The following chart shows the organizational hierarchy of a typical mid-size architectural office. In this example, there are two independent project teams with one architect and two draftsmen working on each. The project architect of the first team also serves as a part-time BIM Manager in the office. Due to the relatively small firm size and the generally limited-size projects, informal communication is sufficient to handle project coordination issues.
The typical problem for offices of this size is that they can’t afford a full-time CAD and IT Manager, so somebody in the office has to take on the responsibilities on a part-time basis, which naturally decreases their productivity.
