Hello Casey,
Our company (Jacobs) has been using BIM on several of our new building projects.  Our company is moving to BIM on all projects since that seems to be the future.  The transition is like moving from the drafting board to AutoCAD.  Since all the disciplines are "in-house" coordination is simpler.
Revit from Autodesk has been used but we are actually starting another project on Triforma.

We haven?t done a BIM project yet, but we are looking to do an upcoming project in Revit for the first time because the architectural firm uses Revit.  We figure this would be a good time to try it out and get some experience using it.  I?m the lucky duck who gets to learn how to use it, so hopefully I won?t make a mess of things.  Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated. 


Sorry Casey?didn?t exactly answer your question.

There is an article on "Building Design & Construction" interviewing with David Bleiman, S.E. on BIM.

I'm curious as how many structural firms (California and others) have actually integrated BIM (Building Information Modeling) into the design process?
