Last week, we received a complete building information model from a surprising (but exciting) place: an owner! The Director of Construction from a sophisticated international retail corporation sent us a link to their project collaboration page.
From there, we were able to download their latest Revit files. Now what? We're going to put together a pricing program for the project based on the model!
Through our involvement with the BIMForum, I have been exposed to other VDC-savvy owners (i.e. GSA, USACE, Johnson & Johnson, Disney, CitiGroup, etc.), but this is my first opportunity to be involved in a project with one.
