Malachy’s paper discusses the new roles that have emerged and are developing e.g. BIM Technician, BIM Coordinator and BIM Manager. However, there is confusion as to the meaning and interpretation of these job titles.
This paper sets out to explore the following questions:
With a design and construction industry that is made up of traditional domain specific professionals where does industry go to find these “BIM” specific professionals?
Do 3rd level education providers create new courses to fill this need, or is there a design and construction course that has already many of the competencies required to fulfil the role?
The CitA BIM Gathering 2015 took place on 12th and 13th November. The conference had 38 papers which were reviewed by CitA’s Scientific Committee, comprising of experienced academics and researchers. The quality of the research was high. BIMIreland.ie will have more news on the research presented in future posts.
