You will be provided source Revit files. You will be provided videos which will guide you through the learning process. There will be quizzes relating to your project as well as to your reading assignments. There will be discussion forums in which you will be participating. There will be regular progress submissions of the work you completed and there will also be 1:1 time with your instructor.


Learning Objectives

  • Explore BIM Project Management and discuss its uses and concepts.
  • Implement workflow procedures to efficiently use BIM.
  • Perform interference checks/clash coordination to highlight the benefits of BIM.
  • Participate in the use of work-sharing and the project management principles when working on a large project documents.

Intended Audience

The course is primarily designed for architects, interior designers, engineers, and others involved in the construction industry looking for an overview of building information modeling (BIM) project management using Revit Architecture.


Grading

Class participants will receive a grade based on their competency proven in the assessments (quizzes and tests) and their participation in the discussion forums.

Class grades will be determined by the total number of points achieved in the following categories:

Reading Assessments 20%
Discussion Forums 10%
Midterm 20%
Final 50%

Final grades are determined using the following scale:
