BIM: But I’ve got 3D goggles

A construction project, with quality documentation so everything fits together properly, budget and program are achieved (or improved upon), construction runs efficiently and there are not any acrimonious legal disputes at the end between client, designers, contractor and subcontractors is an elusive beast.
3D goggles aren’t going to make much difference.


With BIM, it is easy to get bogged down in technology & detail and neglect the important strategic aspects. In this post, I draw parallels between the approach needed to successfully get down a mountain on a bicycle, and that needed for BIM.
