Unit 4: BIM Adoption, Implementation and ROI

Whether you are a prime contractor using BIM across an entire project or a subcontractor impacted by a specific BIM implementation, this emerging practice requires new mindsets  and technological know-how in order to achieve significant improvements in efficiency and cost control. Associated General Contractors of America’s (AGC) BIM Education Program - developed in conjunction with leading BIM practitioners, technology firms and educators - is designed to prepare construction professionals at all experience levels to successfully implement BIM on a construction project. Each BIM Education Program unit provides a full day of training for a total of 32 hours. The Certificate of Management - Building Information Modeling (CM-BIM) is the construction industry’s only credential that teaches the practical application of the BIM process for commercial construction firms.

This final unit describes how to establish and execute the BIM process, facilitate its adoption, and achieve integration on a single project and on multiple projects simultaneously. Participants will review several real world case studies to analyze the costs, benefits and impacts of each decision made while experiencing how BIM breaks down the isolation found in organizational silos. While it may appear at times that BIM is a technology-led movement, the reality – and AGC’s BIM Education Program - speaks to a results-driven shift with real change happening within the construction industry.
