Building Information Modelling (6073)

Last Updated: 23 Sep 2016
As the Construction and Built Environment industry moves into a new technological era, it is essential that people working in the industry enhance their digital skills. Building Information Modelling (BIM) involves creating and using intelligent 3D models to develop and communicate project decisions. It’s a whole new way of working, and it is predicated that within a decade it will be integral to the construction industry.

 

BIM enables people to share details of every aspect of a project, collaborating more efficiently and avoiding costly mistakes, allowing a building’s owner to make the right decisions before, during and after construction.

Our qualifications were developed with the support of consultants working directly with the BIM Task Group, supporting and helping to deliver the objectives of the Government Construction Strategy and the requirement to strengthen the public sector’s capability in BIM implementation.

The Level 3 Fundamentals of BIM is aimed at raising awareness for anyone working with BIM, for individuals working within the construction industry that will come into contact with BIM and for construction companies needing to respond to the BIM agenda.

 

The Level 3 Implementation of BIM is aimed at developing the knowledge and understanding for anyone working directly on BIM projects, enabling someone to understand how to implement BIM within a construction company.
Available to deliver in the following:
  • England
  • Northern Ireland

General Information

What Is Involved In Studying This Course?

Learners will gain knowledge of fundamental concepts associated with BIM; from knowledge of key terminology to the principles and standards associated with BIM implementation in the UK.  They will develop an understanding of the drivers leading to BIM implementation, the barriers to success and the benefits that can be gained.

 
Learners will then be able to progress to Implementation of BIM, which provides the underpinning knowledge and understanding needed to support decision making, to plan the introduction of BIM in an organisation, and learn about the implementation process. 

 

The qualification also develops an understanding of the requirements of BIM tenders, including the commercial implications of BIM projects and fundamentals of BIM project delivery.

What Careers Can This Lead To?

There are a range of roles that will require BIM, and there is a particular shortage of people with a deep understanding of how to use BIM software.

 

Companies are starting to embrace BIM, especially with the government mandate driving change by announcing the use of collaborative 3D BIM on all government projects by 2016.

 

Learners will be able to use our qualifications to extend their current role within an organisation with BIM decision making capability, or enter the industry as a new entrant with sought after knowledge on how to plan and facilitate the implementation of BIM within an organisation.

What Is Involved With Delivering This Course?

These qualifications will often be delivered alongside other construction related qualifications eg apprenticeships, Level 3 Technical Levels. Although the qualifications are specific to the Construction and Built Environment industries, centres should allow for contextualisation to local markets. Discussions, seminar presentations and the use of personal and/or industrial experience will all be valuable to develop an understanding of the purpose of BIM. It will not be software specific. The fundamentals of BIM could be delivered over one or two days or as a series of short sessions through lectures and research using the Internet. The implementation of BIM could be delivered over one week (or 10 days part-time). A project based approach to delivery, using input from the construction industry, would allow learners to understand the application of the unit content across all phases of implementation. Centres new to BIM, or looking to increase their own understanding of its impact on the construction industry, should take advantage of our CPD course.
