BIM for Engineers

BIM has been called many things: a paradigm shift, a disruptive innovation, and a new market segment. The fundamental similarity in all of these classifications is that BIM has changed the way the construction industry does business. These changes can be felt in the largest of scopes to the most granular of activities. In BIM 130 – BIM for MEP Engineers, we stated that most BIM projects follow the same paths, while at the same time each BIM project tends to be unique within that path. In this course, we will focus on how BIM as a paradigm shift has impacted MEP Engineering firms.

By the end of this course, you will be able to identify owner types with whom the engineer can develop Collaborative BIM relationships, identify how the integration of calculations can complicate the use of design intent models as reusable Record Models, describe an engineer’s developing relationship with subcontractors during Design Assist, and define Fabrication Level Modeling as well as how it is different than design intent modeling.
