Description
Building Information Modelling [BIM] is an area that is developing in the construction industry, with an increasing number of projects undertaking the BIM process. However, there is a common misconception that BIM means 3D design only. In fact, it means considerably more. BIM is a process for creating and managing all of the information on a project ‑ before, during and after construction. The output of this process is the Building Information Model, the digital description of every aspect of the constructed asset.





This module will cover the BIM project lifecycle and provide the learner with detailed knowledge and the skills required in order to manage each step of the BIM process. This module will provide an understanding of the BIM process and standards including the essential elements for successful delivery of projects to BIM level 2. It will also detailing collaboration and implementation processes.
