Building Information Management (BIM)

Building Information Management (BIM) involves the use of information-rich 3D models and their data collaboratively, improving the quality and exchange of information throughout the design, construction, and post-construction phases. In response to the successful use of UK and International BIM standards, an increasing number of companies in both public and private sectors are adopting the BIM process. BRE Academy’s ISO 19650 training programme has been developed and is delivered by BRE’s technical experts, who are active in standards committees and have a wealth of practical experience.
