Three steps to getting yourself BIM ready

Professionals in the Australian construction, engineering, architecture, asset management and property development sectors must get ready for greater levels of building information modelling (BIM) adoption. This methodology - already seeing widespread adoption across the Asia-Pacific region - delivers significant benefits across the design, construction and management stages of an asset's lifecycle.

With Redstack's BIM Management Training course, industry leaders can upskill in this innovative method and gain a better understanding of how it is transforming and benefiting the Australian professional landscape. The course delves into advanced knowledge that managers need in order to deliver on BIM objectives within their projects.

BIM training is the obvious way of getting yourself BIM ready, but there are many other things you can be doing to get the most out of any BIM training course. While there are no prerequisites to the Redstack BIM Management Course, a small amount of preparation can go a long way. Here are three great ways to prepare your organisation and benefit from BIM.

1. Find the right course

Many courses that claim to provide BIM training are heavily focused on modelling software, not the skills and knowledge necessary to lead a BIM project. If you are looking to understand the fundamentals and how to implement the methodology as a manager, a course that focuses on software is likely not the right fit.

At Redstack, we consider BIM management practices and BIM 3D modelling distinct areas of specialisation - a belief reflected in our training courses. Make sure you are aware of this when selecting a BIM training course.

2. Brush up on BIM basics

Training sessions are not just a great opportunity to gain new information; they can also help clear up any confusion you have. As such, it's helpful to have a clear understanding of what you do and don't know about BIM.

This will prepare you to ask questions about concepts that you have some difficulty with. It will also help you get more out of the training by reinforcing some of the BIM fundamentals.

Redstack's range of free BIM resources can help you get started on your BIM journey. If you're not sure where to start, check out our guide to common BIM acronyms.

3. Know your BIM needs

Success in BIM is largely related to getting the right buy-in, so attendees will need to go on and make the business case for BIM to other team members. Knowing your own project needs in regard to BIM will ensure you get the knowledge and information you need to make your projects excel.

Familiarising yourself with the course contents is a key step in getting the most out of training. It will help you identify which sections will be most relevant to your current and future projects.

BIM training can also be a great asset in upskilling. In fact, our course is endorsed by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), and members of the organisation may be eligible for a rebate.
