BIM is a process for creating and managing all of the information on a project through the whole life cycle of a built asset, from initial design to construction, maintaining and finally decommissioning, through digital modeling.
BIM is all about collaboration - between engineers, owners, architects and contractors in a three-dimensional virtual construction environment (shared data environment), and it shares information across these disciplines.
BIM allows design and construction teams to communicate about design and coordinate information across different levels that has been unseen before. This information remains with the project, from before beginning construction, right throughout its lifetime.
It also helps to analyse any potential impacts. A wide range of projects such as a new building or railway infrastructure uses BIM.
The use of BIM goes beyond the planning and design phase of the project, extending throughout the building life cycle, supporting processes including cost management, construction management, project management and facility operation.

BIM Facility Management
Further to this, learners should be able to evaluate the most suitable advantages BIM offers. Learners will be able to have acquired knowledge and information about how BIM is a potential conduit to minimising wastage, risks and hazards in the operation of a facility. Learners will be able to understand how accurate calculations of the operation of a facility can be attained using the BIM model. Finally, learners will be able to use COBie to provide a structure for the lifecycle capture and delivery of information needed by facility managers.
Our BIM qualification will give you a BSI Mark of Trust, reassuring your customers and suppliers that your skills have been validated. You can achieve Practitioner or Professional status by successfully completing courses and their exams.
