BIM – BEYOND A SOFTWARE SOLUTION OR COMPANY CHANGE

I don’t know about you…. but I feel like a change….

I have been in the world of Revit for 6 years now and I am a big fan of the software and still use it at work and in business but I really feel it’s time for me to expand way beyond just Revit. I’ve been swimming in the world of automated drawings, virtual building masses, live schedules and data base formulations for many years now. But I feel I’ve only scratched the surface of what is possible… and only had a glimpse of how Systems could change our world and how we function as a whole within the industry, how we communicate and interact and move forward into a more cohesive, streamlined and efficient response to designing, simulating, analysing, building and managing our built environment.

In my previous posts I have tried to collate some sort of archive of some of the knowledge and experience that I have gained in the Revit arena through Family creation and content and System development that is floating in this head of mine. I have taken the time to list many of my thoughts on Family creation on this blog in the hope that some people may find my notes useful.

From time to time I will still add a trinket here and there of Revit specific insights but I have set this blog up with a different agenda in mind…. and that is to invite some colleagues, strangers and friends to work with me to elaborate on where BIM ( in the context of an Industry solution) may evolve.

This research project is about looking beyond a firm based solution and I am engaged and intrigued by the enormous challenge that lies for the industry as a whole and how we intend to deal with the information overload and congestion that is already rife in our industry.

So feel free to join me on this debate if you wish as I grab a warm coffee, or smooth glass of wine and recline for a while and wonder what the future brings and how I, how we, can be a part of the solution….
