5 Pillars of a successful BIM Implementation | Part 5 - BIM Deliverables

There’s a special irony in our industry: we take pride in our ability to think, plan, and execute construction projects at great levels of detail.

5 Pillars of a Successful BIM Implementation | Part 3 - Roadmap to a BIM framework

There’s no question that BIM delivers new levels of performance for the AEC industry. Architects, engineers, and constructors can easily visualize what is to be built in a 3D simulated environment.

5 Pillars of a Successful BIM Implementation | Part 1 - BIM Manager, Agent of Change

With so many experienced BIM Managers in our industry today, why do organizations and individuals struggle to adopt, grow and support BIM?

In some organizations, the BIM Manager role has become somewhat diluted. This title is being handed out as a catch-all for just about every responsibility that is related to BIM. A quick LinkedIn search for those in BIM Manager roles, for example, returns almost 10,000 results. And if you search for titles that contain the BIM acronym, the number goes up to more than 250,000 people! This gives us a good indication of how many individuals overall may be associated with BIM.
