Course Title: Building Information Modeling.
Delivery Method: Live
Course Description: This 6.5 hour live presentation examines building information modeling (BIM) concepts and processes, BIM systems, standards and stakeholders, and BIM from project conception through building operation.
Learning Objective 1:
Learners will be able to identify weaknesses in traditional design and construction processes, and will be able to describe the ways in which building information modeling can reduce conflicts and changes during construction and detect clashes, improving construction quality, and building performance.
Learning Objective 2:
Learners will be able to use building information modeling to support interoperability, the integrated operation of building systems for the benefit of owners and occupants.
