BIM Management at Barcelona

On March 25th 2014, the second edition of the BIM MANAGEMENT training course was delivered as a part of the AEDIP LONGLIFE PROGRAMME. “The first edition was a success regarding the objectives scope. The Barcelona edition was better because it collected the lesson learnt from the first edition delivered on 2013. We have verified that BIM Management is a key competence for the “project manager” in the real state industry”.


Why to deliver a training course for Project managers based on BIM?

We found five reasons, as follows:

1)    A group of firms have been using BIM. Other companies are in the process of analyzing the impact. We found that other professionals do not believe in BIM. The most mature organizations have assumed the effects of BIM in process management. But the global situation is not steady.

2)    BIM is not software. BIM is a process through you is representing a building based on data. The process computerization through a software package is what modifies completely the traditional project rules and its construction.

3)    On 2013 two emblematic companies from Madrid considered as leaders in the Construction Industry incorporated BIM. The third project is meaningful because “Infraestructures de Catalunya”, public firm and a pioneer in Project management, has valued in their technical offer that one of their projects to be modeled using BIM. The immediate effect of not understanding enough BIM might mean the loss of business opportunities and the loss of business competitiveness in a short term.
