It was a privilege to represent Accenture at the recent BIM4 Professionals course in Johannesburg. There was good representation across the built environment ecosystem of role players in the session which made discussions and debates very interesting and very pertinent to the issues being faced today in the infrastructure delivery space. What is clear is that all representatives agree that BIM holds great value for the industry and for clients who are innovative and forward thinking enough to “insist” that the BIM methodology is followed.

As an architect, attending the course has made me realise that what we see when looking at beautiful images produced by architectural software is one side of the coin. The other side of the coin is the data that makes the image. Through BIM processes we can see that the image and the data are one – the image represents the data in a visual manner that we recognise and understand as a building.

Gerd Bolt – President @Pretoria Institute for Architecture

The course was well structured and very informative. The content covered a wide range of topics with regards to BIM and the implementation of it. Vaughan’s passion to inform the industry and to better workflows within companies is contagious. It was enlighten to meet professionals from different sectors, that share the same view on development and utilising technology and software to improve project management and communication. What a privilege to be part of this exciting journey with the BIM Institute.

Elna van der Merwe – BIM Coordinator @ DRA Global

I found the course very informative in the sense that I gained a complete understanding of what BIM is about, where South Africa stands with BIM in comparison with the rest of the globe, how to deliver a project from conception up to closeout complying with BIM protocol, a technical understanding for data exchange and up skilling ourselves as Quantity Surveyors
