FOCUS ON TECHNOLOGY
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the hottest topic in the construction industry and for good reason. Architects use BIM tools and process to deliver better designs; engineers use BIM to ensure designs meet codes and performance benchmarks. General contractors are using BIM to build projects first on the computer before ever winning the job, and owners are leveraging the "digital double" to manage and maintain their facilities with more predictability and efficiency.
