This course delivers an overview of the drivers, barriers and benefits of the implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) within the UK construction sector. The theory covers all the commercial documentation that enables BIM work flows, whilst utilising existing contractual/ procurement routes, as well as experimental procurement paths being trialled within ‘early adopter’ projects. The classes are split into two hours computer lab + one hour lecture to facilitate hands on experience of the powerful BIM tools that are enabling 3D visualisation, 4D sequencing, 5D Quantity TakeOff and Estimating etc.
Successful completion of the course will position candidates as potential BIM Champions within their workplace organisation.
The course is aimed at graduate construction students/non-construction graduates working as ‘Commercial Managers’/Quantity Surveyors employed by construction (building or civil engineering) contractors.
