    Course Overview:

    Building Information Models (BIM) can be quite simple or very complex depending upon the intended use; the number of contributors and participants, types of technologies used and desired outcomes. Complexity may include such things as finding and procuring resources capable of creating BIM models; working with several stakeholders using a variety of software and hardware products; legal issues pertaining to ownership of intellectual properties rights, contracting methods and insurance; risks and rewards; leveraging BIM data for Commissioning and Facilities Operations.
