The construction industry has become one of the largest professions to struggle with effectively implementing technology. As the industry heads into the future, more and more technology will be needed to increase efficiency and reduce cost. Cal Poly, one of the leading universities for industry recruitment, needs to teach the new generation of builders to be able to implement BIM/VDC into the industry. In this project called the BIM Cube, the overall goal is to give Cal Poly students a better understanding of model coordination and clash detection. This paper outlines the preconstruction services required for the eventual construction of the BIM Cube. These services entail three major components; a virtual 3D model, a construction schedule, and a cost estimate. This paper outlines the steps taken acquire this project, how the scope was completed, and the lessons learned from this experience.
