BIM has been called many things: a paradigm shift, a disruptive innovation, and a new market segment. The fundamental similarity in all of these classifications is that BIM has changed the way the construction industry does business. These changes can be felt in the largest of scopes to the most granular of activities. In past courses, we stated that most BIM projects follow the same paths, while at the same time each BIM project tends to be unique within that path. In this course, we will focus on how BIM as a paradigm shift has impacted the owner’s team.
By the end of BIM 140 – BIM for the Owner’s Team course, you’ll be able to describe the benefits of a BIM process from an owner’s point of view, describe the owner’s team and how a BIM Commissioner can help support their BIM goals, identify requirements of a BIM savvy RFP, the digital templates, and BIM project documents, and review the available National BIM Standards supporting the efforts of the BIM savvy owner.
