If you’ve been following along with Patrick, you know his Effort Curve presentation, which came to be known as the “MacLeamy Curve.” But, have you heard of his BIM BAM BOOM talk? In today’s episode, Patrick shares his concept of “BIM BAM BOOM” to highlight the true value of design. He breaks down the total cost of a building – design, construction, and operations – and explains how early effort and commitment actually reduces the total cost of the building.

Patrick shares his lessons for listeners to take away from this episode:

  • Construction savings pay for design,
  • Operation savings pay for construction,
  • Architects are best positioned to create real future value for owners through thoughtful design, open BIM tools, and working with the contractor as a partner
