Re: BIM Prevalence

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear Listers,

I see potential for a good exchange of thought looming on the BIM issue since some of the aforesaid opinions are really matching up to our community's discussion following the Russian COFES session held in Moscow this September. I'm off to spend a busy weekend doing some awkwardly accented reciprocal translations, as well as drawing up battle lines and poking at architects and academics.

BIM might be more of a proprietary term than a standard.

Large projects with unique elements that give cause for a great wow factor but are dimensionally challenged and might need Mr. BIM or at least a highly accurate 3-D design.

The majority of construction projects are based on standards and a history of development with craftsmen and professionals that have sorted out making the details to fit and coordinate with estimators and bidding contractors.

Its a mistake to use size of projects to measure success of products and systems used.
