BIM Foundations training offers an introduction into the principles, methodology and practical application of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the construction industry. The course aims to provide individuals and companies with the knowledge and understanding to work within the parameters of Building Information Modelling to demonstrate your BIM capabilities on public sector funded construction projects. We can help you to unlock your BIM potential and comply with Government requirements for BIM Level 2.


Who should attend?

BIM Foundations training is open to anyone in the construction industry who is involved in the planning, construction and operation of a built asset. Following the Government mandate in 2016, BIM and the experience of building and sharing information digitally is vital to future-proof your business.

BIM Foundations training is applicable to contractors, subcontractors, architects, building owners, installers, planners and anyone involved throughout the construction supply chain.

The BIM mandate

There are a number of defined BIM levels, from BIM Level 0 to BIM Level 3. The UK Government stipulated in 2016 that any built asset funded by the public sector should be compliant to BIM Level 2. BIM Foundations offers an understanding of BIM Level 2 and how it determines the way in which project data is produced and shared to gain efficiencies.

From 4 April 2016, the mandate came into effect so it is vital to ensure your workforce attains the required level of BIM competence. BIM is also expected to gain more resonance in the private sector over the coming years.


Course Content

BIM Foundations is a one-day course with five modules which introduce the concept of BIM and then provide guidance on its application for the construction industry:

  • Background and context
  • BIM in the UK and BIM globally
  • Next steps for your business
  • Approaching BIM in business
  • How to become certified for BIM

We have also launched a BIM Certification Scheme to enable companies or individuals to achieve BIM Certification and project manage an asset in line with PAS 1192-2. Please see our website for further details.
