ABOUT MAKERS OF THE ENVIRONMENT: Makers of the Environment is a book written around scenarios that highlight what BIG-BIM can do today. The scenarios are fictional projections, not case studies. The scenes show readers some of the opportunities that come into focus as they embrace BIG-BIM.

Using real-world, albeit fictional scenarios, Makers makes the case that BIG-BIM is here and in use today. Farming uses BIG-BIM to manage no-till farms to be more sustainable and efficient. Healthcare has become a connected system to respond to tight budgets and societal needs. Disaster preparedness and recovery are dependent on BIG-BIM from start to finish. The internet thrives on BIG-BIM apps and systems. As productivity and inefficiency decline, how can the building industry not do the same?

Makers is both a print book and a dedicated website. It offers readers links to the wisdom of others to improve understanding. The site is free to all and links to external information via Web-enabled devices, using tags. The tags let one embed information links into a printed book. Using the tags, readers can to jump to more detailed and technical discussions about topics included in the book. The tags use the Microsoft Tag format. They establish direct links to more information. Think of them as a glossary on steroids.
