Understanding Level 2 BIM


"Excellent course, covered a wide range of issues and helped me realise requirements for an upcoming project" Paul Bond, Hampshire Hospitals NHS FT

"Good informative course which has helped me broaden my understanding of the entire BIM infrastructure" Gareth Price, O'Brien Contractors Ltd

BSRIA’s Understanding Level 2 BIM course, aimed at people who are new to BIM, provides a general awareness of what BIM is. It focuses on the Government’s BIM strategy for their projects and the 8 components of BIM Level 2. The course is split into four sessions – ‘Introduction to BIM’, ‘BIM Software’, ‘The BIM roadmap’ and ‘BIM documents and your next steps’.

The course aims to help delegates appreciate how BIM may affect what they do and is relevant to clients, designers, contractors, suppliers and FMs.

Please note that up until July 2015 this course was known as Introduction to BIM
