Program Summary

 

According to a survey by McGraw-Hill Construction, Building Information Modeling (BIM) has brought significant benefits such as reduced errors and reworks for architects, engineers and contractors as well as improved the ability to work collaboratively between owners and relevant stakeholders. However, the adoption of BIM technology in Singapore has been relatively slow and it is large due to the lack of expertise in BIM technology.

Introduction

 

With increasing government attention to improve construction productivity, companies in the AEC industry face the challenges of greater competition and tighter regulatory requirements.  Emerging technologies such as Building Information Modeling is playing a greater role in helping companies to increase productivity and reduce costs.

 

However, majority of the AEC professionals are unfamiliar with BIM and lack of the relevant experience and expertise in using BIM in their projects. Companies also do not understand the level of maturity that suits their organizational needs, therefore, are unable to utilize and build BIM capabilities.


Therefore, this intensive 2-day program is designed for Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry professionals to acquire the necessary knowledge and tools to effectively leverage and build BIM capabilities in your organization. Led by James Brown, a leading strategic BIM expert and trusted consultant for major retailers, you will understand how BIM works, assess your organization’s BIM maturity and quantify return on investment to gain management support. You will also gain a comprehensive understanding of international BIM standards that enabled you to evaluate their pros and cons.
