BIM (Building Information Modeling) Panel Discussion

Moderated by Kevin Lewis, PE LEED AP BD+C


Topic of Discussion

Join us at the March ASHRAE meeting for an informative and lively discussion on Building Information Modeling (BIM). We will host a panel of BIM users representing multiple constituencies in our industry. Panel members will discuss how they’re using BIM, what works and what doesn’t, BIM levels and agreements, and the future of modeling in the construction industry. Audience participation will be encouraged so come prepared with questions.
