My favorite time of the year...when the months have 'R's'
because this means oyster season!
Born and raised, at least for the first seven years of my life, on the gulf coast, I was weaned on the fine culinary delights that were born in the ocean. Chief among these for me are raw oysters.
No Tabasco, cocktail sauce, lemon, crackers, just pure, delectable, salty mouthfuls of Heaven.
Pat Conroy pretty much nails it here with the exception of the geographical difference:
To describe our growing up in the lowcountry of South Carolina, I would have to take you to the marsh on a spring day, flush the great blue heron from its silent occupation, scatter marsh hens as we sink to our knees in mud, open you an oyster with a pocketknife and feed it to you from the shell and say, "There. That taste. That's the taste of my childhood." ~ The Prince of Tides

The Professional Services Perspective: The slow transformation of Building Information Modeling
Here’s my narrative approach to the slow transformation and integration of BIM software and tools:
“I’ve been doing this for 30 years and never needed BIM to visualize exterior cladding transitions or conflicts.”
“I’m not sure why they want a BIM model. You can quote it, but I think it is going away.”
“They want a REVIT model for record, but it can be done after the shop drawings. Do the shops in AutoCAD first.”
“This REVIT and BIM thing is getting some traction, so we are going to have to release you on the BIM work, but it seems like a waste of the owner’s
“Hey, the architect and GC want a coordinated model to provide to the owner, so I need you guys to provide a BIM model, and weekly or bi-weekly BIM coordination
“This project is actually being executed in REVIT and all of the subs are required to use REVIT for their elevations, plans and sections. Make sure you’ve designed
a deliverable that incorporates this, and review the architect’s expected LOD and qualify anything you think is not necessary.”
“I think we are going to have to use REVIT and RHINO at the same time on this project to model the crazy geometry. Make sure to coordinate teams and integrate both in developing your details.”
