The BIM Sandbox Panel Discussion

This upcoming panel discussion on BIM collaboration is entitled "The BIM Sandbox: Successes and Challenges of Sharing BIM".  We are excited about this topic, as BIM advocates we strive to increase collaboration and model sharing which opens up many opportunities as well as challenges.  This panel discussion will have representation from various disciplines to shine light on how diverse the use and collaboration of BIM is, providing different perspectives and experiences.  This panel will respond to questions from the tBIMc community about BIM collaboration.  We will address key benefits of collaborative BIM and hear about the hurdles encountered in the process and possible solutions that will contribute toward delivering a successful project.  The diverse panel will give insight and perspective into how we all play apart in sharing the BIM.
