NextGen Standard of Care

OMG Finith has done it again! His first book BIG BIM–little bim was a seminal book for the facilities industry. This time in a 400-page book with 29 case studies and hands-on exercises and tools he has combined the next book I would have written, along with documenting what is in the incredible mind of Kimon Onuma, along with about every other great thinker in the industry. For those of you who may be thinking that we have milked all we can out of BIM, this book is a must read and will set you straight in understanding that we have not even scratched the surface. For those of you still trying to figure out what BIM is and think it is a piece of software or just an expansion on CAD if you don’t read this book you will have missed an enormous opportunity. This book truly documents what the standard of care will become in the facilities industry over the next decade. Thank you Finith for all your efforts in the transformation of the facilities industry.
