The AIA Technology in Architectural Practice Knowledge Community (TAP) serves as a resource for AIA members, the profession, and the public in the deployment of computer technology in the practice of architecture. TAP leaders monitor the development of computer technology and its impact on architecture practice and the entire building life cycle, including design, construction, facility management, and retirement or reuse.

This stood out by how it leveraged BIM not just in design but in the shop drawing process and in the fabrication and installation they achieved things in a time that would have been unimaginable otherwise. BIM assisted in fabrication, documentation, and implementation. The submitter had a willingness to share their digital files to better improve the project. Because technology was able to communicate this model, they were able to achieve what they have. They communicated effectively. It gets back to this team was cohesive. They had a shared server for the team all the way through design and construction. Their process delivery was exceptional. #CaseStudies #2014BIMAwardProgram
