The Future is Now BIM Course Feb 27 2015

  • 02/27/2015

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that goes far beyond switching to new software, it requires changes to traditional phases and more data sharing than is common during the design and construction stages. Electrical contractors, manufacturers, suppliers and distributors are often short-changed during the MEP coordination process due to their under-utilization of technology, such as BIM, which can be used to assist them in performing pre-planning and pre-fabrication. This course focuses on what electrical contractors need to know about BIM and the process of generating and managing building data during its lifecycle.

 Following this course, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the design and construction stages of a project when using BIM
  • Explain how to use the BIM process for pre-planning and pre-fabricating
  • Discuss design and clash detection software
  • Describe the potential cost and time savings with BIM
  • Discuss the current status of BIIM in the electrical contracting industry 

Target audience: Individuals at all levels in electrical contracting firms.

Duration: Full-day

CE Hours: 6 Hours
