BIM: The Future of Construction Technology
Thursday, November 14, 2019
11:30 A.M. - 1:30 P.M.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a new age intelligent computer-generated model-based process that offers users the ability to create as well as manage building projects in a more accurate, faster, economical, and organized manner. This course gives the audience an in depth first look into the BIM process including software demonstration with varying levels of detail as well as an explanation of the basic workflow companies can expect whenever they participate in a BIM driven project. Understanding these basic principles allows contracting agencies to be more prepared for the growing quantity of jobs that require BIM coordination during the construction phase of a project.
