Collaborative Case Study Survey

With a goal of publishing a regional resource guide on BIM which includes the impact on and support of more collaborative and integrated project delivery systems, the Joint Committee commenced a survey to locate local projects to be included in this case study. We feel that showing real-world examples of projects is the best way to facilitate the educational process. We ask the industry to please complete this brief Collaborative Case Study Survey with as much information as possible on projects that you feel should be included. Please make sure to include contact information so that we could gather the necessary information for this resource guide. If you have questions or wish to discuss this topic please contact the Joint Committee.
