Episode Fifteen – BIM Execution Plan

On Thursday, July 29th, 2021 Episode Fifteen of the BILT Academy Podcast went live.

For episode fifteen we invited Hugo Taillandier, fellow Podcaster/ host of Today’s Architecture Podcast and student at Napiers University in Edinburgh to hop on board as guest correspondent to this month’s topic. 

In this month’s episode, Hugo decided to venture into the topic of BIM Execution Planning, as he had not yet been really exposed to that topic and got curious in learning more about how project protocol is set up and executed accordingly. In order to get accessible and in-depth knowledge on this subject, He reached out to the eminent authority on BIM Execution Planning: Dr. Marzia Bolpagni.
