BIM CONSULTING AND TRAINING
For a design-focused firm, adoption of Building Information Modeling workflows is a careful, multi-stage process. This is why a one-size fits-all approach to BIM training and BIM practices rarely meets success with the firms that try them. They tell us, "We sent some staff to <training> offices. They learned to make a generic model for three days. But now we have project-specific questions and they offer no support."
Gridley offers a useful alternative to canned lectures and unrelated training. We discuss the project that BIM workflows are to be implimented, and tailor custom, in-office training to that project. This is considered the kick-off to get a team started. Then, we supplement that training with weeks of return-trips to the project team, to help the team apply those foundational lessons to the unique problems each project faces. Sometimes advanced training is necessary, and other times desk-side support empowers pro-active teams to forge ahead.
