Home Sweet BIM

For architects embarking upon the design of a new or remodeled home, they are discovering a new kind of residential client. More sophisticated and informed than ever, today’s homeowners are tapping into popular social media sites, like Houzz and Pinterest, where design ideas and photos are searchable and available. Architects and clients need a way to clearly, quickly, and easily communicate their design ideas, in both 2D and 3D, and BIM is the ideal platform.  Building information modeling enables the architects to model and detail as much as needed, while being able to share ‘high level design’ with the clients.
