Each of us has a role in today’s connected world. BIG-BIM 4.0 lays out a systematic approach to establishing a BIG-BIM ecosystem and provides step-by-step examples of how to successfully use BIM to improve our entire built environment—buildings, bridges, roads, energy systems, water services, planes trains, automobiles or anything we build. But there are many construction industry examples included because much of our energy and water use occurs in our buildings. Develop confidence using a variety of tools inside that ecosystem—in a matter of days—Not years.
