My BIM experience

by Dr. Regina Ruschel, Senior Researcher and Collaborating Professor at the Graduate Program in Architecture, Technology and the City at the University of Campinas

I was a pioneer and led two major digital transformation processes in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction in the Brazilian academy.

This effort was first locally at my university and recently nationwide.
