BIM Server Bridges Time Zones for Global Teams Goal: Preserving the Mithoff Hotel

Date: Saturday, August 27, 2011

A historic hotel becomes the focal point for a revolutionary approach to global design. Can you comment on this Graphisoft BIM Server™ workflow? The future for the architecture industry is collaboration and interoperability. I definitely want to see this project spawn thousands like it. We can do work like across 18 time zones. We’ve proven that teamwork made possible via the BIM Server™  can help us be very efficient. This is just the tip of the iceberg, considering that we accomplished a fairly substantial amount of work in a limited amount of time – roughly 150 hours over 8 weeks – all on a volunteer basis.  We were able to access a rich diversity of participants, with multiple skill levels, different nationalities, and different sized firms. While there were a good number of participants in the US, across four time zones. I learned about different countries I have to admit, I didn’t even know existed. Direct article link here
