BIM Basics



Course Introduction

In November 2010, BCA formulated the BIM Roadmap to steer the industry towards wide adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM) by 2015.

BIM was identified  as one of the key technology drivers to improve productivity and level of integration across the various disciplines in the construction value chain.

Since July 2015, the authority submissions for building plans are mandated to be submitted in BIM format for regulatory approval. This a 3-day programme that aims to equip the industry with BIM capabilities.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process that utilises information to execute modelling. BIM facilitates coordination and collaboration works with building professional of various disciplines in a digital realm. This facilitation is applied from the inception of the project design right to design development and tender stage and its eventual construction and completion stages.

There will be lectures and lab hands-on practical sessions for this course.
