Collapse Expand


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.
