Have you wondered what it would (literally) look like if BIM and specification content were able to operate in sync, within an open ecosystem that allows for data interoperability? Join BIMsmith and Deltek for a free webinar on Thursday, October 3rd as the two companies discuss their journey over the last year tackling that exact problem.
Why Specs and BIM?
The building professional's experience with BIM (Building Information Modeling) and construction specifications (specs) have long been separate interactions.
Specifications, of course, date back significantly further than BIM. One could argue that construction specifications have been around ever since the first time someone instructed someone else to build something for them (Noah's ark, for example).
Therefore, since BIM emerged as the eminent building design workflow for architects, engineers, contractors, and owners, it has more or less operated in a parallel universe from specifications. Building professionals design using BIM, with their preferred BIM tools and resources, then step out of the "BIM world" in order to coordinate the specifications for their projects.
It's a drastic oversimplification, but the situation is one that nonetheless has existed since the birth of BIM several decades ago.
That's why the BIM experts at BIMsmith teamed up with the specification experts at Deltek to solve a problem that costs our industry untold quantities of time, money, and efficiency.
Join us on October 3rd at 11:00am Eastern for a free webinar discussing how this problem is being solved by integrations between BIMsmith, MasterSpec, e-Specs, and more.
