[box]A note from Enoch: The AIA is hosting a special webinar this Friday, March 9, 2012, entitled: BIM for Small Projects II: Case Studies in Innovative BIM Use by Small Firms and Sole Practitioners. One of the presenters, Jared Banks, AIA, of Shoegnome.com gives us a teaser of his presentation. I look forward to viewing this webinar and discussing it with those of you who are able to make it.[/box]
When we read about BIM, it's usually about large firms doing large projects: SOM, HOK, skyscrapers in Australia, airports in Japan, etc. We don't often hear about small cabins in Minnesota or restaurants in Maryland done by tiny firms. As one of the panelists for the AIA-TAP webinar on BIM for small projects, I am excited to share insights on how BIM works in residential architecture from my 4 1/2 years as the BIM manager at SALA Architects in Minnesota. And I'm here to tell you that BIM is right for any size project with any size budget. Of course it's not easy making BIM work. And if you haven't had some failures with BIM, then you probably aren't trying hard enough. So I'll also be sharing what's worked, what hasn't, and what I'm looking to try next.
