This class is a high-level overview of what Building Information Modeling (BIM) and virtual design and construction (VDC) are and how they work in the construction process. We will talk about BIM for estimating, BIM for coordination, BIM for marketing and logistics, and BIM and site work. We will also discuss laser scanning, 4D simulations, as-builts, and some future capabilities.


  • Understand what BIM and VDC are in construction
  • Discover BIM and estimating
  • Understand how BIM is utilized after design for clash detection and simulations
  • Understand BIM-project closeout and future of the model with the owner
