BIM is changing the way architecture firms must approach the design process, and it’s yielding fantastic results.

During this presentation, learn why it is no longer necessary for teams to spend the majority of the project schedule in documentation. Explore how BIM tools, such as Revit, will give you more time to:

  • identify client needs
  • review design options
  • use technical data to evaluate solutions
  • streamline the design for greater efficiency and lower client costs
