BIM blots: Just finished this... - Dr. Derek Thomson

During one of the many BIM for Construction classes I attended at Autodesk University in December, one of the presenters put up a slide depicting the problem with defining what exactly BIM is.  He used a Rorschach image for the example.  I had been meaning to make a blog post about that and almost forgot about it until I saw the blog post below

Take a look at Derek's image below and tell me if you can see the difference?  Welcome to the nightmare of all of the people involved in a construction project.  Of course, Integrated Project Delivery may change all of that, and the integration of BIM will surely make it better.  We're at a low point, not only in pipelines, but also in the chasm between CAD and BIM.  Mr. Architect, it's not about you and your line weights and hatch patterns, it's about the team of people below and doing everything possible to help them build the building.

It’s for a paper I have to submit tomorrow. Question is, can you see where the interface is between the client and the construction project team? That’s the point I’m trying to make. Real data, from some consultancy of mine…
