New Building Modelling Software Set To Revolutionise Design And Construction Industry

Building Information Modelling (BIM) training providers can expect to see a flurry of activity in the wake of the recent UK Government announcement that by 2016, government construction projects of all sizes must be undertaken using the dynamic building modelling software.

BIM models are developed to refine all aspects of the building design process, concerned not only with the initial design but also with the physical and functional details of its components, overall construction and ongoing maintenance requirements. The transition from Computer Aided Development (CAD) to BIM is expected to revolutionise the entire design process. The database allows for much more effective sharing of information and offers an integrated platform for project teams to share models and collaborate on ideas.

Francis Maude, Minister for the Cabinet Office says “This Government’s four year strategy for BIM implementation will change the dynamics and behaviours of the construction supply chain, unlocking new, more efficient and collaborative ways of working.”

The requirement will impact businesses of all sizes, from small independent suppliers to multimillion pound industrial contractors. The benefits of the new technology are immense and it is hoped that BIM will eventually emerge as an industry standard. Any business that does not take BIM on-board runs the risk of losing contracts and falling behind its competitors.

BIM is already being utilised by a number of forward thinking firms who have embraced the new technology and the opportunities it holds for the building design industry.

Academy Class offers a range of BIM training courses from multinational American software corporation, Autodesk. These include AutoCAD, 3DS Max and Revit, all of which  allow for the extraction of different views and angles from building models in order to aid drawing production and other design related uses. Each course runs for five days and includes the accredited Autodesk AutoCAD Certified User exam.

Students also have the option of taking the Autodesk Professional exams for each application at an additional fee. The professional exams can be considered as a career investment that demonstrates industry expertise and provides future career enhancing opportunities.

Mark Young , Director of Academy Class says “The ability to accurately visualise a project in this way has been invaluable to designers for several decades now. With the AutoDesk Creative License package you’ll learn exactly why this is, and how to use the essential features of both AutoCAD, 3DS Max and Revit. Afterwards, you’ll be able to confidently design and create 3D animations using all of these applications.”

The three day Autodesk Navisworks Yellow Belt 101 training course is also highly beneficial, allowing students to create 3D models and unite these withBIM data in order to gain thorough understanding and control over the design process.

BIM is without a doubt the future of the architecture, engineering and construction industries. The technology is set to revolutionise the entire building design process and is hugely beneficial to any industry professional determined to perform at their best.
