While building information modeling (BIM) is traditionally thought of as being effective on large, complex projects, more and more architects are also using it on single-family residential projects to lower costs, speed construction process, and make better-performing, greener buildings. Hear from architects using BIM for residential work about the benefits-and some of the challenges.
• Discuss how BIM can be used to improve the design and construction process. • Explain how BIM can be used to make better-performing buildings. • Identify the advantages to implementing a BIM-enabled process on smaller projects. • Discuss challenges to implementing a BIM-enabled process on smaller projects.
