Praise for The Commercial Real Estate Revolution

"The authors' case is a powerhouse, busting through old myths and paradigms to face the flat new world of true collaboration and trust. This book makes industry transformation for commercial real estate and construction more than possible—it provides a road map to lowering costs, removing waste, and producing the kind of sustainable buildings that will leave a positive legacy to the next generation."
Stephen M. R. Covey, author of the New York Times bestseller The Speed of Trust

"To anyone who looks closely at the design and construction industry, it is clear that project delivery is not delivering. Projects continue to take too long, cost too much, injure and kill too many workers, and routinely fail to meet the owner's expectations. In The Commercial Real Estate Revolution, the current problems are explored and a coherent set of suggested improvements are advanced. Individuals who are interested in thriving during this period of rapid change and emerging as industry leaders tomorrow would be well served to embrace the ideas that are described in The Commercial Real Estate Revolution."
Will Lichtig, Attorney, McDonough Holland & Allen PC, ENR "Newsmaker" for 2007

"The Commercial Real Estate Revolution captures the essence of the important mind shift that is required for the AEC industry to transform itself from a linear, paper-intensive, silo-based workflow to a synchronous digital collaboration. This evolution is ten percent technical and ninety percent sociological, and this important book illuminates a path forward."
Steve Jones, Senior Director of Business Development, McGraw-Hill Construction

"At a time when our construction community is being presented with formulas like BIM+IPD+LEED=HPB (High-Performing Buildings), we seem to be in a confusing soup of acronyms rather than a recipe for success. Mindshift not only successfully explains the acronyms and formulas but gives us a blueprint for HPBs."
Arol Wolford, founder of Construction Market Data

"I truly appreciate Mindshift taking on the daunting task of fully explaining and supporting our goal to transform the construction industry. The authors do a great job of raising awareness and will certainly 'shift minds' to the new culture in this industry. This is BIG BIM in all its glory. I can only hope that you will join our cause after reading this book to help make the changes occur sooner than later."
Dana K. "Deke" Smith, FAIA, Executive Director, buildingSMART alliance
