    Digital disruption is accelerating in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry faster than most firms can react. BIM (Building Information Modeling) is no longer the single force driving change; the complete digitization of your firm is. Learn how, as a mid-size architecture firm, Turner Fleischer Architects stopped our BIM Transformation Committee and started again with nine full-time staff, led by two partners, exclusively dedicated to using innovation in project workflows. Taking a deep dive and mapping the goals and objectives of this new Digital Practice Department showed its full permeation in all aspects of operations, and the radiating impact on the studio. A momentum and mindset change followed, the spark of which highlights a different approach to technology management that we will share with you.
