Bill's article, “Conceptual Design, BIM and Interdisciplinary Collaboration” appears in the October 2016 issue of the Journal of the National Institute of Building Sciences (JNIBS).

The paper, which is based on exploratory research carried out for Bill's IDBE thesis, presents the perceptions of a limited sample of experienced BIM practitioners from the mid-Atlantic area of the United States.  The research questions include: Is collaboration a goal during concept design?  What degree of collaboration do participants perceive is achieved during concept design? And what are perceived impediments to collaboration.  The article presents the findings, raises questions and concludes with suggestions of areas for further research.  Below is a link to the article.
