In the years that followed, du Pont used the grounds to satisfy his love of gardening and by the 1920s it had blossomed into a full public conservatory call Longwood Gardens.

When construction firms use 3-D building modeling, the client benefits from better decision-making and more precise construction methods that lead to lower costs. The post-project uses for an electronic model are rarely considered. But Texas State University has a plan to utilize the 3-D model generated for its University Events Center project to improve the upkeep of the building long after the last worker has left the site.

Data from building systems will be incorporated into the model so that maintenance staff can call up the design, click on an air handler unit, for example, and see the upkeep schedule and performance for that piece of equipment. “The university has kind of taken the use of modeling to the next level,” says Eric Wildt, project manager for Turner Construction, the firm managing the project.
