Building Information Modeling or BIM is the hottest topic in the construction industry and for good reason. Architects use BIM tools and process to deliver better designs; engineers use BIM to ensure designs meet codes and performance benchmarks; general contractors are using BIM to build projects first on the computer before ever winning the job; and, owners are leveraging the “digital double” to manage and maintain their facilities with more predictability and efficiency.

Clearly, BIM is changing the way construction professionals perform their individual tasks and more importantly, how we collaborate, share and exchange information. BIM is directly influencing building designs, functions and the ways in which buildings are built. Dozens of books, thousands of articles and perhaps millions of “tweets” have been written about BIM in just the past couple years. Attend a construction event (an actual conference or a virtual “webinar”) and you hear architects and GCs describing how BIM is changing the way they design and manage construction projects. And yet, in this barrage of BIM, little has been written about the impact on the subcontractor or fabricator.
