The benefits of a BIM-enabled office are obvious for large architecture firms working on mega projects. But does investing in BIM software make sense for smaller firms with less complex projects? This webinar will explore that question with three architects from firms with fewer than 20 employees and a consultant that helps design professionals implement BIM technology. Topics to be covered include: cost/benefit analysis; the pros & cons of using BIM on small commercial buildings and single-family homes; the importance of establishing office modeling standards; and training.
