tCn – The Construction Network – launches

Last month, Birmingham-based architect Rob Annable of Axis Design spoke at Ecobuild on BIM and social media (see post).

2D to 3D: still a work in progress

Estimates regarding the adoption of building information modelling (BIM) vary depending on who you talk to, where they are based, and what kind of role they have.
