There is a widely shared perception that small firms and sole practitioners cannot take advantage of Building Information Modeling (BIM) due to such factors as its cost, complexity, training time, and productivity for small projects. This presentation will demonstrate how BIM has enhanced their practices and enabled them to be more efficient. Participants will see first-hand the benefits of BIM and how this technology is better positioning smaller firms to compete in the evolving architecture industry.
1. Identify the benefits of a BIM-enabled process for small firms.
2. Learn how a BIM projects' workflow can act as a catalyst for creating a collaborative approach to Sustainable Design on projects of all sizes.
3. Understand how new 3D viewing technology allows BIM modelers to rapidly communicate their designs with others using computers, tablets or smart phones.
4. Understand how the use of intelligent building materials within BIM elements can provide more accurate energy modeling.
