One thought on “About JOHNEYNON.

  1. Hi John…we are also trying to help people on their BIM journey by making BIM for FM a reality. We work with the scandinavian IWMS MainManager, a true BIM FM tool that enables users to manage their building and contained assets via an interactive 3D model, linking asset information to FM functionality. It really is very clever and way ahead of anything else currently on offer. Our problem is getting the messaage out!
