Why BIM is in trouble.

Building Information Management

To me it is very telling of the educational and cultural issues that are preventing the widespread adoption of BIM. As architects we get enormous benefits from using BIM, from being able to do more complicated and therefore better designed buildings to doing more with less staff. So “BIM can not be leveraged without the input and consideration of FM” is simply not true, and a great misunderstanding in the AEC industry. Read this post and please comment.
