About the Author

Finith Jernigan uses proven systems and technology in new ways to help people everywhere move toward a more sustainable and connected world. He is a visionary whose unique style bridges the gap between novice and expert. He is an expert whose creative writing style makes technical information transparent to users at all levels of expertise.

Anyone who has read literature on change in the building industry knows that the focus is often on expert users. Nearly every discussion focuses on technology. There is little attention dedicated to those just getting started. Finith is an exception, introducing new tools and processes into the mainstream, making complex ideas about the future of the built environment clear to everyone. He has made information modeling real for people.

BIG-BIM 4.0 shows how to use your strengths to thrive in the revolutionary changes emerging in the built world. Written from the perspective of BIG BIM, this book expands the concepts in the award-winning BIG-BIM-little-bim—The Practical Approach to Building Information Modeling to connect you to the power and opportunities of the ecosystems that are emerging.

BIG BIM little bim is directly applicable to building industry business processes that increase the effectiveness of building design, construction, and operation. Properly informed designers, contractors, operators and users make real costs reductions that save energy, reduce waste, increase the efficiency of material use and other benefits. With more than 40 percent of the world’s resources focused on building construction and operation, many industry leaders predict that effective use of information models will help fight global climate change.

Finith uses proven systems and technology in new ways to help people everywhere move toward a more sustainable and integrated world. He teaches how to adopt and use a more integrated mode of work and life that streamlines processes, improves visualization, and achieves superior results during design, construction and beyond.
