"BIM Models"

It's with alarming frequency we're hearing more and more about this "BIM Model" thing... which is obviously good and bad.

Good: people are starting to get into Building Information Modeling (and when they're really into it, they'll call it Virtual Design and Construction)

Bad: BIM Model is a redundant term.  It's Building Information Model Model.... or Building Information Modeling Model... either way it's ugly.

The Fix?  Call it "The BIM" or "The Model" just never call it both.
