FRI-A09 - BIM Insights: Transitioning to BIM and Improving Design Efficiency

Friday, October 20
8:30 AM - 10:00 AM


With today’s tight budgets, collaboration requirements, and quick delivery of projects with regulatory or performance-driven guidelines, landscape architects need to work smarter, not harder. Explore the challenges associated with transitioning from traditional CAD platforms to Building Information Modeling (BIM), new efficient work flows, and the benefits/challenges of this change.
