What is BIM Camp
BIM Camp is a one-day event where architects and landscape architects learn the skills they need to successfully implement Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows into their practices. They will also learn how IFC-based standards benefit design teams, create sustainable and high-performing designs, and collaborate through Open BIM.
Why You Should Attend
Professionals in the AEC space are well aware of the BIM movement in their industry. Yet the transition to BIM is not easy and obvious. Many report that the transition to BIM is challenging and fraught with unforeseen conditions (see: “Architosh announces 2010 BIM Survey Report,” Architosh, 3 Mar 2010). Yet the industry is aggressively moving to BIM workflows despite these challenges because the benefits are overwhelming.
With this event participants can learn how to implement BIM successfully. BIM Camp will teach the skills architects need to thrive in this new BIM world. BIM Camp attendees also receive a BIM Survival Kit, loaded with presentation materials and other resources. Plus you can earn up to 4 AIA Continuing Education credits.
