process transformation

Implementing BIM requires more than purchasing a few licenses to Revit and Navisworks; it truly requires a process transformation.
Yesterday, we had a meeting to discuss a presentation on changes that we are making to our process. Some of these things are:
  • No more estimating! The estimating department is changing it's name to Planning and Cost EngineeringTM.
  • New work flows, so that we have the resources to virtually build the project before actual construction begins.
  • New staff - like me! Positions like Building Information Modelers and 4D Logistics Manager are appearing across the industry.
  • Change of philosophy: as John says, "We love our owners dearly, but we are all working for the project."
