“BIMForum is about so much more than modeling. It’s about a-ha moments, new connections, and renewed inspiration.”

Our mission

BIMForum exists to drive practical implementation of technology and processes to improve the future of the built environment.

PRACTICAL IMPLEMENTATION

BIMForum’s primary goal is to get the rubber of innovation on the road of the creation and operation of the built environment.

IMPROVE THE FUTURE OF THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT

What do we mean by “improve”?  We believe the industry should strive for built-environment creation and operation processes that are:

Profitable

If the processes of planning, designing, and building the built environment are not profitable the best people won’t get involved.

Sustainable

The creation and operation of the built environment accounts for a huge portion of resource consumption and greenhouse gas emission.  The industry must strive to reduce these impacts.

Resilient

The best buildings have a long life cycle – they must be able to withstand natural disasters and to accommodate changing occupancy needs.

Equitable

The built environment must serve all of its users equitably.

Core Values – the way we work

Collaborative

We recognize that the best ideas come from cross disciplinary collaboration, that when multiple points of view, priorities, and knowledge sets are brought to bear on a problem the resulting solution is usually better than any single discipline could have achieved.

Inclusive

The built environment affects us all, both in its creation and in its function of supporting human activity.  Ethically we should all be included in its design and construction, and pragmatically inclusion of multiple viewpoints creates richer and more effective collaboration.

Innovative

We do not limit ourselves to solving existing problems – sometimes a new idea will expose a problem we didn’t know we had.  When we see a “solution looking for a problem” we strive to find a problem.

Trusted

Over its decade + existence BIMForum has gained the trust of the industry by producing reliable, practical tools.  We recognize that to keep this trust we must continually earn it.
