Collaborative Construction Blog: Public Entities Adopting BIM

Great news everybody...we now have a third state requiring BIM for state projects. Welcome to the BIM Boom Ohio. It's only a matter of time before every state requires BIM. You do realize that all they have to do is change 3 letters in their RFPs. It's a simple as changing the deliverable required from DWG to RVT or BIM. Three little letters and all those nasty change orders, addenda, delays, errors, omissions and everything else negative associated with CAD designs just float away into the ether and the projects come in on time and on budget.

Special thanks to James Salmon, the IPD guru/attorney for finding this one. Tic Toc my friends. It's only a matter of time. I think it's time to buy more Autodesk stock too.

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!
I've been advised that Ohio can now be added to the list of states with a robust BIM initiative. The Buckeye State joins, Wisconsin and Texas as an early adopter of BIM technologies in the public arena.
Of course, California, the GSA, the USACE and Indiana University, among other entities have embraced BIM in certain circumstances, but those three states, Wisconsin, Texas and Ohio are, to date, the only states to adopt formal BIM policies.
In Ohio, the State Architect's office is leading the way. I will provide a link to the announcement when they issue a news release.
Collaborative Construction is monitoring BIM adoption by public entities because public entities that adopt BIM quickly realize the need to modernize their procurement statutes and regulations as fully integrated BIM solutions require fully integrated teams. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is required to fully utilize BIM and IPD cannot be achieved efficiently and effectively under antiquated legal instruments that pit all stakeholders on major projects one against another.

Public procurement officers must be released from the shackles of the Design Bid Build process if the true benefits of BIM are to be realized.

In the coming months Collaborative Construction will be working with interested parties throughout to establish IPD as an approved project delivery method in the state of Texas. Anyone interested in joining the effort should contact James L. Salmon of Collaborative Construction.
