CECA BIM Training & Implementation Seminar/Webinar - March 7, 2012

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing building data over the entire lifecycle of a building. It is becoming a widely used tool in the construction industry.


As the use of Design-Build project delivery methods continues to increase, it is critical that electrical contractors become fluent with BIM technology and software.


The delivery of a four-module BIM training and implementation course will include the following topics:

·         familiarization with the various software platforms and their pitfalls

·         criteria for choosing and implementing BIM solutions

·         determining the appropriate level of representation in a BIM model needed for design, estimation, coordination, scheduling and fabrication

·         awareness of contractual implications of using a shared BIM model

·         how BIM can facilitate sustainable practices and how BIM can provide opportunities for new services

·         strategies for developing and implementing BIM in a company
