AGTEK Sitework 4D is a building information modeling program designed to conduct takeoff and estimating procedures for earthwork purposes. This program provides an opportunity for the construction management department to implement a building information modeling (BIM) program related to heavy civil construction. Nearly seventy percent of construction management students agree that the BIM programs that they have learned during their time at Cal Poly have been directed toward residential and commercial construction. AGTEK can provide students an opportunity to learn site planning, earthwork estimating, as well as cut and fill diagrams all through a new BIM experience geared toward heavy civil construction. This program can be implemented into either CM-239 construction surveying or CM-314 heavy civil construction management as both curricula involve topics that are included in AGTEK. Students showed a stronger interest in having the program implemented in CM-314 rather than CM-239. Interviews with the current lecturers of both classes yielded two potential learning strategies for learning AGTEK: synchronous and asynchronous. Each option has its own advantages and disadvantages but after review of the AGTEK license agreement the synchronous version would be the more optimal option.
