Advanced Project Delivery Presentation
Today our profession faces a golden and historic opportunity: a new age of collaboration with tools and systems at our disposal that finally will allow our product – our deliverables – to live up to those of the master designers and builders that came before us. Thanks to advances in both computer hardware and software, we can finally produce a deliverable that truly reflects the collaboration that has always been such an important part of the design and construction process. The synthesis of ideas across the entire project team can reside – as it once did in the master builder’s head – in one virtual, seamless and borderless model. Now, nothing needs to be left to interpretation and we can all see 100% of what is in the mind of all the collaborators. The fulfillment of this dream can only happen, however, when the model becomes the deliverable.
