BIM Management is either a project or organisational function that includes strategic implementation of BIM combined with technical skills and knowledge to be able to support a BIM project. It can either be a client facing or an organisational role but is essential to the success of BIM projects.
The CIOB BIM course focuses on the requirements and skills needed to qualify as a BIM management professsional. You will learn about what BIM can achieve on a project, ensuring vision and strategy are aligned to projects, engaging external stakeholders, and collaborating with partners and internal teams. This will allow you to assess, plan and provide support to clients and internal stakeholders during the BIM process, and manage all the related documentation and information.
In summary, this training will align you to the skills necessary to manage BIM projects, without all the extra information that’s not relevant to these projects. This course will also allow you to apply for BIM Management Certification.
You must have at least one of the following:
- A degree or qualification in a construction related profession
- 3-5 years of experience working within the context of BIM regardless of the size or nature of the organisations you may have worked for
- Practical experience of BIM Management in your chosen field
At the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Explain to internal and external stakeholders the importance of BIM and how clearly defined requirements at the very beginning can provide great benefits to a project
- Support a BIM implementation within your organisation or on behalf of a client for a given project
- Understand the importance of prequalification and the tendering process and how BIM requirements may alter this stage
- Understand the key responsibilities of BIM Management throughout all stages of a project lifecycle
- Identify the BIM technologies and processes which can support and promote benefits for an entire project team
