The Future of BIM Adoption in the AEC Industry

Like many industries, architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) has evolved over the years to keep pace with technological advances. In the last several years, people working in AEC have gradually let go of working with computer aided design (CAD) and embraced everything that building information modeling (BIM) offers. BIM already allows AEC workers to design, build, and construct a large array of projects. However, the future of building is even more exciting, as BIM will enable the use of generative design. Algorithms in BIM software enable project planners to create designs based on specific constraints of the projects such as…
