A Personal View of Newforma as a Process and Information Model Tool

In this Viewpoint article, Terry Nichols, who recently retired from HOK and is currently chairman of the Newforma UK User Community, discusses the value that can be obtained from organizing the processes and information employed during the design development phase of AEC, so that this experience can be checked for completeness and compliance with policies, procedures, building codes, etc. as well as re-used for future projects. He considers a possible solution to this through the use of Newforma as a tool to guide, monitor and capture processes and experience in order to evolve better ways of working.
