The B1M are looking for Building Information Modelling-experienced companies to take part in their new educational initiative that enables students to become enriched in BIM.

B1M University allows architecture, engineering and construction students to access a rich video resource comprising of various masterclasses. On the flip side, firms who have utilised Building Information Modelling can also receive the spotlight to showcase themselves as a company that are firmly committed to the future of the industry.

Premier business names in the industry send their most experienced BIM professionals to one of B1M University’s host education establishments and discuss various topics such as BIM for Facilities Management and Tendering in a BIM Environment. The B1M have stated that these workshops are in no way “sales pitches”, and the classes “are filmed by The B1M and disseminated to AEC students at the Partner Universities by email and our [The B1M] website”.

Each student watching the video collection will gain the perfect supplement that goes hand-in-hand with courses available at universities and is not part of a teaching programme itself. Students will get to access all of the HD video content whenever they want to view it, a fantastic source of knowledge that will only make he or she more knowledgeable and employable. The best part? Access to the video archive is entirely free and attendance to the recorded events is, you guessed it, free!

Students interested in attending the first masterclass held at the University of Westminster on October 23rd, 2014 can apply now to book their place in the audience.

Around 100 places have already been snapped up for the event, yet 40 additional spots have been opened to deal with the high demand for tickets, as announced on The B1M’s official Twitter account.
