What is Building information modelling (BIM)?
Building information modelling (BIM) is a process for creating and managing information on a construction project across the project lifecycle. One of the key outputs of this process is the Building Information Model, the digital description of every aspect of the built asset. This model draws on information assembled collaboratively and updated at key stages of a project. Creating a digital Building Information Model enables those who interact with the building to optimise their actions, resulting in a greater whole life value for the asset. BIM gets people and information working together effectively and efficiently through defined processes and technology.
What is the future of BIM?
The future of the construction industry is digital, and BIM is the future of design and long term facility management; it is government led and driven by technology and clear processes; and it is implementing change across all industries. As hardware, software and cloud applications herald greater capability to handle increasing amounts of raw data and information, use of BIM will become even more pronounced than it is in current projects.
In addition to the apprenticeship training you will receive hands on experience including mentoring and coaching from experienced members of the team. Following the apprenticeship programme we would expect you to have developed an understanding of the following: ·
- UK Government Construction Strategy and ‘BIM’ Level 2 requirements
- National and Industry Standards related to BIM
- The role of Project and Asset Information Models
- Information Management Roles in the standard (PAS1192-2:2013)
- Managing Project Information – creating processes and procedures
- The Information Delivery Cycle and how it works in practice (PAS1192-2:2013)
- The Collaborative Production of Information - creating processes and procedures
- Overview of the Common Data Environment (BS1192:2007)
