Building Information Modelling (BIM) has changed the way many practicing structural engineers deliver their design for the built community. Starting out only as a 3D tool for visualization, BIM now allows much higher levels of collaboration and can produce significant savings in time, materials, and other economic resources. Since its adoption by the design community in the United States in the late 2000's, BIM has become the standard way of doing business in the U.S. and in many other
more » ... many other countries. However, learning how to truly leverage BIM for significant benefits to schedule, budget, and constructability in steel construction is still something very few structural design firms embrace and implement. Learn the latest on these exciting developments and help move the steel industry forward throughout the world.
