While most books related to BIM are focused on large-scale architectural projects, this is the only book focused on BIM strategies for modest-scaled architectural projects that are sustainably designed. Specific in its examples and methods, the book serves as practical guide for architects and is intended to be a desktop companion. Other books, other than software guides, tend to treat BIM or sustainable practices separately in a high-level discussion.
