Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that goes far beyond switching to new software, it requires changes to traditional phases and more data sharing than is common during the design and construction stages. Electrical contractors, manufacturers, suppliers and distributors are often short-changed during the MEP coordination process due to their under-utilization of technology, such as BIM, which can be used to assist them in performing pre-planning and pre-fabrication. This course focuses on what electrical contractors need to know about BIM and the process of generating and managing building data during its lifecycle. This program is based on the research report Building Information Modeling for Electrical Contractors: Current Practice and Recommendations funded by ELECTRI International.

Following this course, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the design and construction stages of a project when using BIM
  • Explain how to use the BIM process for pre-planning and pre-fabricating
  • Discuss design and clash detection software
  • Describe the potential cost and time savings with BIM
  • Discuss the current status of BIM in the electrical contracting industry
PLEASE REGISTER SOON AS ONLY 30 SPOTS ARE AVAILABLE.
Initial registration will be limited to four (4) individuals per company. However, if openings remain available closer to the seminar date, additional registrants per company will be considered.
