Design, BIM, Build: Residential Revit with Alex Gore

In this episode of BIM After Dark Live I will be joined by Alex Gore of F9 Productions (and the “Inside the Firm” Podcast) to talk about how BIM is integral in his residential design build company.

From templates, to common details, to how being a design build company influences his approach to modeling in Revit, Alex will present his companies approach to BIM at a scale not always talked about: single family residential.

So sit back, relax, and let’s geek out!
