As a previous owner of a medium-sized Architectural practice, I bring to the table knowledge and understanding of the challenges of meeting client needs, process development, technology implementation and change management.
The deliverables of an Architectural practice are evolving. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is becoming mainstream, and we are seeing deliverables move from the traditional drawings, specifications, and schedules. Clients are beginning to ask for BIM deliverables for visualisation, coordination, estimation, and facility management purposes.
Unlike most BIM experts I do not believe in doing BIM just because you can. I believe in developing processes that enable an Architectural practice to meet the needs of its clients today and into the future, with a clear purpose that is aligned with a business case and an implementation plan. A review of any business and its capabilities needs to not only investigate current outputs from their BIM authoring software but really interrogate the business at all levels.
