Charitable Doll House Project in Cincinnati

Join ACI in Bringing a Smart Built Culture to Cincinnati
One Doll House at a Time!

Transitioning from an industrial economy to a knowledge economy presents challenges and opportunities.  Deploying planning, design and construction tools virtually and physically is a challenge; leveraging the experience of others who’ve done so is an opportunity.  ACI’s digital plan room initiative opens a window into the knowledge economy for those who participate in the Charitable Doll House Project.  Contact Linda Bach at ACI to reserve a seat at a kick off session in February, 2015.

Two game changers accelerate the built industry’s transition to the knowledge economy.  Building Information Modeling, (BIM) a digital planning and design process that enables virtual planning, design and construction, and Integrated Project Delivery, (IPD) a procurement and delivery strategy that empowers teams operating in the built environment to collaborate on delivery of planning, design and construction services.   The Charitable Doll House Project will teach members to leverage BIM and IPD as game changers in construction.

ACI strengthens member companies by advocating on their behalf, providing timely and useful education on critical topics and enabling members to work together on integrated and collaborative teams that deliver excellent projects. The Charitable Doll House Project advances those core principles.

Skeptics say, “Doll houses? Please. BIM and IPD only work on large projects.”  Wrong.  BIM and IPD work on both large and small projects.  In fact, the Charitable Doll House Project offers stakeholders opportunities to explore the use of BIM and IPD tools and processes in low cost, low risk environments.  Integrated teams, formed and mentored by BIM and IPD enabled professionals, will build virtual and physical doll houses and sell those doll houses at the Spirit of Construction’s Silent Auction in October, 2015. Participants will learn valuable skills, while raising money for their favorite charity. 

The Charitable Doll House Project launches in February via a series of interactive workshops and collaborative team building exercises led by Collaborative Construction and Benjamin, Yocum & Heather, LLC.

The Charitable Doll House Project offers ACI members an opportunity to create a new generation plan room while testing game changing tools and processes as collaborative members of cross disciplinary BIM and IPD enabled teams. While ACI and its partners facilitate formation of teams, relevant training, and access to critical tools, processes and expertise, integrated teams need only bring enthusiasm and a willingness to think outside the box!

ACI members interested in forming or joining a team should contact Linda Bach at ACI for a seat at a kick off session in February, 2015.
