BMI Unit I: An Introduction to Building Information Modeling will explain the benefits of improved visualization on a construction project through the use of 3D, 4D, and 5D models. This unit will also establish a knowledge base of BIM terminology and outlines case studies showing BIM implementation.

Following completion of BIM Unit I, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the importance of BIM
  • Define common BIM terminology
  • Discuss how BIM can be used as a communication and collaboration tool
  • Explain the benefits of BIM
  • Explain the federated model process
  • Compare examples of successful BIM usage
  • Discuss issues associated with starting BIM
  • Create a company BIM assessment

BMI is changing the way projects are constructed. Whether you are a prime contractor using BIM across an entire project or a subcontractor impacted by a specific BIM implementation, this emerging practice requires new mindsets and technological know-how in order to achieve significant improvements in efficiency and cost control.
