Project Five Academy


Stage 1: BIM Fundamentals - 1 day course


Andy Ainsworth




The aim of BIM Fundamentals is to ensure that learners achieve a basic understanding of Building Information Modelling, how it has been defined by the UK Government for Level 2 maturity, the guidance and standards that have been developed to guide the implementation of BIM and the benefits of using BIM on construction projects.

Learners will gain knowledge of how clients are expected to set their requirements for BIM during project delivery, the procurement requirements for BIM and how the supply chain is expected to respond, and the processes for information management and delivery set out in the standards for BIM. BIM Fundamentals also ensures learners understand the principles of collaborative working to support BIM and how the UK construction sector is responding to the challenge of adopting BIM

your course of study

By focusing on the fundamental requirements put in place in the government’s framework for BIM, the course provides an excellent grounding for further development. The course is structured around the following themes:

the key drivers for BIM:

  • Why government, and increasingly the private sector, see BIM as a key component of greater efficiency in project delivery.
  • The benefits of adopting BIM and the potential efficiency improvements BIM can support.

BIM standards and guidance:

  • The structure and purpose of key guidance documents, including the CIC BIM Protocol, Employer’s Information Requirements, PAS 1192-2 and COBie.
  • The way in which these standards are shaping the procurement process for BIM projects.
  • How this guidance shapes project delivery through the adoption of new processes for information management.

the importance of collaboration:

  • The role of the Common Data Environment is supporting collaboration across project teams.
  • The fundamental building blocks and processes for collaborative working on projects.

where are we now?

  • How the industry is responding to the adoption of BIM and the challenges and opportunities identified.
  • What does the future look like for BIM?
