Firms need to be intelligently designed to weather recessions and thrive even after their founders retire. In addition to implementing a sound business structure, firms must be nimble, ready to embrace whatever challenges arise while also striving to reduce the impact of the built environment on ecosystems and climate. BIM is one of the best tools firms can employ to both win contracts and design buildings that are as sustainable as possible. This webinar will describe how architectural practices of all sizes can structure their businesses and design sensibilities to survive recessions and prosper, with an emphasis on BIM can help firms achieve their goals.

Patrick MacLeamy, FAIA and Huw Roberts, CEO of GRAPHISOFT® will be discussing how architectural practices of all sizes can structure their businesses and design sensibilities to survive recessions and prosper. Firms need to be intelligently designed to weather recessions and thrive after their founders retire. In addition to implementing a sound business structure, firms need to embrace BIM as the best tool for winning jobs and designing buildings that are as green as possible using current technology.

The presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion focused on how BIM can help firms elevate their design proficiency.
