We are very excited to announce that a white paper titled "An introduction to the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) workflow for Vectorworks BIM users" has been published.
Many architects and architectural designers, particularly those with governmental or institutional clients, are being asked to “deliver BIM”. This directive can lead to a good deal of anxiety, and also some confusion, because more often than not, neither the client nor the practitioner understands what is being sought with this request. Is “BIM” a file format, a 3D model, or a way of doing business? What are the legal and contractual implications of “doing BIM”? And, most importantly, how can the practitioner properly respond to (and satisfy) the client who wants a BIM delivery?
This paper, authored by Nemetschek North America's Vice-President of Integrated Practice Robert Anderson, is intended to answer those questions, as well as introduce BIM users to an additional opportunity to design, build, and operate as efficiently as possible: the concept of IPD.
