At the end of this unit, you will be expected to demonstrate the use of project collaboration using appropriate software and data structures.
Unit 4 – BIM level 3 and Beyond
This Unit will define responsibilities and ownership and build your understanding of Construction Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie) and its integral part in facility and life-cycle management. It will also cover how BIM will play a part in the smart cities of the future. You will be expected to evaluate where BIM level 3 sits within your sector and what the key usable data would be to facilitate future smart infrastructure.
