1.5 ConEd Learning hours

This session is also offered Friday, May 9, 2014 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM

Course Outline

This course will focus on utilizing BIM to enhance conceptual design by exploring new possibilities which this mode of delivery brings to architects.  As a profession, we're faced with a struggle between "how we worked" and the "new technologies" which by their essence are reshaping the foundation of our established delivery practices.  BIM should be seen as an instrument enhancing the architect's ability to function as a conductor in the realm of design.  BIM provides various avenues enabling the architect to craft their designs complementing conceptual development and enriching a project's development.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand fundamentally what Building Information Modelling is, how it's scalable, and its impact on the architect;
  2. Understand how to harness BIM to complement the development of an architectural concept
  3. Understand strategies focusing on first-time BIM deployment.
  4. Understand how a BIM-based conceptual design can flow through the rest of the design phases to project completion.
