Robert Scoble may be known to you as the PodTech, ex-Microsoft, Geek Blogger & Videoblogger but this show ventures into the world of Architecture, Construction, Green materials and Building Information Modelling with Toby Long of “CleverHomes”.
It’s a discussion about the concept of BIM for design, manufacture and estimation but the only design software seen in action, briefly, is SketchUp during an office walk-about. While most the info will not be new to CAD/BIM savvy readers of this blog it’s great that this sort of info is reaching other industries and communities. It will be interesting to see what Robert’s usual, I’m guessing this, mainly IT/Tech based audience think of BIM.
Some of the comments on integration of BIM and Estimation link into a presentation I attended earlier this week. More about that in a future post.

This is a bit different today. It's not about Web 2.0, or startups, or computer science. Instead we take a look inside the industry of home building with CleverHomes Founder Toby Long. Toby is an architect, but one that is trying to find new, more sustainable ways to build homes. If you thought you knew how homes should be built you might want to listen in here.
UPDATE 17–02–2007: I was curious what BIM applications CleverHomes use so emailed them. The response was: “Vectorworks 12.5 is our only BIM (building information management) software”
