Investment in BIM requires leaders

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

Larry Barton, president of Strang, a 75-year-old architecture, engineering, interior design and construction administration firm in Madison, WI, said their firm takes advantage of outside consulting offered by Eppstein Uhen Architects to help more firms understand BIM strategies — but it that is not all that is needed.

Integrating BIM into a company’s day-to-day work also requires a few key employees who will take the lead in learning the sophisticated comp platform, keep up with changes over time and teach others how to use it, he said.

“You tend to develop champions within your office,” Barton said. “There will be two or three people who really enjoy working on it and make the investment of time and energy into learning the tools. And they, in essence, lead the rest of your firm towards its implementation.”
