Time to move forward

AU 2016 Proposals submitted.

Of course I had to wait until the last day to submit, and now the waiting game starts. Having finally made it into the speaker realm at AU last year I want more. My experience was amazing and the people I meet in my class where great. Whether or not I get chosen I plan to start a blog series on these topic in the coming weeks.

My first proposal is on rethinking the Design process and workflow in the AEC industry. I think it’s important that industry take a step back and rethinks how the projects are delivered. more to come on that can of worms.

For my second proposal I jumped into the deep end explaining the importance of BIM Leads. No longer can the AEC industry believe they only need to hire Architects. Time to open our eyes and look for those people that can lead BIM and all its glory to the project finish line. Time to understand BIM Leads are not overhead, they are an integral part of the project.

These two topics are similar in the fact the Architecture world is changing and it’s time we all take that giant leap forward, as Henry Ford simply stated:  “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” Let’s all collaborate on a BIM future and make our project better
