If the thought of Building Information Modeling (BIM) is keeping you up at night, you don’t have to worry. You’ve already taken the first step toward implementing a BIM workflow by using design software. The second step is attending BIM Camp, a seminar we're offering in cities across the United States over the next few months.
Designed to help those who are ready to take their designs to the next level but may be unsure of how to use BIM technology to its fullest potential, BIM Camps are intensive, four-hour programs that walk designers from simple sketch to a finished BIM model, all while they earn 3 AIA LUs and 1 HSW credit. Each BIM Camp is broken down into three sections that focus on aspects of a BIM workflow, which include:
Sketch to BIM: A Design Workflow Philosophy (1 AIA LU)
Based on a standing-room-only presentation at the 2015 AIA National Convention, Sketch to BIM examines how digital technologies impact design decisions and overcome the perceived separation between BIM and creativity.
Building Information Modeling as a Design Process: Part 1 (1 AIA HSW)
Explore the varied roles that architects assume and the ways design technologies affect how they engage with building owners and other professionals throughout the journey from inspiration to execution.
Building Information Modeling as a Design Process: Part 2 (2 AIA LUs)
The successful implementation of a BIM workflow is a matter of understanding some basic rules and principles behind the extraction of information. This session outlines the various tools available for BIM and leads you through an example workflow for the design, analysis, and documentation of your model.
Check out the cities BIM Camp will be traveling to in the next three months:
- October 6 at Boston Society of Architects in Boston, MA
- October 8 at AIA NY's Center for Architecture in New York, NY
- October 28 at AIA Chicago in Chicago, IL
- November 10 at AIA New Orleans in New Orleans, LA
- December 8 at AIA Los Angeles in Los Angeles, CA
- December 10 at AIA San Francisco in San Francisco, CA
Admission is only $25, with all proceeds going to the Vectorworks Design Scholarship, an international design competition that supports the next generation of creative visionaries. Save your seat today and start reimagining your workflows with BIM.
