BIM 110 - BIM for Architects

BIM 110 - BIM for Architects



Course duration: 1.5 hours

The BIM 110 course is divided into two sections: the BIM-savvy architect and the Design Intent Model. This is to focus on both the interpersonal and the technical skills needed—the hard and soft skills respectively. Sometimes you'll find soft skills discussed when reviewing technology or hard skills discussed with reviewing interpersonal collaboration. This is what makes BIM so challenging—it's hard to separate the two concepts. A strong, BIM-savvy organization requires an understanding of both.

By the end of this course, you will be able to: describe an architect's role in the BIM process and expand on the BIM toolset skills needed by the architect, list the model development minimums of the Design Intent Model, identify how the Design Intent Model becomes the Record Model, and discuss data integration in Existing Conditions, Design Intent Models, and Record Models.
