Ideate is pleased to share the work of BIM advocate (and friend of Ideate), Laura Kay Smith. She has recently completed the e-book Becoming a BIM Advocate: Promoting & Implementing BIM in Your Office.
If you have been running up against walls in getting your firm transitioned into full BIM integration, or getting BIM implementation off the ground at all, this book will provide solid strategies and specific tips to achieve this goal. Also, going through this process will help you position yourself as a valuable BIM resource at your firm.
Ideate has been a big supporter of Laura's role as a BIM advocate. She has spoken at Ideate sponsored Revit User Groups, worked with Ideate Software to publish a Study In Success focusing on Kasian's use of Ideate BIMLink, and, we just generally enjoy her presence in the BIM community.
In Laura's role as BIM Manager at Kasian Architecture Interior Design and Planning, LTD., she has been a leading contributor to Kasian's transformation to a fully integrated BIM focused firm. However, it hasn't been an easy road. Laura's valuable experience overcoming considerable challenges in BIM integration and her confident yet approachable tone make her book an interesting, actionable and quick read.
