Historical Note/ Credentials

The Place Where It Happened

It all started in 2005 when a group of industry practitioners and owners attended a presentation about a Lucas Film project. The team used 3D modeling to refine the design, as well as simulate the construction process. The project was an overwhelming success, and the audience was so overwhelmed, you could hear a pin drop.

Technology brought the team together and allowed everyone to learn from different perspectives, communicate with clarity, and create trust and confidence in a jointly developed plan that works for the project and all participants.

A few of the professionals present at the meeting saw an opportunity to keep this momentum going, and the BIMForum was born. Today, these technological practices are common on many projects and have helped create positive change in our industry. The BIMForum has been a catalyst in this process by being the place where the visioning, discourse, and the learning takes place.
