EPIC's Buiding Information Modelling courses are offered live, by qualified and industry experienced instructors. They offer certified Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Professional Development Hours (PDHs) to help with any requirements your professional association may require.
Who Should Attend?
BIM changes how all stakeholders work on a project. Understanding the best practices and workflows will make sure everyone is working towards the same goal.
Architects and Engineers
There are many benefits to leveraging BIM workflows for your designs. BIM helps provide more context and data earlier in a project, allowing for a more informed decision making process. By developing a single, powerful 3D model that can be used for analysis, simulation, visualization and documentation, project delivery can be streamlined, allocating more time to work through important design choices, rather than drawing lines in two dimensions.
Project delivery has changed substantially with the introduction of BIM. Clients' expectations are evolving and the tools production teams use are much more complex. Having knowledge of these tools will be essential when managing the teams that use them to deliver your projects. While you may not be working directly in models, understanding BIM’s capabilities and how it is used on projects will allow you to lead your teams to be much more effective.
Technicians and Technologists
As a technologist, BIM will drastically change your day-to-day work. While there is a lot of potential to improve your productivity, learning how to take advantage of these new tools can be difficult. Not only do you need to learn new software, you also need to learn its best practices.
Owners - Operators
The building and infrastructure industry has had essentially stagnant, if not falling levels of productivity for the last 25 years. While there are many reasons, the slow adoption and implementation of digital technologies is significant. Processes and workflows have not taken advantage of digitization and remain costly. BIM looks to fix this technological gap and improve the efficiency of our industry. However, it is not as easy as purchasing Revit. There is a lot of nuance to understand and prepare for, and having that knowledge will allow for success.
