BIM Professional Training

BIM is developing rapidly, and it is difficult to keep up with the advances in both technology and practice. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a collaborative contracting paradigm that has been developed and adopted within the three years since we completed the first edition. BIM tools are increasingly used to support sustainable design, construction, and operation.

Our motivation in preparing this course was to provide a thorough and consolidated reference to help students and practitioners in the construction industry learn about this exciting new approach, in a format independent of the commercial interests that guide vendors’ literature on the subject. There are many truths and myths in the generally accepted perceptions of the state of the art of BIM. We hope that The BIM Professional Course will help reinforce the truths, dispel the myths, and guide our readers to successful implementations.
