Finith Jernigan, 4Site Press publisher and author of “BIG BIM little bim” says, “It is an honor to be recognized alongside established publishers such as McGraw-Hill, Wiley and HarperCollins.” Other publishers recognized by awards include Portfolio/Penguin Group, D.K. Publishing, Bloomberg, Gotham Books/Penguin Group and Hyperion.

4Site Publishing was created in 2007 by Jernigan to promote increased productivity and profitability with improved business processes enabled by Building Information Models. Building industry leaders predict the BIM software tool set will replace CAD – Computer Aided Design. CAD is the current software tool set used to create electronic drawings that are mainly two-dimensional.

BIM allows 3D, 4D, 5D, 6D, 7D, 8D...and many other Dimensions to be visually represented with powerful relational databases.

Jernigan says it is also an honor having his first title listed along with books by Seth Godin and Suze Orman, both of whom won awards in the Success/Motivation category. Seth Godin’s “The Dip: The Little Book that Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick)” from Portfolio/Penguin Group was a Gold Winner. Suze Orman’s “Women & Money: Owning the Power to Control Your Destiny” from Spiegel & Grau won a Bronze Award.

A Technology Category Bronze Award was given to Jernigan’s book, which focuses on advanced business processes and opportunities realized with use of Building Information Model software.

With more than 40 percent of the world’s resources focused on building construction and operation, many industry leaders predict that effective use of BIM can help fight global climate change.

While BIM has proven it’s ability to save time, money and physical resources, it has not reached wide-spread use because much of the discussion has been at an academic level. However, international building industry leaders have touted “BIG BIM little bim” as clarifying the complex subject of Building Information Models.

“As someone who co-founded and built a 20-person architectural general practice, and then moved to the client side of the table, this is a book I would urge any client to read,” says, Gerald Davis, IFMA Fellow, ASTM Fellow, AIA, CFM and President of International Centre for Facilities, Inc.

The ICF is a not-for-profit, non-governmental, scientific and educational organization based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. ICF helps improve the functionality, suitability and quality of the places where people work and live, and of other constructed assets.

“Although at first impression the author is talking to design consultants, it would also be particularly useful for facility managers and other client executives,” says Davis.

Jernigan’s book was the basis of an American Institute of Architects West Virginia State Convention seminar that received an unprecedented amount of press coverage. (See links below.) The book will also be highlighted at a presentation in New Orleans on April 1, 2008. Jernigan will use a fire station project from the book and show how it can be replicated many times to provide “full” coverage of New Orleans in the virtual world of Google Earth.

It is demonstrations such as this that differentiates Jernigan from other BIM proponents.

Nigel Davies says, “BIG BIM little bim’ by Finith E. Jernigan is, simply put, the most accurate description of how to ‘BIM’ that we have at this point in time.” Davies, a London based international expert that consults to a number of the world's leading architectural and engineering designers said, “In broad terms (the book) breaks down the concept of Building Information Models into “bim” (lowercase) as software and “BIM” (uppercase) as integrated design and exchange of project data.”

Dana K. “Deke” Smith, FAIA, is known as the father of the U.S. National CAD Standard and is currently working to establish a BIM Standard to help improve adoption of the powerful BIM tool set. “The buildingSMART Alliance in North America is working the BIG BIM issue and I believe that it is a very rich environment for significant transformation in the way we do business,” Smith says. “Finith has done our industry a great service in pointing out this very concept. I heartily recommend this book be part of your mandatory reading.”

“BIG BIM little bim” has also been featured in Charleston, West Virginia. The Charleston Gazette, West Virginia’s “state” paper, provided unprecedented coverage of a single seminar at an American Institute of Architects state convention. Five newspaper stories and two broadcasts on local television provided coverage of the education sessions.

Our team of presenters provided a series of pre-seminar education sessions in a unique approach to professional education. Free education sessions in the Charleston City Hall Technology Conference Center showed that architects...and civic leaders...could participate in more productive design and urban planning processes with advanced Building Information Model “BIM” technology. BIM is said to be the technology that will replace “CAD” – Computer Aided Design.

March 20, 2008 – Business page cover story “Architecture on Steroids”

February 22, 2008 – Main section, page three
"I'm thinking a little different," said Debbie Pye. "I'm thinking of a garage with your home above. And I like the idea I can hop on and off a trolley or ride a bike, with little shops that you can jump in and out of. And we have a beautiful river. Why not have a pier with tables where you can eat beside the river?"

February 22, 2008 - Editorial endorsement
“...architects joined the action with software tools that create images of suggested changes - such as a wraparound walkway from the Kanawha River shoreline up Elk River to the Civic Center, or a marina with paddleboats and canoes for fun and fitness.”

February 15, 2008 - Business page cover story
“BIM expert Finith Jernigan took the ideas he heard and drew them onto a Google Earth map of Charleston... Within moments, an eight-story housing complex appeared on computer screens throughout the room.”

February 11, 2008 - Cover Story
“Working from another site that day, architect and BIM guru Finith Jernigan started with Google Earth images of downtown Charleston. He plopped down some new buildings on the riverfront district.”
