BIM Forum Chicago: When Does Design End and Construction Begin?

By Jeff Yoders | Posted in Articles, BIMForum News

In today’s integrated BIM projects, where does design end and construction begin?

The Summer BIMForum, July 19-20 at the Swissotel in Chicago, will focus on how BIM is used to find the optimal balance of allowing the best decisions to be made at the most appropriate time without impacting construction costs and schedules and how this is shifting when design ends and construction begins.

BIMForum Atlanta: Your Introduction to Evidence-based BIM

By Jeff Yoders | Posted in BIMForum News

Evidence-based design is the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of best evidence from research and practice in making critical decisions, together with an informed client, about the design of each individual and unique building project. EBD has become popular in healthcare design and construction to improve patient and staff well-being, the patient healing process, and for stress reduction and safety for both staff and patients. An evidence-based designer, together with an informed client, makes decisions based on the best information available from research, from project evaluations, and from evidence gathered from the operations of the client. Critical thinking is required to develop an appropriate solution to design problems; however, that gathered pool of information will rarely offer a precise fit with a client’s unique situation and therefore research that is specific to the project’s objectives is almost always required.
