Our first episode of 2021 is episode Nine and has been curated by our BILT Academy correspondent David. This month’s podcast is a BIM Technology podcast, and in it, David interviews two industry experts in the field of technology innovation.

A quick soundbite of what is ahead in this episode

In this month’s episode, we go behind the scenes of two successful internationally implemented BIM technologies and meet the founders and driving forces of BIM technology in the building industry. We meet 2 building industry experts that made the giant leap from a traditional oriented building industry to the future world of shaping our built environment. 

We’ll be going over things like, what motivated them by utilizing their proficiency to become technology innovators? What drove them to develop technology? What issues in traditional skills did they formerly encounter and jumped on to fix them? And what obstacles do they still face and foresee and how can we overcome them as end-users of these technologies? 

2 compelling stories of 2 inspiring building industry experts and technologists.
