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 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

My BIM wishlist for 2012
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 tongue-in-cheek representation of my ‘dream team’ BIM implementation – bear with me…!
Until last week, I had never heard of instructables.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
In the past few weeks, we have truly seen the start of the conference season
I seem to have heard a lot of people talk about jobs in the past week. And I don’t mean projects that they are working on, but the type of ‘jobs’ that you can’t talk about at work – the ones that aren’t where you are currently working…
When I talk about learning BIM, I could just as well be asking people to refocus their attention to collaborating better…
To some 2012 means the Olympics, to others it means the end of the world. To me it means new software.
Bim is a no-brainer for us, but it gets really exciting when you start to talk about the ’what-ifs’…
