Amador Convention Center 4D Construction Visualization

Today we would like to share a new video we created with the help of TLC Engineering, for their Structural and MEP Revit models, and Prointec, for their Navisworks expertise.  This video focuses on the 4D construction visualiztion of the Exhibition hall for the complex structural systems and gives an overview of the Structural and MEP systems for the Performing Arts Theater and Banquet Hall.

Our Process

On the Amador Convention Center project, RM + TLC have been using Revit to develop Architectural, Interior Design, MEP, and Structural models.  Throughout the process, we have been exporting our models into Navisworks to review clash detection and create visualizations of the project at each stage.


In early June 2014, Ross Jermano from RM+, traveled to Panama to deliver a presentation about our project to a group of local architects.  This presentation focused on RM+’s use of BIM throughout our design process.  On the Amador project, we completed all of our conceptual design work using Sketch Up.  As we moved to Design Develop, our team quickly jumped into Revit to develop the models for each facility and produce early foundation packages.  Construction began on the site soon afterwards.  RM+ TLC continued their work in Revit and Navisworks through Construction Documents to provide a coordinated and thorough set of CD’s for our construction partner, HPC Contratas P&V, to use.

Construction Visualization

The video shown here today, focuses on the Structural and MEP systems developed in TLC Engineering’s Revit models. Through Navisworks Timeliner feature, we can see the construction sequence for the Exhibition Hall design.  The extensive systems of piles are installed first, then loadbearing concrete walls. Finally, the roof framing is added to create the final geometry of the facility.  Also featured in the video is the steel super structure for the Performing Arts Theater entry and the coordination of Structural and MEP systems within the Banquet Hall.
