Crews are restoring power and clearing roads in the wake of Hurricane Ian, which made landfall in southwest Florida on Sept. 28, causing extensive damage in Fort Myers as well as to the Sanibel Causeway, leaving it impassable. The Category 4 storm washed out roads, caused extensive floods and power outages and damaged buildings.
The construction industry is increasingly embracing collaborative digital tools like BIM. While leveraging BIM brings many benefits, it also comes with unique challenges for contractors trying to land civil projects.
