043 What is BIM? An Interview with James Salmon


bimAfter meaning to do it for a long time, I finally have an episode on BIM, or Building Information Modelling.

As you may know, BIM is completely changing the construction landscape.  While BIM involves 3D modelling, it is much more than that. It is really revolutionizing the way we do construction, especially how we communicate within project environments.

What I find with BIM is that a lot of people in the construction sector have not yet been introduced to it.  In my case, I know of BIM, I have a pretty good idea of what it is – I even read a book on it – but never had the opportunity to actually work with it.  Whether you are in a similar position or have already been working with BIM, I think my guest today will be able to shed some extra light on the benefits of this technology.
