Known as the Father of BIM , Jonathan Ingram designed and wrote the first Building Information Modelling systems. He has been honoured with the 2016 Prince Philip Gold Medal by the Royal Academy of Engineers for his exceptional contribution to engineering for pioneering BIM . He taught the first courses in Object Modelling (BIM) at Harvard University, and was the winner of the 1990 British Computer Society Medal for Outstanding Innovation.
...an excellent resource on the history of BIM, its current status, and its future potential, with some very intriguing ideas for its further development... Ingram... has captured his extensive experience as one of the pioneering developers of BIM, which makes his analysis of current trends and the possible future of BIM very compelling. Every technical book has a different flavor based on the background and expertise of the author, and we are fortunate to have Ingram's captured in Understanding BIM.
