Course Description

BIM (Building Information Modeling) is becoming a crucial and even mandated process to ensure the planning, design, and construction of buildings is highly efficient and collaborative.  BIM is an acronym for Building Information Modeling. It is a highly collaborative process that allows multiple stakeholders and AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) professionals to collaborate on the planning, design, and construction of a building within one 3D model. It can also span into the operation and management of buildings using data that owners have access to. This data allows owners and stakeholders to make decisions based on pertinent information derived from the model— even after the building is constructed.

Course Objectives

  • Providing an understanding of why ‘Collaborative BIM’ has been adopted as a Government requirement
  • Learning how Building Information Modelling (BIM) supports Lean principles to reduce waste
  • Providing an overview of the standards that define  BIM implementation
  • Discussing fundamental processes of a Common Data Environment (CDE)

Who Should Attend?

  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Construction  professionals
