Quotes from Sherif

  • "Using the analytical power of both BIM and GIS, all stakeholders can better understand the issues and impacts of their decisions."
  • "In my view, BIM will become so entangled into the profession that it will become harder for practitioners to even perceive it as unique or revolutionary."
  • "what is crucial is to first understand what it really means to adopt BIM in an architectural firm, which is not by the way just about hiring BIM software gurus, and purchasing and using the relevant BIM software."
  • "BIM should be embraced as both a tool and a process."
