Course Description

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an organizational, philosophical, and strategic change to the construction industry. How BIM is embraced within a firm is largely left up to those interpreting this philosophy into practice. With the idea that a learner learns best through repetition, BIM Introduction introduces the foundational concepts so that in subsequent courses designed for specific stakeholders we can review more specifically how that concept applies—rather than introduce the concept.

By the end of this course, you will be able to clarify BIM misconceptions by discussing why they exist and the realities of the industry, define BIM as a process and develop an understanding of why BIM and Revit are not synonymous terms, introduce the benefits of modeling for the various stakeholders in the architecture, engineering, construction and operations industry, and present the industry standard tools previously developed to manage the BIM process within the industry.
