How do you reconcile bim’s present with its future?
The chances of being caught out on a lack of BIM knowledge have risen significantly
I’m a self confessed twitter addict, but since the New Year, I must admit that I have been a little quiet (by my standards anyway).
My BIM wishlist for 2012
A look back at the highlights from this year’s Autodesk University
I was copied in on a report last week. It came from a ‘lessons learnt’ workshop that was held on a large project we have been working on for over 3 years
In the past few weeks, we have truly seen the start of the conference season
I’ve been absent from my post for a few weeks because I was foolish enough to take a holiday, and the ensuing backlog of meetings and emails has taken its toll.
I was asked to speak at a conference last week, and as the invite extended to the full day, I decided to sit in the morning session ahead of my slot to see what it was all about.
I’ve now had this conversation three times in the last week, so in typical fashion, I thought I’d share it with you all.
OK, so I took a holiday. Sorry it’s been so long, but I actually had to stop writing this blog and get on with some work. Everything’s fine now though, back to normal.
One of the first things that I say about BIM when I first introduce it to anyone is that it is all about people, and it doesn’t replace the need to talk.
Until last week, I had never heard of instructables.
My tongue-in-cheek representation of my ‘dream team’ BIM implementation – bear with me…!
I was a little bleary eyed on Sunday morning when I turned the TV on, so I was pretty happy when I realised it was time for BBC Click.
I spent some time last week back in my role as a bim coordinator, part of which involves helping to advise a major contractor on its national 4D implementation strategy.
Before I went away on my holiday, I was invited to participate in the upcoming revision of the AEC (UK) Bim Standard for Revit.
A somewhat controversial proposal
I’ve been busy this week, writing a guest blog for the NBS and something that I discussed in that post came up again today, so I thought I’d expand on my point here.
I have no doubt that BIM is now coming to our shores - my question is how quickly BIMwash will follow, if it isn’t already here…
