Excerpt: As owners expand their BIM involvement, there is a growing need for them to understand how best to enable their project teams to provide them with he greatest BIM value. In other words, what makes a good "BIM owner"? Several experienced AEC firms offer perspectives on that question.
Excerpt: Owners who adopt BIM for facilities management are viewing numerous potential benefits, but they face a range of cultural and technological challenges along the way. In order to achieve integration, are pursuing a variety of these strategies.
How many times have you walked into a toilet room; where the hand-washing area (sink) is on one side of the entrance door and the hand-drying area (paper towels\hand dryer) is on the other side of the door?
Or, while standing at the hand-washing area (sink) you find the hand-drying area (paper towels\hand dryer) is located behind you mounted on the wall?
The distance that separates the hand-washing area and from the hand-drying area; creates a major liability (risk) of creating a slippery floor for users of this toilet room design.
The water dripping off of visitors' hands; creates a slippery floor in the walking and exit paths of the toilet room.
A wet floor, more easily collects dirt from visitors shoes and potentially becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and mold.

Bradley developed a patented, innovative manufacturing processes to create "molded shapes" from engineered stone (natural quartz and granite) to accent linear design or complement the parabolic curves, arcs and elliptical features within today's design interiors.
The value of technical college classes is largely dependent on the instructor's background implementing the software on "live projects". Many times the night instructors; that work in design + construction firms during the day, will teach the night classes.
Excerpt: Every day, we get calls from architects and engineers asking for help in deciding what washfountain to use for their project. My first question to them is always, “Where is the product going to be used, and what is the application?” Very often they haven’t really thought about the application. Factors like appearance, space available, ADA compliance, and water conservation are given more consideration than how the fixture will be used. While these other factors are important, the product specified has to consider the user.
The Autodesk 360 rendering dashboard, features several image editing and 'Re-render' tools; to modify the initial rendered image\view.
Designers are always seeking better and faster visual tools; to confirm their clients' approval of their proposed design options.
Revit Cloud-based rendering 'levels the playing field' for sole-proprietorships, smaller staffed studios & design firms. They can create more design options, more quickly for their clients' approval; while greatly minimizing their time + labor costs.
