Applying BIM to designing a building can deliver a plethora of economic, environmental and societal benefits to home builders – that go much further than the advantages of AutoCAD.
Transitioning to BIM platform is more than just a technology or process change; it's a culture change. Architectural Evangelist collects and disseminates best practices as a service to the architects, owners and construction professionals.
Despite all the bold assertions about Revit and its innovative features and flexibility, the scenario remains intact – architectural designers still slip into old "AutoCAD habits" when using AutoCAD Architecture & AutoCAD MEP. Why?

Making a strong decision to move to the BIM world is the very first step of BIM implementation in any project. Once you make decision, stick to it. Do not, at any cost, draw the conclusion at the first obstacle and go back to primary colored lines on the black screen.
The term Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been around for awhile, but in practice, BIM is still in its infancy and is still weighted heavily towards the front end of building design and construction.
Revit is a multi-users design tool that works like a champ on a local area network with all the designers sitting in the same office. But it doesn't fit the operational needs of the larger firms working on a large project from different locations. Let's ride the BIM Cloud!
There are claims that BIM is a game changer where everything will be done differently, and nothing short of full adoption of BIM with the multitude dimensions it claims to cover will suffice. Such claims have been counterproductive...
With the help of BIM, collaborating designers and engineers can in short order make more informed and better coordinated decisions about to what extent a dysfunctional old building should be preserved, remedied or replaced.
A significant proportion of the UK Construction industry remains blissfully unaware of the modern technology and potential benefits that can bestow upon their business, especially for renovations projects. Jose Oliveira explains the reasons...
