BIM Dimensions! Heard about 2D and 3D? What about 4,5,6 or even 7D? How does this relate with BIM Levels? How does it benefit professionals? Let’s find out!

If you study or work in the AEC Industry, you must have heard about BIM and BIM levels by now. You probably have been asked to achieve BIM Stage 2. Interlinked with BIM levels there is another aspect of BIM usually called BIM Dimensions.

This short awareness training will help you understand: How many are there. What they are about. How they apply to and can be an integral part of your workflow. How and why they encompass different aspects of the construction supply chain and built asset/project lifecycle.

In addition, you will also start to learn and appreciate how the use of these BIM Dimensions can bring advantages to your workflow, to your business and enable a more (energy) efficient and sustainable built environment. Full use of BIM dimensions is a benefit of BIM to the AEC Industry and they can be enabling tools to help the AEC industry reduce it waste and move towards a more energy efficient output, to help tackle climate change. 

For those who already know about BIM Dimensions, this offers a change to test, prove and record your knowledge. ARISE is also about recognising pre acquired knowledge.
