Mistakes = learning


The B1M

Published on Sep 2, 2015

Everyone makes mistakes. But very few people own up to them in construction. It’s because we’re scared of feeling inadequate or losing reputation. To collaborate effectively in a building information modelling (BIM) environment, we need to share our mistakes to ensure that others can learn from them. Here, Su Butcher explores our fear of making mistakes …and how that may lead to even bigger ones.

“When implementing BIM, we’ll be working more closely with other professionals and we may want to avoid showing up any lack of knowledge that we have” explains Su. “But the thing is if we really want to implement collaborative working, we actually have to measure our successes; which means admitting to our mistakes and owning up to them”.
