Learning outcomesOn successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Apply knowledge of the principles and practices of construction modelling and understand the cooperation and organisation roles within a BIM project team;
2. Construct models and understand procurement processes to achieve successful outcomes;
3. Assess how the principles of BIM-modelling are applied to a construction project on the basis of architectural and engineering drawings, cost estimates and construction program based on the information output from a BIM-model; and
4. Evaluate the application of BIM models to construction and design case studies.
