BEST and Project Five had previously collaborated in late 2014, when they teamed up for BIM training events across Wales. The seminars were a resounding success, and delegates in Bangor provided comment on their experience:
“The material presented provided a good insight into how BIM will work at both organisational and project level. The course provided a broad explanation of the BIM process and clearly identified the different stakeholders involved to successfully implement BIM on our projects.”
Those in attendance were described as having a “real appetite” for getting to grips with the BIM basics, and it seems Project Five shared that same hunger for success. Due to how well the partnership progressed, BEST have announced that the consultants are to provide additional accredited BIM training in Wales throughout 2015.
“We are excited to not only run a second round of introductory courses, but we are also proud to announce the launch of a new cohort of courses which go beyond mere high level awareness raising,” said Project Five’s Associate Director, Andy Ainsworth. “The industry is fast moving towards a stage where BIM is becoming the norm and we at Project Five are proud to be aiding the industry in taking these next steps on their BIM journey.”
The next duo of one-day courses to commence have been announced, and are free to attend, with funding coming from the European Social Fund via the Welsh Government. Check out the dates for the ‘Unlocking the Potential of BIM in Wales‘ workshops below.
• 25th February – Conwy
• 3rd March – Caerphilly
The training provided at the courses enables delegates to gain a CQFW accredited certification and two credits on behalf of the awarding body, Cardiff University. Residents of Wales are eligible to take part, with a specific focus on those living or working within the 15 Local Authority convergence areas.
