A whole new dimension

To keep up with the ever-changing tools of industry we often need a short sharp course to get us up to speed and on our way.

The launch of Central’s new Introduction to Building Information Modeling (BIM) short course illustrates the impact of addressing the very latest demand.

BIM is a way for generating and managing digital representations of buildings or facilities. It goes beyond planning and design and extends to the lifecycle of the building including cost management, construction management and facility operations to name just a few.

In essence, it extends beyond the three dimensions (length, width, height) and includes time (4D) and cost (5D).

The BIM short course is designed to prepare participants for introducing BIM into an architectural, engineering, construction or drafting office.

The first course ran over three days in July and August and is the first of its kind to be run in WA. It received universal praise from the participants for both the quality and relevance of the training.

The course was run by Central lecturer Martine Cason and featured guest presenters Alastair Brook and Michael Ruehr.

Alastair Brook is the Project BIM Manager for the $919 million Perth Stadium project and previously worked on the $1.2 billion Perth Children’s Hospital project.

Michael Ruehr has over 35 years experience across all facets of the building industry, which has taken him all over the world. He has the ability to break complex tasks into manageable chunks and has worked with BIM Management for more than 6 years.

The overwhelming endorsement of the BIM short course means that another has immediately been scheduled to run later this year.
