Course Details

This course will provide you with an understanding of why “Collaborative BIM” has been adopted as a UK Government requirement and how Building Information Modelling (BIM) supports Lean principles to reduce waste in construction and asset management. This course will provide an overview of the standards that define UK BIM Implementation and the fundamental processes of a Common Data Environment (CDE). 

It will also help you understand “BIM according to ISO 19650” - the new international standard (Part 1 and 2) and “UK BIM Implementation” from the perspective of clients and customers. The role of information in managing assets and projects more efficiently and the tools defined for this. In addition, you'll understand “BIM according to BS EN ISO 19650” and “UK BIM Implementation” from the perspective of designers, constructors and supply chain. Responding to the client's exchange information requirements (EIR). 

Tools used in the supply chain to manage and exchange information (CDE, COBie, IFC). The course will help you to put UK BIM Implementation into the broader context of information security, roles and responsibilities. You'll reflect on the impact delivery for your organization and what next steps need to be taken.

Course aim

The aim of this course is to raise awareness of, and to explain the basic principles of Building Information Modelling (BIM). The course will enable you to understand the concepts of BIM and how the UK is building its capability and approach to deliver “BIM Level 2”. It also provides an introduction to the more detailed BSI courses which focus on specific aspects of “ISO 19650” and the UK PAS 1192 series.
