So your excellent small design team has pitched for that great project with big technical and BIM design requirements. Suddenly you are awarded the project and need to build up your tech and production capacity quickly and professionally. Do you do it in-house and try to borrow to carry the overhead, or do you grab the tiger by the tail and form alliances that are flexible? How do you stay in control of the beast?

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.
