Architects use mining analogy to spruik BIM Data Modelling as Regulators, Stakeholder, Battlers & Punters turn away from BIM model Renderings without Data and proofs...

In Reality....
Who really cares about Material Modelling the whole (big picture) Melbourne city, when Victorian Timber shortages will add an extra $5000 to the average house build?
Building material costs sets to skyrocket

Scarborough beach 400m Twin towers development plan rejected
"A statement from the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority said the application, put forward by Chinese-owned developer 3 Oceans, had been refused planning approval because it was a significant overdevelopment of the site." Quote
Developers and Architects fail to alleviate Traffic concerns which were highlighted in the lead up to the decision.

#OlympicStadiums
Petition to NSW Government
"We, the undersigned, respectfully call on the Premier of NSW, Gladys Berejiklian, and the NSW Cabinet, to reconsider their decision to knock down two perfectly fine sports stadiums - the Olympic Stadium and Sydney Football Stadium - at a staggering cost of $2Billion, to replace them with new ones, at a time when there is ZERO public demand to replace either.
We are tired of taxpayer dollars being lavished on building facilities for Sports Big Business, while community sport withers on the vine for lack of facilities and resources." Quote

"Oh Woe is me" Architects blame everyone else but themselves for marginalisation of their profession in AEC Projects

Quote "Of course, just because a building has been designed by an architect doesn't necessarily mean it's better. But even where architects are involved, their role is increasingly subservient to other consultants (re. Structural, HVAC, Mechanical,Geotechnical, Value ENGINEERING), project managers, planning consultants, quantity surveyors and marketing advisors."

"Designed by Architects for Architects once the catch phrase for BIM Software, is no longer because they forgot about, Data, Proofs & everyone else"
Will Architects desert Architectural BIM only rendering software Like Archicad & VWs Architect for other complete packages?

Perth Architectural Firm JCY has been placed into Liquidation reasons cited
...Perths slow down on large projects
...Pricing pressures and costs
...Huge Losses on the Perth Children's Hospital

Spruiking the benefits of BIM & Revit on it's technology page and claiming
":JCY use a variety of software in preparing our design solutions, including Google SketchUp, 3D Studio Max and Adobe Creative Suite, in addition to crafted hand-drawn investigation. 3D visualisation is taken further on each design, utilising our in-house 3d Artist whose role is to assist the design process, rather than the output of marketing imagery?"
Are Architects really capable of delivering Optimised Solutions, Costs, Data and Proofs?

When I worked as a mining engineer, technology was always leapfrogging the way we did our work and we just had to keep up..."Quote Leigh Clifford Qantas Chairman

WA Building Commission is expected to order the removal of highly flammable PE Cladding From Buildings as a result of statewide audits.
The state-wide audit assessed 460 multi-storey buildings in WA with cladding.
Half could have highly flammable cladding and are tagged for Fire Engineer Inspections.

"If we come across a scenario where that cladding has been recommended in more recent years then certainly we will be looking at whether or not that person needs to be held accountable"......
Architects, Builders,Certifiers and owners could face penalties
"Building owners are being sort of confronted with the choice of either get a fire assessment done or your insurance premiums will be hiked quite a bit," Quote

Where Algorithmic rendered panel details were once viewed as the future direction of Architectural BIM Software, using the wrong Engineered Materials and their repairs Falls on the battlers and punters shoulders if the buildings are strata titled and owned jointly.
Not to forget your Investment will be named , shamed and devalued.
