Course Content

This particular course will also include a workshop on HOW TO  – exchange information using the classification standard using  Revit, Navisworks and WinQS. This will give delegates a more in-depth understanding of categorisation in design , the process in which ideas and objects are classified, recognized, differentiated, and understood when working with Navisworks and WINQS  and contractor using Microsoft Project and CCS Candy on the project.

Through the two day  training programme, you will get to understand  the entire BIM life cycle and how other countries globally implement BIM standards. You will also be guided through each of the major project stages, from the strategic definition of the project , the BIM execution plans right through to handover and end of use.  At each stage the trainer will demonstrate how to balance technical requirements with  management skills so you are confident in implementing BIM information exchange process.

By the end of the course, you will have embedded  the methods required for you to execute BIM on a project ; and will have the ability to successfully set up the classification structure that all team members will require on the project.
