Both public and large private developers are increasingly looking for their consultants to be BIM-enabled.

The course will support those starting their BIM journey in the surveying profession. It covers what is BIM, how it achieves collaboration and integration, BIM commercial and contract, ISO19650, and how to effectively address the BIM challenge from process, people and technology perspectives. In addition, case studies will be used to explain the different purposes of BIM, its benefits and challenges, and how it has been adopted in design, construction and facilities management (FM).

The trainer will share the following cases:

  1. BIM contract adopted in the US, UK and Singapore
  2. Demostration of BIM applications in quantity take-off
  3. Other examples emerging BIM technology
