The architects at Ignarri Lummis attend weekly lunch and learns on several topics, including training in technology and software such as, BIM. As a firm, we understand the importance of being both up to date and ahead of the curve, so that we can continue to provide our clients with the highest quality and efficiency in design.  BIM is a 3D model-based process that supports architects, engineers, and contractors throughout the design process and leverages them with better tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure. This software allows us to gain more insight earlier in the process to optimize our designs our clients’ requirements and delivering them with the highest quality and efficiency.  The benefits of BIM are a more fluid design process, integrated visualization and analysis tools, the ability to extend BIM workflows with computational design, and multidiscipline collaboration.
