Here is a link to an article that hits close to home - Wisconsin and State projects.
The article discusses about how the State of Wisconsin is looking at requiring BIM for it's projects... In my opinion, the article could have been written well over a year ago because BIM is not new anymore. As far as the State of Wisconsin, it's great to hear that their getting educated and will start implementing BIM requirements.
As you know, we've been using Revit as our BIM authoring tool for a quite a few years now, so when I hear excuses on how firms can't move forward with technology, it boggles my mind... and expecting staff to be proficient and profitable with a software they've never used is ludicrous. Kudos to those that have embraced the technology and moved forward.
