BIM and VDC can add significant value to a construction project, but contractors need to also address the realities of BIM challenges today. John will help to facilitate a much-needed open dialogue during Technology Day.

Carol Stream, Ill. — July 14, 2015 —VDC (virtual design and construction) and BIM (building information modeling) are often shown in a positive light. While many construction companies focus on the benefits, rather than the untold tales of challenges, there is a need to learn from BIM struggles, in order to continually improve on future projects.
This why Constructech is pleased to announce John Grady, president of Epic BIM, will speak at this year’s Technology Day conference on August 27 at Maggiano’s Little Italy in Schaumburg, Ill., to converse on the realities of BIM today and what is in store for the future.
“The biggest challenge that we have as an industry is it has been evolving so fast. We sold ‘Hollywood BIM‘ and not what the reality of the deliverables are (to the industry),” explains Grady. “One of the things that we really need to do is have these open, honest, and frank conversations.”
Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech, says, “BIM and VDC can add significant value to a construction project, but contractors need to also address the realities of BIM challenges today. John will help to facilitate a much-needed open dialogue during Technology Day.”
Grady understands the impact BIM can have in the construction industry. Register to hear his thoughts on how companies can implement BIM successfully as part of their own collaboration process.
