The benefits of building information modeling (BIM) tools yield the greatest advantage when used across an integrated project team.  According to many BIM proponents, the rewards multiply when the technology is deployed along with a delivery method that fosters a collaborative environment and ensures early involvement of key stakeholders.  Design and construction team members working on a 289-bed hospital complex on the Mission Bay campus of the University of California, San Francisco, are relying on such a process.  Although the approximately $1.5 billion project will not be complete until 2014, they are already realizing benefits.
