Module 1 A - Introduction to BIM
Recently, a quiet revolution has been taking place which will fundamentally change the very fabric of the audiovisual design and integration business. This revolution is the increased utilization of Building Information Modeling (BIM). BIM is described as a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. As such it serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle from inception onward
Module 1 B - Importance of BIM
• Buildings consume huge proportions of our scarce resources. Resource allocation and reduction are major drivers toward BIM implementation, whether it be using renewable or recycled materials or reducing energy consumption. Stakeholders hope that BIM will be key in reducing construction resource consumption.
• The bid process and resultant change orders have become the bane of many construction projects. The major culprit here is probably the design-bid-build paradigm, in which each bidder should complete a rough design in order to provide accurate bids. The alternative to the design-bid-build and design-build paradigms is Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) — where all stakeholders share in the risk of the design and build process, and share in the rewards of productivity increases. IPD works well if there is an accurate BIM within which the project is designed.

Module 2 A - Why are Traditional 2D or 3D CAD Drawings Insufficient?
Current building practice relies upon drawings. Building designs are communicated through dozens or even hundreds of separate, often inconsistent documents. However, CAD documents usually exclude the very information necessary for effective design evaluation and construction, such as bid and contract documents, Bills of Materials (BOMs), timelines, specifications, price lists, installation and maintenance guides, cable lists and labels. BIM is more than drawings — it is a data repository for building design, construction and maintenance information combined in one convenient model to share with all the stakeholders. As these stakeholders increase their commitment to project success using BIM, they should also profit from BIM combined with IPD.
Module 2 B - The Anticipated Result of BIM is Consistent Savings in Building Life Cycle
It is no longer a question of whether BIM will impact our industry — it has and it will. In considering options for corporate strategy, keep in mind the desired results of BIM. While only a very small portion of facility life-cycle costs occur during design and construction, those are the phases where our decisions have the greatest impact. Most of the costs associated with a facility throughout its lifecycle accrue during a facility’s operations and sustainment.
