The ‘I’ in BIM: How Does BIM Work?

The ‘I’ in BIM
The ‘I’ in BIM workshop and debate series is constructed to give a holistic explanation of BIM in its current state as an industry game-changer. Mike Olive has a specialist interest in systems efficiency and applies this expertise to his development of BIM applications. The three sessions that he leads here will approach the subject from varied high level and applied viewpoints.

  • How does BIM/ifc work
  • BIM making the Business Case
  • Application of BIM as a business and environmental sustainability toolset
  • 1. How does BIM work?*
    In this first session, Mike Olive lays the foundation for understanding BIM at a fundamental level. He will address questions about the nature of BIM as a working tool for the industry and deconstruct the core principles that make up a BIM workflow.
