Good BIM or BAD BIM?

Collaborative Construction

Building information models (BIM) provide built industry professionals with an array of tools, views and processes that support efficient delivery of (BIM)X enabled facilities and infrastructure. Good BIM, which supports such delivery, occurs with an unfortunate rarity. Good BIM''s ugly twin, Bad BIM rears its head far more often. Take steps on your next project to limit Bad BIM and maximize Good BIM. Listed below are a few examples of Bad BIM.
