Introduction to Building Information Management: A Taster Day

The Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry (AEC) is changing: Building Information Modelling and Management (BIM) is becoming the industry standard for the design, build and management of modern buildings and structures. BIM is not just a new technology, or application, but an entirely new method of working that is being adopted across the built environment industries.

This course has been developed specifically as a taster course for a postgraduate programme (as well as a free standing CPD) that responds to the need for skilled and experienced BIM professionals, not only in the use of the technology, but in its implementation, from design, to procurement, to financial management and throughout the conception, construction and the life of a building.

The cost to attend this event is £180 (lunch not included).

On this course you will:

  • cover the fundamentals of project and financial management software such as Revit, CostX, Synchro, as well as design software such as AutoCAD
  • learn how to integrate the new technology and methodology of BIM with the established principles of planning and project management
  • explore the practical and theoretical applications - and challenges - of BIM
  • further training and educational programmes will be explained
