This course is designed to be an overview of BIM applications and functionality, particularly as it relates to the green building industry. It will begin by looking at the problems that BIM was developed to solve,and then move on to the uses and benefits that BIM can offer a project. In this course we will explore BIM’s applications to green building and see how the technology can be used in various project stages. We will look at the potential for reducing interdisciplinary clashes and the simplification of construction document production. We will also look at how BIM can be used to created LEED documentation.
