Why Virtual Design Software is Leaving a Lasting Impact on the Design Workforce

 

MarketScale regular, Paul Doherty, and Shawn Phillips, Director of Virtual Design and Construction met up at the Chicago Build Expo to discuss how as BIM evolves the industry will need to be retrained to meet those new demands.

 

Highlights of the conversation:

  1. There is a lot of talk in the industry about delivering BIM, what am I actually giving over to an owner at the end of the project?
  2. “What is interesting is the conversations within AIA that are saying that medium sized firms could go away”
  3. “It doesn’t come down to the actual production, but the deliverable and a part of that is trying to get buy in from stakeholders”
  4. “What we are seeing here not just in the states but globally are that subcontractors are really taking a hold of how work gets done”
  5. “Your role is not just being responsible for production but VDC managers are becoming educators”
  6. “I was a part of the team that designed what would become revit, we didn’t design it for designers. It was designed for a professional that we didn’t even know yet”
  7. “Do you always have a BIM execution on projects or do you ever take it as the project unfolds?”
  8. “How will BIM 2.0 change to fit with a more cloud based work flow that we have seen evolve over the past two decades?”
  9. “I think the Internet-of-Things has a long way to go but obviously it’s still in its infancy”
