CPD overview

The definition of BIM (Building Information Modelling) is now fairly well established, but as it takes a stronger hold, many questions still exist.

This talk aims to cover questions such as: What is BIM and what is design led BIM? How does a design practice begin in degrees to use BIM? How does the integration process work? Determining the right level of BIM for the project?

Learning Aims:

Provide a high level overview of the BIM workflow; Demonstrate real world case studies; Provide practical advice on implementing BIM; Carry out a practical exercise on office BIM strategy Learning.
