The BIM for Owners & Developers Global Executive Program provides key decision-making skills to effectively implement BIM methodology in business organizations, public administrations, and construction projects in various disciplines of the AECO industry. Our professors from all over the world are influential thought leaders in BIM, who will guide you through the program to ensure that you will master BIM project management in real life case studies and all the necessary competences.
Results/Why choose this program?
The aim of the BIM for Owners & Developers Global Executive Program is to demonstrate how to use BIM management tools to develop strategies, execute projects, improve outcomes and save money.
After you complete this program, you will have increased transparency, within a more integrated design and construction process, which will lead to a higher quality building, reduced costs and shorter time frames.
BIM for Owners and Developers helps to execute every project faster, easier and more cost-effectively. New tools and processes help the owner and developer become successful by creating streamlined project delivery. BIM a holistic process, touching every phase of a construction project and all the parties involved, from planning to completion and commissioning to handover.
This executive program focuses on the challenges and opportunities that BIM offers to Owners and Developers.
The first module of the program focuses on theory delivered by the most respected professionals and researchers. The second module is all about real life case studies, explained in-person by their main characters.
All of the concepts from the first module are applied in the second module, to demonstrate the benefits of different types of projects in different situations on various continents. Finally, during the third module, participants create their own case studies.
These three modules will be held online. At the completion of the program, a meeting will be held which will provide you with the perfect opportunity to meet with the directors, advisory board member, professors and other participants of the program in person.
The first meeting is going to be held at the European BIM Summit next May, 2017, in Barcelona (organized by buildingSMART, the Association of Building Engineers of Barcelona and BIM Academy). The second edition of the course will take place during the celebration of BIM World in Munich next October, 2017. Each BIM for Owners and Developers meeting is open to all participants and guest board members.
FIRST MODULE: BIM FACILITY MANAGEMENT - 10 OWNER'S BIM DIMENSIONS
This 40-hour module is divided into ten BIM Dimensions for owners and developers. It is a structured way to present the full potential of this technology and tooling process.
These topics are covered in ten Units:
1. INTRODUCTION TO BIM
2. BIM IMPLEMENTATION
3. THE 3D MODEL
4. VIRTUAL PLANNING
6. ENERGY MODEL
7. MODEL FOR MAINTENANCE
8. BIM FOR HEALTH AND SAFETY
9. LEAN CONSTRUCTION
10. INDUSTRIALISED CONSTRUCTION
SECOND MODULE: 4 CASE STUDIES
This is a 40-hour module that presents four case studies. We have benchmarked the best case study methodologies used in business schools (such as Harvard, Aalborg University, and IESE) and we translated them for the construction sector.
We have asked 50 professionals and experts to create their own case studies, based on their own experiences. Each one presents the conceptual framework of a company or a project and the solution generated to solve it. Case studies cover all building fields and are divided into two sectors, buildings and infrastructures.
You will be able to choose any case study, based on your professional interests.
THIRD MODULE: WORK IN YOUR OWN PROJECT - CREATE YOUR BIP OR BEP
After the first theory module, where ten BIM Dimensions are dissected, and the second practical module, applying concepts to real case studies, it is time for you to create your own case study and simulate the decision-making process.
This last 40-hour module is designed to help you to decide on your own needs while working with a personal advisor. There are two possibilities: to create a BIP or to create a BEP.
BIP is the set of specific actions necessary to successfully implement BIM both in public and private companies. We will help you to set your own BIP action plan for your organization.
BEP is the acronym for BIM Execution Plan, and it is the main protocol document for a BIM project. BEP can be used to create a financial proposal for the delivery of a building or infrastructure with all the necessary documentation. You can choose to execute this plan with one of your own existing projects.
