Course overview

The BIM project manager plays a crucial role in advising clients, internal and external stakeholders on the benefits of BIM, and in implementing and managing the major BIM processes.

This requires the demonstration of a complete knowledge of the BIM process & the ability to create the project environment in which BIM can realize its full potential.

Through our interactive training program, you will cover the entire BIM project by following a simulated BIM Project through its lifecycle. You will be guided through each of the major project stages, from the strategic definition of the project right through to handover, operations and end of use.  At each stage the trainer will demonstrate how to balance technical requirements with project management skills, so you are confident in implementing BIM methodology.

 By the end of the course, you will have embedded the practical tools and methods required at each stage of the BIM project process; and will have the ability to successfully manage your own or client’s BIM project.

Course Benefits

This course will give you the skills and knowledge to effectively manage a BIM project at each stage. The feature of this course is a simulated BIM project which will run throughout the course to embed practical knowledge at each stage of the BIM project process.

  • Recognize the legal implications of BIM in terms of intellectual property, insurances and potential liabilities
  • Evaluate contract requirements and commercial data of BIM models, and the inputs and outputs to be expected at each stage of the project lifecycle

Learning resources format


Within each module will be dedicated e-learning sessions. Within these courses delegates will gain an understanding around the practical techniques and international standards required within the construction and quantity surveying pathway.

Reading material

Learners will further study and understanding of the methodologies with the directed reading material. Sourced from textbooks and articles, these readings support development throughout the course program.

Case study

Technical case studies provide examples of practice, within these case studies participants will practice the theory taught within the module. Responses will be shared within the online forums.

Discussion forum

Questions, comments, case studies will be posted to the forum (one module) with the objective of allowing the participants to reflect on the e-learning and also to discuss their own experiences under each module heading around QS practice.

End of module quiz

At the end of each module is a short quiz, to check understanding of the content and to help track progress.

Live web classes

On completion of all the technical modules, participants will be required to attend one 1.5 hour live online web class. The structure of this session is to provide a detail overview of the practices and principles of QS. Provide participants with an open live forum to discuss their own interpretations and understanding of the learning outcomes of the course.
