  • Cliff S. Moser, MSQA, AIA, LEED AP (Partnering model) - VP Operations and Healthcare Practice, CADFORCE Inc.
This session will involve an interactive discussion about streamlining the adoption of the BIM model in small architectural practices. It will cover the ways of collaborating and working with BIM providers and colleagues in order to ramp up quickly and effectively in providing professional services. Why do small firms have an advantage in using outside sources for the BIM process? Because they can easily tailor their work flow to the different process that BIM demands, having only a small investment in digital, hardware and communication overhead or in tech personnel. This is a strategic advantage because in order to truly take advantage of BIM there must be a complete overhaul of the traditional work flow process.
