The BIM for Contractors course is divided into two sections: the BIM-savvy contractor and the Construction Model. This is to focus on both the interpersonal and technical skills needed—the hard and soft skills respectively. Sometimes you will find soft skills discussed when reviewing technology or hard skills discussed with reviewing interpersonal collaboration. This is what makes BIM so challenging—it’s hard to separate the two concepts. A strong, BIM-savvy organization requires an understanding of both.
By the end of this course, you will be able to describe a contractor’s role in the BIM process, define the term “Federated Model,” describe the involvement of the Subcontractor in Design Assist, identify how Integrated Project Delivery and Building Information Modeling work to enhance the contractor’s bottom line, and list strategies for hosting a successful Lean BIM Coordination meeting.
