Please RSVP by April 24 for wine and cheese counts

1.5 CES LUs

Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Site Information Modeling (SIM) applications provide us with the necessary tools to carry out well-designed and well-planned projects that save both time and money. These same BIM and SIM tools can also be used to help make informed decisions and create responsible, sustainable designs. This presentation will look at case studies of both architecture and landscape architecture projects that utilized intelligent BIM objects and tools to achieve low-impact, sustainable designs.
