     • Undertake a simulated survey using high-precision techniques.




 




CLTS/SP3   Introduction to Building Information Modelling [1 Day Course]

 

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the buzz word within the construction industry at the moment, yet many people do not understand what BIM is. BIM is the virtual design construction and then the management of buildings, enabling all participants within this construction cycle to work in a collaborative way. In the UK, where change within the construction industry is very conservative BIM has been very slow off the ground and due to this the UK government is strongly encouraging  the industry to adopt BIM, by putting in markers and milestones over the next few years. Which will mean if a company hasn’t adopted it by 2016 at the latest they will be unable to tender for any construction related design work within the public domain in relation to buildings. Therefore companies need to take steps in educating their staff and then changing the way they work in order to keep working in the future.

 



















The course is designed for professionals and any others (Directors, senior managers and decision makers) who need to understand what BIM is, and how it works. Little or no previous experience is required.

  On completion of the course delegates should be able to:-
     • Explain what BIM is, and what it is not.
     • Explain why their company should use BIM.
     • Give examples of where BIM could be applied to their business.
     • Discuss the pros and cons of using BIM, in particular potential cost, time and resource savings.
     • Talk with confidence about future applications of BIM and potential developments.
