Dear Readers,

Welcome to the 11th Edition of Architectural Evangelist. In this volume, you will find practical views on the implementation of Building information Modeling (BIM) from seasoned industry professionals. They have shared their best practices while implementing BIM and recommended the best solutions to them. So that you learn from their mistakes and don't have to make your own. To BIM or not to BIM is not a relevant question. The question is when and how? The movement to BIM is inevitable. Same as the movement from Paper to CAD happened. Happy BIMming!

As usual, there are also announcements of special offerings from our sponsors that might be of interest to the architects, building developers or consultants. We love having members from the AEC Industry and Real Estate Fraternity join us!

Sincerely,
Architectural Evangelist Team
