BIM

Building Information Modeling Committee

With the continued emphasis on the use of technology in the design and construction industry, the Building Information Modeling (BIM) Committee was formed to provide information and resources at workshops and special seminar classes to meet the needs of all AGC members with this new technology.

In addition to special workshops and seminars, the BIM Committee will offer the new Building Information Modeling Education Program developed by the AGC of America. This program, developed in conjunction with leading BIM practitioners, technology firms and educators, is designed to successfully educate construction professionals at all experience levels on a range of topics they would encounter implementing and using BIM.

The BIM Education program is comprised of four courses, administered at multiple levels and organized by degree of difficulty to provide in-depth training on BIM.

The components of this program are: 
  • BIM 101: An Introduction to Building Information Modeling
  • BIM Technology
  • BIM Contract Negotiation and Risk Allocation
  • BIM Process, Adoption and Integration
The BIM Education Program is designed as a progressive program with an increasing level of difficulty within the course. Together, these are designed to give the student a broad understanding of the new processes of BIM, a basic grasp of the technology as well as an overview of the legal and insurance issues relevant to BIM.

Certificate of Management - Building Information Modeling

The construction industry's first and only BIM Certificate Program that teaches the practical application of the Building Information Modeling process for commercial construction firms. 

Not just a tech certificate for BIM software and applications, AGC's Certificate of Management - Building Information Modeling (CM-BIM) program combines the latest information on BIM processes and technologies, step-by-step procedures for integrating BIM into the project delivery process, real-life studies of successful BIM implementation, and the practical issues all parties need to understand when utilizing BIM on a construction project.

Based on AGC's four-part BIM Education Program, AGC's CM-BIM requires the following courses:
  • Unit 1 - An Introduction to Building Information Modeling
  • Unit 2 - BIM Technology
  • Unit 3 - BIM Contract Negotiation and Risk Allocation
  • Unit 4 - BIM Process, Adoption and Integration
The highly interactive program provides more than 40 hours of instruction and training to get construction industry professionals at all levels ready to take advantage of the benefits of BIM.
