Building Information Modelling (BIM) is changing the way the construction industry worldwide does business. In the UK we are fortunate to have had the ‘push’ of the Government’s 2016 BIM Mandate, the accompanying standards, and the immense amount of information and support generated by the BIM Task Group and other organisations.

In the most recent NBS BIM Survey, 54% of respondents claimed to be ‘aware of and currently using BIM’. But meeting the ‘2016 mandate’ is not just about software capabilities, it is about ‘fully collaborative BIM’ in our projects and this involves changing the way we work.

How is the Construction Industry going to absorb these changes and acquire these new skills? Can we experience working in ‘fully collaborative BIM’ in a safe training environment or must we adopt a trial and error approach and learn on the job, with all the risks and potential for costly mistakes that this entails?
Virtual Project is designed to meet that very need. It is an intensive 3-day course designed to allow participants to experience BIM in a real-time collaborative environment and to explore the Level 2 BIM project process with none of the risks or costs that arise on a real project.

Using the most up-to-date and popular BIM software, and with the support of experienced trainers and excellent training materials, the course offers a real opportunity to experience multi-disciplinary project working in a common data environment: the very essence of Level 2 BIM.

Virtual Project follows a process, mirroring the information delivery plan outlined in the new RIBA stages of work, the Digital Plan of Works (DPOW) and is aligned to international standards, e.g. ISO19650-1 (BS1192:2007) and ISO 19650-2 (PAS1192-2).
