If you want to mandate BIM in your project...

Hi Everyone!

As you know BIM is being mandated in many projects in the Middle East and I had seen many of them so far.

Most of them were pretty strange:))) You do not understand what they want when you read the whole document.

I remember getting confused many times.

But recently I learned more about the people who prepares these BIM Specs and my confusion is over now:))

Well, some of them are prepared by people who attended few BIM Seminars only and think they understands BIM very well.

This is quite dangerous for the owner since BIM is much more deeper than what is shown in the seminars. Plus, nobody shows the handicaps of BIM in the presentations:))

If the specs are prepared by someone without deep experience of both BIM and Construction, be ready to get screwed.

If you want to specify BIM in your project make sure that you know what you are talking about.  Otherwise BIM can be an additional cost rather than saving.

I saw many failures because of this reason!

Please don't be one of them and have a great evening:))
