Communicating in a BIM World
March 26, 2021
As early as 1962, Douglas Englehart presaged BIM as “an evermore-detailed, interlinked structure, which represents the maturing thought behind the actual design.”
Since this early vision, building designers have wholeheartedly adopted building information modeling (BIM), software-based design, and 3-D modeling. While BIM adoption has been praised for bringing efficiency to the construction process and benefits in coordination, it has also placed a new set of pressures on the structural designer.
