"BIM has created an outlet to keep young talent in the AECO industry"
K.P. Reedy, Board Member of BuiltTech Labs, explains how this methodology will save the industry
BIM has come to save the industry, Reddy states. If you offer an old-fashion drafting table to a newbie architect he would probably not be interested. BIM has created the need for this new digital talents to remain in the industry. It has made the processes more attractive because they can do amazing things like drawing and modelling in 3D. However, we can't forget the technical aspects of it even if we're going digital.
Reddy has confirmed that initiatives like European BIM Summit are very important because they gather people together. There's a faster kind of cultural adoption, but even in the U.S. although there is a fast-growing economy you still have to explain: why BIM? According to Reddy, the cultural enthusiasm is far ahead what is going on in the US and now it's just more about getting the experience around doing more projects.
