In this introductory module, you’ll learn both how the course is structured and how to get the most out of this extensive program.
Module 2 will give you a better understanding of BIM methodology and how the entire AEC industry benefits from implementing it.
Here, I focus on the various roles and responsibilities of a BIM Coordinator. This can vary depending on the company you work for and the type of projects you work on.
In Module 4, we consider what software tools a BIM Coordinator uses in different phases of a construction project. We’ll also choose a set of software that will be used further in the course.
After this module, you will know which file formats are commonly used in the industry. We will look both at proprietary as well as open BIM formats.
In Module 6, we get to work on our course project. You will receive the BIM requirements from a fictitious client. We will then discuss these requirements in detail, so you know what they mean for us as BIM Coordinators.
Good planning and strategy are key to effective BIM Coordination. In this module, you will learn about the components of such a strategy and plan coordination activities.
A BIM Coordinator has a lot to do at the start of a project. Setting up the folder structure, creating project templates, and managing model coordinates - I will show you how to do all these tasks effectively.
In this module, we will start our coordination process. First I’ll show you how to properly export IFC from Revit. This is essential for people who want to work with the openBIM methodology. Then we will use the exported IFC files to learn how to work with Solibri. By the end of this module, you’ll have all the knowledge you need to handle Solibri like a pro!
In Module 10, we dig deeper into the heart of the Solibri checking system and learn how to use rules. We will create several rulesets and rules that check model data and geometry in relation to BEP requirements from module 6.
Now that we have proper rules in place, we can run internal and multidisciplinary coordination. I will share my tips and tricks and teach you how to check models in the most effective way.
After this module, you will know how to successfully use the BIM Collaboration Format and BCF Connector to handle BIM coordination issues using the BIMCollab platform.
In this module, we will start working with coordination workflow number 2. This time I will teach you how to effectively use another model checking software - Navisworks.
We will now use Navisworks to run both internal and interdisciplinary model checks. I will show you the best ways to work with Clash Detective, Search Sets, and many other Navisworks tools.
Navisworks and BIM Track are best friends when it comes to managing coordination issues. After this module, you’ll know how to effectively handle issues using both programs.
In this module, we will focus on coordination meetings. What are they, how to run them effectively, and how to avoid making common mistakes.
In the final module, I will share advice about BIM Coordination. We’ll summarize the entire course and I’ll give a few suggestions about the next steps you can take on your journey to become a BIM Coordinator.
