Skip to 0 minutes and 8 seconds Let’s have a look at what we’ve covered in this short course. We’ve explored underlying BIM concepts, and what’s driving adoption around the world. We’ve also found out that while different professions use BIM in different ways, it’s becoming increasingly essential means of communication. Remember that BIM is a significant part of the construction methodology and there are strong indicators that will enter regulatory framework in the near future. This is the end of the free and open part of our course. For those who are taking the full online MSc in Construction Management with BIM, next week we start to explore BIM in greater depth. As part of the course, we will support learners towards gaining the professional BRE BIM approved graduate qualification.
