Good evening and..
Welcome to the Cult of #BIM.
Our god is in the Cloud
We have legions of Servers
We have our own Language..IFC, LOD, 1192, B555, BEP et al
Our Mark is the Wedge, forever may it be hallowed, branded on our palms
Our Holy Writ is BS1192, PAS1192/2, PAS1192/3, BS1192/4
We have our Apostles…the blessed Mark, David, and Mervyn – forever may they be venerated
Our Acolytes and helpers are everywhere..they are the #BIMcrews, the #BIM4s, the #BIMHubs, #TheB1M
Collaboration is our Shield of righteousness
Interoperability our Staff of comfort, let us always be Open
COBie/IFC is our Watchword…praise be to the Nick and the Smart Builders
WE are passionate, fervent
WE are enthusiastic
WE are committed to the #BIMcause
WE are the MAKERS…we are the Digital Engineers –
WE conceive, create, design, make and construct
WE WILL transform our industry for a better day for all
Respected, efficient lean and profitable, oozing quality and creating an outstanding environment.
Let us go forth in the Name of the #BIM and multiply!
PS…it has often struck me the similarities between the BIM movement and a cult – we have all the hallmarks, and we need the passion and fervour, lets remember to keep the borders and boundaries open…we welcome everyone!!
