Building information modeling (BIM) and other digital technologies provide efficiency and accuracy in the construction industry.
To apply BIM effectively, teams are required to form a highly collaborative culture to maximize the benefits. The technology allows everyone to access the same data in real-time, to test approaches and catch errors earlier.
ESD Digital Practice Leader Samir Abdelmawla will explore a future of construction transformed by technology during the panel discussion “Harnessing the Power of BIM & Digital Construction” on Jan. 26 from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. CT. The panel is part of Midwest Build Week Online, the largest virtual/online event covering the latest projects and opportunities for the construction industry in Chicago and the Midwest.
