)-- Two-hour interactive online offering for design and construction professionals explains Building Information Modeling – how it works, who can benefit, and why it’s important
To help architects, engineers, contractors and other design professionals keep up with the rapidly evolving world of virtual modeling technology, RedVector is pleased to release “Building Information Modeling (BIM): An Introduction.”
The course covers the ways that a Building Information Model can use a digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of a facility to enable collaboration among all the stakeholders on a project, and shows how it can increase productivity from the planning stages through the finished product. The origins of BIM are discussed, along with some common limitations, current standardization activities, and its increasing popularity as a primary tool in the industry for project information and coordination.
“Because Building Information Modeling is so effective for helping pros pull together and organize data from the many different sectors involved in planning, it naturally follows that BMI can save time on a project and improve quality while decreasing costs,” says Jeff Nippes, RedVector’s Product Development Coordinator. “It’s quickly becoming essential for industry professionals to have a working knowledge of BIM.”
Because BIM already offers advantages as a single source of building information for the design and construction processes and may eventually impact the entire industry, RedVector will continue to keep A/E/C professionals informed with courses like “Building Information Modeling (BIM): An Introduction” as new developments begin to unfold.
