A New Era - Introduction to BIM - This event has already finished

11 December 2012
BRE Watford

A one day course introducing the basic principles of BIM

Details :
The course will give you an objective and realistic understanding of the benefits that can be gained by employing BIM in construction.  It will explain what BIM really is in relation to CAD and other approaches, the need for interdisciplinary collaboration and introduce the way in which systems operate in order to achieve these benefits.  It will cover issues of interoperability of systems, legal issues, standards and guidance.  Examples from overseas will briefly be discussed in terms of lessons to be learned.

This course will be of value to those who wish to learn about the real benefits beyond the simply graphical and visual aspects of BIM that are often concentrated upon.
