It's not the software what brings success, it is the PEOPLE!

Yesterday I attended to the BIM User Group Meeting in Dubai.

Speaker was Daniel Frawley, from Burt Hill - a Stantec Company.

Dan has a fancy title - Practice Technology Section Leader - which allowed him to make a quite technical presentation about their BIM use.

The presentation was quite interesting in general but what stroke me most was the way they used BIM to check the sun angle and how it effects the driver when they were designing a race circuit.

They purely used the features of their BIM software, no extra plug-ins or nothing custom developed.

Then I noticed there were many other things they found solutions with some workarounds within the same BIM Software. OK! These workarounds are sometimes cumbersome but still much faster than waiting the software vendor to develop it:)

As you see, it is not the software what brings success, it is the PEOPLE!
