The aim of this short course is to provide students with the background knowledge and understanding of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the context of the construction industry. Students will be introduced to the drivers and benefits associated with BIM, as well as the terminology which associated with BIM. This short course will also support students in setting up and assessing the accuracy of control points. From these or any other control points students will be able to complete a topographic survey or set out a structure. The students will also be able analyse errors in Setting-out and surveying prior to transferring data into BIM
Students will require a basic knowledge of surveying and have experience of 2D & 3D CAD/Modelling, through the achievement of a Level 2 construction qualification.
