BIM is driving the commercial construction industry awayfrom a 2D-based process toward a model-based process that encourages across the-board collaboration from owners, designers, general contractors and all the specialty contractors with the goal of delivering safer, more productive projects on time and within budget with a final building that offers a sustainable environment for its users.The Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America’s 30,000 members nationwide are dedicated to advancing the ever-changing agenda of commercial construction contractors, improving jobsite safety, expanding the use of cuttingedgetechnologies and techniques and strengthening the dialogue between contractors and owners. All these goals are furthered by AGC’s BIM Education Program (BIM EP) and the corresponding Certificate of Management — BuildingInformation Modeling (CM-BIM) credential. An Introduction to Building Information Modeling is the first of four courses that comprise AGC’s BIM EP. This full-day, facilitator-led course provides participants a complete overview of BIM concepts, terminology and practice as well as an introduction to important uses and concepts to help them understand how BIM is changing the construction process.
