Collaboration & BIM

  • Collaboration & Building Information Modeling (BIM) | How do we make sure we’re all working on the most up to date information and maintaining a single source of truth? With BIM at the core of the project delivery, the need for any time, anywhere, collaboration, data continuity comes into play.We will hear from Salla Palos, Director of Transformation Services of Microsoft; Angus MacGregor, Principal of Olson Kundig; Robert Otani, Principal of Thornton Tomasetti’s CORE Studio; and Josh Rodgers, Virtual Design Construction Manager of Mortenson Construction.
