An Introduction to the IPD Workflow for Vectorworks BIM Users
Many architects and architectural designers, particularly those with governmental or institutional clients, are being asked by their clients to “deliver BIM”. This can be a directive leading to a good deal of anxiety and not a small amount of confusion, because more often than not, neither the client nor the practitioner understands what is being sought with this request. Is “BIM” a file format, a 3D model, or a way of doing business? What are the legal and contractual implications of “doing BIM”? And, most importantly, how can the practitioner properly respond to (and satisfy) the client who wants a BIM delivery?
This paper is intended to answer those questions and introduce to users who are “thinking BIM” yet another three-letter-acronym, IPD, which stands for “Integrated Project Delivery”.
