I was backtracking on something I was reading and wound up on an architectural firm's website in California. For some odd reason, I clicked on their job opportunities and found this post.
How are we going to populate the BIM marketplace over the next few years? Where are people going to learn these skill sets when they're at firms only doing CAD? How are you supposed to find the time to learn everything this is about all of these facets of BIM? How do you collect and maintain all of your "best practices", or as I like to call them, "let's not make that mistake again"?
The people needed for these type of BIM projects just don't exist. You can't just go from being a CAD manager to becoming a BIM manager. There's going to be a second recession coming and it's the technology recession of the BIM brain power. Between workflow, processes, collaboration, all of the new analysis tools coming out, working with cloud rendering and analysis tools, and let's throw in some FM & CObie, LEED, prefabrication and IPD to really make this quite a mess.
As we move away from the importance of line weights and hatch patterns, how are we going to create a pipeline of people who can thrive in a complex BIM World?
Alex C., if you're reading this, good luck filling this job position and let us know how long it takes to find this special person.
