New York Architecture + Interior Design Message Board › Are we putting the cart before the horse?
Have we adopted BIM technologies too soon?
It seems to me that several companies have incorporated one or more BIM suites with the hope and intention of developing or adopting an efficient workflow... post-purchase.
At the heart of BIM is the supposition that the information will be shared.
Is the information being shared?
Or are we so enthralled by the potential of modeling, rendering and the promise of developing a robust database that all previous profitability metrics have gone out the window?
Why does it seem as though the coordination and workflow have taken a back-seat to new technology?
In the past profit was to be made by ensuring things were done right the first time.
Now it seems as though keeping up with the Jones's and impressing our patrons with a virtual model, with the underlying hope that we'll make money even if we're neither efficient or proficient is the status quo.
Workflow & profitability or a new toy to show off?
What are your thoughts...
