Free CPD: A guide to Level 2 BIM

1 Comment

As the UK passes a notable milestone on the road towards BIM, John Adams, industry strategy manager at Autodesk, has summarised the government’s Level 2 BIM mandate in a CPD created for Construction Manager.

The CPD, which is available for free in CM’s CPD portal explores the pillars of BIM and explains what companies need to do to comply with BIM Level 2.

Along with summarising the eight pillars – PAS 1192-2, PAS 1192-3, BS 1192-4, PAS 1192-5, the CIC BIM Protocol, Government Soft Landings, the Digital Plan of Works (DPoW) and the Uniclass classification system – the CPD looks in depth at COBie and Common Data Environments.

The CPD is an ideal resource for anyone wanting to gain a basic understanding of BIM, how to use it and the impact that it will have, as well as being a perfect refresher course for those already using BIM.

The CPD portal is updated weekly and includes several other CPDs related to BIM, including:

  • BIM – What’s it like in Practice?
  • BIM: from virtual to reality
  • BIM, an overview from Peter Hansford
  • Exploiting Digital Technologies
  • Integrating BIM into the Project Schedule
  • Implementation of Government Soft Landings
