September 8, 2016 Thomas Jefferson helped write the Declaration of Independence in 1776 when things weren’t perfect. He became President 25 years later in 1801 . . . and things still weren’t perfect. 240 years later and things are still not perfect. But in order to form a more perfect union, each generation uses the tools and resources available to build a better society. The recent evolution of tools, processes and the human spirit allows us to build things that many people think are not possible. The Information Age has resulted in dramatically advanced tools and processes that have significantly improved other industries. Information Age tools and processes are making watershed improvements in the building industry, which has a large impact on every region’s economy. A standard way to approach the transformation of a multi-trillion dollar industry would benefit all the stakeholders involved in buildings. BIMStorm Data Independence provides an open, standard way of using building information on mobile devices in a way that benefits all participating stakeholders. But you have to play to win. Share your information in a way that gets the most people to save money / make money and you win. BIMStorm is an online brainstorm using Building Information Models.
