Building Information Modelling Management

Building information modelling (BIM) is a process involving the structured sharing and coordination of digital and non-digital information about a building project throughout its entire lifecycle, from design through procurement and construction and beyond, into the operation and management stage, all the way through to demolishment. It involves the efficient coordination of processes, workflows, people, documentation, graphic/non-graphic assets and technology. Importantly, the course provides practitioners in the property and construction sector, and related stakeholders providing services for it, with a qualification to be employed in a Management role in BIM projects.
