The definition of Building Information Modeling (or BIM in it's more commonly used acronym) is an intelligent digital 3D model-based process that gives architects, civil engineers and other and other construction professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure. Sometimes also (incorrectly) referred to as Building Information Management.
Our BIM Academy is a suite of more than fourteen, half-hour online training courses containing learning materials, interactive content as well as supporting material and tools to provide the learner with an exciting and radical departure from current learning material available on the market.
It is designed to deliver a flexible, plain language approach to understanding terminology, process, roles and accountabilities and most importantly the functional applications, opportunities and benefits to all project team members of an effective BIM strategy.
Who is it recommended for?
The BIM Academy is recommended for anyone already working or planning to tender and deliver projects in a BIM-enabled environment including project managers, contract managers, quantity surveyors, engineers, clients, consultants, planners, contractors and the supply chain members.
This Academy is suitable for those new to BIM as well as those with experience looking to enhance their existing level of knowledge and understanding.

What does the BIM Academy online training course cover?
The BIM Academy suite of courses covers the following:
- Why change is needed in the construction industry
- What we mean by BIM and some of the key terms and acronyms
- An introduction to the BIM levels 0 to 3
- Practical BIM applications and deliverables for project roles
- The processes that drive a BIM project
- Level of Detail and Level of Information (LOD & LOI)
- An introduction to the BIM roles and responsibilities
- BIM Level 2 requirements
- How BIM can be used for quantification
- A breakdown of some of the 1192 suite, including Document naming, Common data environment, Digital handover, Security and Health and safety.
What are the additional features in the BIM Academy?
Supplementing the eLearning we have two interactive tools:
- The BIM dictionary – an up-to-date, searchable Wikipedia style site deciphering all BIM related acronyms and terms.
- A BIM diagnostic assessment tool – an online strategic assessment of the current level of effectiveness of an organisation’s approach to BIM in support of successful project delivery. This enables a platform to be built for sustained improvement through the delivery of the required culture and process change ensuring improved project and business performance.
