General Note: Over the past decade, I’ve been hired by almost every type of actor in the Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) environment to help introduce advanced-technology workflows into their projects. This is the last in a series of four posts that summarizes those BIM, VDC, & parametric contributions at a high level.
One of the most powerful collaborations I enjoy is working directly with developers — usually to empower their use of VDC technologies downstream and after requiring a BIM workflow from designers.
Each developer brings different requirements to their design team, but uniformly expresses interest in doing business quicker, better, faster and smarter. My name has been referred to them as someone excited to help all AEC stakeholders use new technologies to manage risk in the portfolio of buildings they plan to construct.
Below is the topics common to those consulting service topics (usually services further rendered to an Owner’s Rep). This list is compiled in one place for the first time. It is fascinating to see the themes of risk management in each topic, but has been even more fascinating to contrast these topics with against those that architects tend to require.
