January OWLS Topic:
I Do Small Projects, So There is No Reason Why I Should Use BIM
If you have ever said these words you should plan to join us and see first hand how BIM benefits architects on projects of all sizes. You will learn how BIM has helped a sole practitioner (who is one of your own AIA NC peers) improve their business. We will discuss how BIM is helping them better communicate with their clients in addition to streamlining their construction documentation process. We will show examples of real projects and how technology impacted the bottom line. This conversation is intended to address common fears and concerns of transitioning to BIM through shared experiences.

For more than 13 years Josh Bone has been implementing, training, and presenting construction technology solutions to AEC&O professionals. During that time he has had the opportunity to work with some of the top technology leaders in the industry. This experience has helped him define best practices and methodologies for integrating BIM and mobile applications into everyday workflows. Starting with designers, then moving into trade coordination, and finally working with teams to producing schedules (4D) and quantities (5D) generated from the model Josh has delved deep into the BIM process.
Josh Bone is the East Region Sales Director for Graphisoft. Graphisoft is known as one of the leading developers of software for architects, builders and operators.
Founder Amy Conner-Murphy, began ACM Design over a decade ago after relocating to Asheville with her family.
Architecture had always provided inspiration for Amy, but focus on work that was more personal in nature held even greater meaning. After many years of nurturing the idea of designing homes that created that sense of place and belonging that she longed for herself, Amy made the move to do just that.
Drawing from her background with notable corporate and commercial architecture firms in Charlotte, NC and Dallas, TX, she began this small architectural studio with a challenging first project — to design a comfortable home with a limited budget for her own growing family. In addition to design, she was on site every day managing the construction, and on occasion wielding her own hammer.
Since those early days, Amy has assembled a team of like-minded professionals, committed to excellence in design, quality, integrity, service and the ideal of — creating home.
When not designing homes, Amy enjoys family time with husband, Steve and daughters, Rebecca and Julia. She nurtures her creative side by gardening, hiking, painting and soul collage. Amy serves as Treasurer of AIA Asheville, as well as on the Education Committees of AIA North Carolina and Asheville Homebuilders Association.
