BIM is here to stay.
So was CAD 30+ years ago that took over manual drafting. By and large, CAD is strictly a 2D technology system that uses many separate (usually 2D) drawings to explain a building. Drawing and editing lines has become faster and more efficient, but in the end, they are still collections of manually created, non-intelligent lines and texts.Fast forward to the present day, as buildings became more and more complex, specialisation in the design and construction process emerged. Integrated building systems continue to expand with the growth of technology building systems continue to expand with the growth of technology. In turn, this led to the need for more elaborate forms of information exchange.
BIM is born, and with it the foundation for a new approach to how buildings are designed, evaluated, represented,
and documented. Many projects have now successfully implemented BIM with significant benefits, including increased
design quality, improved field productivity, cost predictability, reduced conflicts and changes, reduced construction cost and duration to name a few. More and more projects in the future shall be implemented by BIM over CAD.
Welcome to the world of Building Information Modeling. Are you ready for BIM? This seminar cum workshop provides you with all the information to go into the BIM world with roadmaps. The roadmaps will lead to be a BIM compliance architectural firm. It will then guide you with information to do a BIM project or client with an ISO 19650 BIM status.
