A growing trend in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Owner-Operated (AECO) industry are classification codes, which are becoming a core feature and reference point in BIM, or Building Information Modeling. Why? Their proven benefits, which range from fewer errors to improved cost predictability. That’s why classification codes are becoming necessary for BIM, especially with the […]

For industry outsiders, engineers and surveyors can seem like they’re the same profession. That’s not the case, of course — they’re two separate professions, with specific skill sets and responsibilities.
