Project Description

Minimizing Project Downtime with Project-Based BIM Implementation

Perkins Eastman

Perkins Eastman is a leading international design firm specializing in architecture, urban, and interior design. To remain on the cutting edge, Perkins Eastman wanted to introduce Building Information Modeling as a design solution and sustainability offering to its clients while minimizing the impacts of implementing these new technologies and workflows on production.

Microdesk assisted Perkins Eastman by assessing project workflows and developing an implementation plan that would minimize project downtime. This strategy included the creation of new internal design standards and guidelines for the modification of project workflows. To bring the architects and designers up to speed on the new tools and best practices for utilization, Microdesk developed a project–based classroom–style training program, followed by project-based shadowing, which enabled teams to continue to work on project tasks throughout the BIM adoption process.

Microdesk continues to provide project mentoring and support on an ongoing basis to ensure continued success.
