Through the two day training programme, delegates will get to understand the entire BIM life-cycle and how eight other countries globally implement BIM standards and classifications. Delegates will also be guided through each of the major delivery stages, from the strategic BIM 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 delegates are confident in implementing the BIM information exchange process.
By the end of the course, delegates will have also had an opportunity to understand BIM in an African context using the processes and the methods requires for you to execute BIM on a project using South African National building standards, and the ability to successfully set up the classification structure that all team members will require on the project.
The course will include the general process related to using the South African Standard Method of Measurement and ASAQS Elemental classification categorisation when organising or tagging elements and objects for construction requirements, products and activities. This is the most significant step forward for BIM standardisation for construction projects in Africa.
