It is the mission of the Piedmont Contractors Resource Center (PCRC) to provide and align members with resources and leads geared toward enhancing their skills to grow and operate a construction-related business. It is because of this mission, we are continuously seeking advanced training and development for our membership. Therefore, when we were made aware that Architect for Life had a "Next Generation Contractor" Seminar, we inquired of its objectives, content and delivery process. Upon realizing that the focus was to educate, through example, the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) as a tool to 1) better understand the intended building systems, 2) better understand the Integrated Design Process, and 3) place the contractor in "value add" position with a potential Owner offering sustainable and cost-saving options through the study and use of data and analysis captured from the BIM electronic files, we then contracted with Architect for Life to deliver a one-day, high-impact BIM BOOTCAMP. We truly got our money's worth. The team from Architect for Life captured each hour with insightful information, practical and easy usage ideas, and hands on examples that allowed attendees to leave with enriched knowledge that they could use immediately. An example of extracting information for take offs was also a highlight of the session, along with much more. If one were looking to bring a contracting organization to the next level of technology with sustainability, then I would highly recommend bringing in theArchitect for Life team to help prepare your group as a "Next Generation Contractor".
