Collaborative Construction empowers stakeholders in the U.S Construction Industry to utilize collaborative agreements, BIM and lean construction methods to deliver integrated construction services more efficiently and more productively.

James is now a leader in the collaborative construction revolution sweeping the industry. He is a member of the National Building Information Model Standards (NBIMS) Project Committee and the Build SMART Alliance's Business Process Integration Task Team, (BPITT), James advocates the use of collaborative agreements, BIM and lean construction methods because these tools exponentially increase productivity and efficiency, saving owners money and earning higher profits for others. The U.S. Construction Industry is desperately seeking a better business model and James is working hard to provide it!
