Editorial Reviews

Review

BIG BIM little bim is, the most accurate description of BIM at this point in time. It breaks down Building Information Modeling into "bim" (lowercase) as software tools and "BIM" (uppercase) as integrated design and exchange of project data. You cannot achieve BIM with bim alone.--Nigel Davies, Director Evolve Consultancy

This book will help you connect the dots between planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance and will show you the difference between thinking of electronic design - i.e. little bim - and thinking of smart buildings and smart infrastructure generally. If you don't own it buy it--.James Salmon, Collaborative Construction Resources

This book hits a home run for all practitioners of BIM. It is relevant to both the neophyte just making the BIM decision as well as the mature BIM organization looking for what is next.--Dana K. Smith, FAIA

Can't say what I expected when I bought this book. It's all over the map and I'm expecting PBS to pick this guy up as an architectural self-help guru.

I have never seen so many numbers thrown around as the "4Site" system that is best used with the 80/20 principle that then moves on to the Power of Sixteen Concept that can then be better handled with the 400% Rule (page 136). I am seriously paraphrasing here, but it can be daunting trying to keep with the threads.

Having cleared my system of that I will say that there are a number of things that can be taken away from this book (failing fast is my favorite). It is on the extreme end of the "architecture-is-a-business" end of things, but as is so often pointed out in this book, it is what is so often left out of an architects' equation. And an omission that, if not tended to, will push architects further to the fringe of the construction industry.

Mr. Jernigan, I have no doubt, knows what he is talking about--it's just such a difficult read.

Professionals in the Design Field will love this book! The organization/heirarchy of discussion points add to the features in this book. In addition, there are many diagrams and much theory to support all that he has written for design and along with the "Toyota Theory" he has created a well-rounded book for us all to follow and to keep as a reference in our libraries.

when looking for books about BIM i didn't realize how was important to know more than just Revit or ArchiCAD. i googled around some times but here i found this book, well reviewed, and got it for my kindle.
i loved to see many new concepts and information than i got before only using the softwares.
else to say?
the importance between the concepts and the practices, between being BIM rather than doing CAD with BIM head.
more important: less then 25$ for the kindle edition of this book.
