BIM Fundamentals

Gain a detailed understanding of the key drivers, requirements and strategic alignment needed to deliver Building Information Modeling (BIM) and how it allows you to achieve a faster, more efficient delivery of projects.

From April 2016, the UK government will mandate BIM Level 2 for all centrally procured government contracts. For the construction industry, this presents an exciting opportunity to embrace change, increase productivity and secure new contracts.

The process of BIM allows those who interact with it to optimize their actions, resulting in a greater whole life value for their asset. This course provides the knowledge you need to understand the fundamental principles of BIM, in particular Level 2 and its associated outcomes. You’ll focus on the context, key drivers and benefits that relate to the governments objectives of achieving Level 2 BIM by 2016.

Grasp the key management principles, themes and terminology of BIM and how to apply these within your organization, as well the drivers for success and return on investment (ROI). You’ll gain the relevant understanding and foundation to utilize BIM on your next project.
