The Spring BIM Forum wrapped up in Miami, Florida just the other day. I didn’t go but I caught some of the tweets that were flying around, at what seemed like a different look into the world of BIM. They didn’t focus on the technology but the “Human Side of BIM”.
Some tweets that stood out for me:
@johnmyers_VDC: BIM is no longer a marketing or corporate initiative. It has become a survival mechanism. #humanBIM #BIMForum”
@jtocci2: DISC profiles are an awesome tool for understanding team dynamics. @GilbaneBuilding uses it when kicking off colocation projects. #HumanBIM
John Tocci Jr.@jtocci2: “The weak don’t get BIM… And I don’t lose sleep over the weak” @theBIMForum panel isn’t mincing words. #humanBIM
John Tocci Jr.@jtocci2: More life lessons at @theBIMForum manipulation doesn’t work, peer pressure does. #humanBIM
Brian Skripac@BrianSkripac: Focus on creating a dialogue rather than a discussion…dialogues promote learning #humanBIM
Brian Skripac@BrianSkripac: In the Information Age leaders create channels for collaboration and sharing knowledge #humanBIM
Brian Skripac@BrianSkripac: Well said – Overlap is necessary but duplication is wasteful #humanBIM
Did you follow the event? Do you have a favourite tweet? I want to hear about it in the comments.
I started to cry I was laughing so hard.
“Thought you would appreciate my search I did…” – one of my colleagues.
I can never remember what border controls what for curtain walls. Just so I don’t forget.
Border 1 = Start Point
Border 2 = End Point
Border 1 = Base
Border 2 = Top
Which side is Exterior?
Start Left, End Right = Exterior on the top.
Start Right, End Left = Exterior on the bottom.
Start Top, End Bottom = Exterior on the right.
Start Bottom, End Top = Exterior on the left.
Once a wall gets flipped it becomes trial and error to figure out which is start and end. Come on Devs, give us some bread crumbs and make it a little easier to figure out.
I was sitting at home when a tweet from The B1M caught my attention – “Cutting the crap” on BIM.
Nice. I want to hear all about it.
Can you really summarize BIM with 5 bullet points to focus on… or 7 bullets not to focus on? Not really, but blog posts are not novels and there were a couple of points I really liked.
