The Fiatech AutoCodes Project aims to make the building regulatory process faster, more uniform, and ultimately more competitive by creating electronic code checking capability for the industry to be used with virtual 3-D construction models or building information models. Viewed by many analysts of the capital projects industry as a potential game-changer, the project is now moving into its second development and testing phase with interest from Kaiser Permanente and Target, among others. This session will enable you to:
Describe the automated code review process and how it will help transform the health care industry.
Assess the effects of the AutoCodes Project and the specifics of how it will make the plan checking process more efficient.
Identify additional implications of an industry transition to an electronic AutoCode checking process.
Explain how the AutoCodes Project and electronic plan checking can help standardize regulatory practices within the building industry.
