How has BIM impacted building design and what’s coming next?

BIM is often described as a technology, automation, or a particular piece of software. However, it is actually a process that produces a building information model amongst other things. Dr Kristopher Dane, vice president and director of digital design at Thornton Tomasetti explores this further.
Structural engineering, allplan,

ALLPLAN’s openBIM approach for structural engineering

BIM for structural engineering has typically been hampered by various issues. The lack of an integrated yet flexible design solution for the entire project team leads to inefficient working methods and manual errors. Combined with the trend towards larger projects, greater detail and freeform shapes, it is clear that structural engineering workflows need to adapt to meet all these requirements.
