Technology in Architectural Practice

The Future of Specifications

01-17-2013 11:26

Project contract documents contain drawings and specifications. Yet the active industry discussion is about BIM (drawings) and almost no discussion about specifications. Surely there have been technology advances for specification authoring and linking to BIMs. Well-coordinated drawings and specifications reduce project risks. Is it possible to author specifications in parallel with design activities, providing critical data to designers to make well-informed decisions? This presentation is for all project participants responsible for authoring and coordinating project specifications.

This presentation is a part of the ongoing AIA Technology in Architectural Practice webinar series.
