BIM 101 - An Introduction to BIM Level 2 and Digital Engineering

'BIM 101' is a beginners’ course aimed at ALL novices to the world of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the UK with no, or very little, technical / IT or Information Management (IM) background.You will will be introduced to the requirements for BIM Level 2 and the new International BIM Standard ISO 19650.

This course is intended as an introduction to the International BIM Standard ISO 19650, BIM Level 2 and the UK's BIM Mandate which underpins this. If you simply want to get an introduction in plain English, with no jargon – this is the course for you. There is nothing assumed about your background in technology / CAD or ‘BIM’. We start from basic principles for BIM Level 2.

Join us to start your journey into the understanding and implementation of the wider sense of BIM, in a safe environment. You will be able to ask anything you like about BIM in the UK, Digital Built Britain and where things are going. There are no silly questions.

This course is intentionally kept to a small group for the best learning outcomes. We encourage group interaction, but don’t force anything – you can come and simply listen if you want! The Tutor will be available for follow-up calls - up to 4 weeks after the course - for any extra questions..

As with all our courses, on this course the word ‘BIM’ is used in the widest sense of the meaning - we mean 'BIM' as in the UK’s 'BIM Level 2' mandate, with robust information management, processes and change management. This course is NOT about 3D/4D CAD modelling, nor specific technologies.

  • Exclusive Session: Places are limited to ensure best learning outcomes with a small group.

  • Lunch included: This course includes lunch and tea & coffee throughout the day.

  • Tutor: The Tutor is a very experienced geospatial information management and digital transformation specialist with almost 20 years' experience of strategic definition, Project Management & hands-on solutions implementation, particularly within the Built Environment and Natural Environment sectors.

    His background is in mapping, Geospatial solutions and GIS, but now consults on Information Management (IM) in the widest context. Most often Steven works with Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Owner Operator (AECOO) clients - such as property developers, Rail and Utilities companies.

Testimonial for our training:

"...The course was lively and engaging and I came away with exactly what I had hoped for: a clear understanding of what BIM is... resources to further my knowledge and also some ideas of how I can develop my technical skills to be better prepared for future work.

It was a theory based course and would give other technically minded people the context they might not necessarily have but would definitely benefit from."
