Facilities Management

Virtual reality experiences, computer models, and augmented reality are technologies that are slowly being used in our everyday life. This presentation will share how the building industry has been using these tools over the past 3-4 years, but also show specific opportunities for how engineers, facility operators, and maintenance staff can take advantage of the technology using recent project examples .  Items discussed will include: virtual record drawings that can be accessed from your phone, abilities to virtually see through walls, and embedding smart information in modeled elements.

Ben Pielhop is a mechanical engineer with Hammel, Green and Abrahamson, Inc. (HGA).  Ben has over 10 years of experience in the mechanical engineering field and has been a licensed PE since 2015.  He is also HGA’s BIM lead for the mechanical engineering department  

Invitations will sent out soon.
