Sovereign Power And the Built Environment

Collaborative Construction

As mandates for the use of BIM proliferate long term advocates of BIM – yours truly included – tend to cheer. Many advocates of BIM, consumed by their own hubris, mistakenly believe BIM – or as I define it (BIM)X – serves as a magic elixir, healing ills of all kinds in the built environment. When the legal framework within which you must operate shackles you from the outset all the (BIM)X Pixie Dust in the world won''t save a project.
