1st Quarter 2010 BIM Strategy

Most design and build firms are experiencing a work slowdown, so this is a good time to begin using staff to investigate the value of BIM to the firm and incorporate this as part of a process improvement.  Designers (e.g. architects and engineers) have a different “use case” for BIM than builders do.   Designers: presentation to Owners, marketing efforts, document preparation, coordination, etc..  Builders: Yes, coordination (and clash detection), marketing presentation to Owners, communication with field crews, layout and planning, staging, cost-control, etc.  The use depends on the tools selected, and each industry may have different answers.  Post a question if you want some insight into softwasre selection.
