Filled with workflows, case studies, and anecdotes from the front lines, BIG BIM 4.0 leads readers toward understanding and using BIG BIM to create a more sustainable and resilient world. This book reveals the big picture approaches used by many large companies, institutions, and government entities, and used by smaller, agile businesses.
