At its simplest, Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a piece of 3D technology, but BIM also offers a philosophical approach to the design and construction of buildings. The course covers basic concepts, getting started, and putting BIM to work in building construction. It also provides an overview of how BIM can improve productivity, cost-effectiveness, worker-effectiveness, and error-management during the six phases of a project: design, bidding, construction, commissioning, delivery, and as-builts.
