Project Description:

Indianapolis, Indiana Temple

Indianapolis, Indiana Temple

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Indiana Temple is a single-level building with an end spire encompassing approximately 22 to 23,000 square feet. Virtual Building Logistics was brought onto the Indiana Temple Project by Shiel Sexton Company. VBL provided initial model review services to evaluate the usability of the Architectural, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Fire Protection and Plumbing design models for coordination purposes. Additionally, VBL offered to enhance the Architectural and Structural models should the review find that there was not enough detail to assist in the coordination process.

VBL was available on-site at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Indiana Temple, assisting the Shiel Sexton team in evaluating and enhancing their Building Information Modeling process. VBL offered the following suggestions:

–       Establish file naming conventions

–       Create a base folder structure on the Shiel Sexton QuickMix website

–       Create base drawings in CAD and Navisworks

–       Set up collision tests and training in Navisworks software during the coordination process.

Shiel Sexton also requested VBL be available for the initial Coordination Kickoff Meeting, where VBL could answer questions during a review of the Shiel Sexton Building Information Modeling Standards. VBL was also requested to continue involvement at the first coordination meeting. At this meeting, all building trades will review coordination model.
