Want to see what the future of BIM looks like? Head to Informed Infrastructure to read all about the historic Grand Paris Express (GPE) project, a monumental undertaking that will effectively double the size of the Paris metro system, easing travel and connecting vital parts of the city.
According to the article, “Although it’s a historic project by any measure, it’s also one of the first infrastructure projects of this scale to use Building Information Modeling (BIM) from start to finish.
