I'm a few weeks behind on writing about this...although I managed to send an internal email about it earlier.
So the headline (I opted to ignore all comments on this article) is that Wisconsin (specifically the Division of State Facilities) is requiring BIM! In actuality, it is requiring A/E BIM on projects budgeted over $5M (or something like that).
This is definitely a step in the right direction, but it's only the first step (which the state recognizes). Even for "design BIM", they will definitely need to expand and detail their standards. And of course, until they address requirements for builders, they aren't getting the true value.
In any case, it is interesting to review their standards, especially the modifications to the compenstation schedule to reflect the MacLeamy Curve.
