Building Information Modelling centre of excellence BIM Academy have announced a two-day workshop dedicated to BIM for Landscape Architecture.

The Landscape sector is often overlooked when it comes to BIM, with many in the sector still researching how BIM can aid their business practice as opposed to adopting the technological process. The dual-day training from BIM Academy could perhaps speed up your architecture firm’s foray into BIM.

According to the BIM Academy’s website, the “innovative and bespoke” course “allows delegates to experience BIM through workshops, demonstrations and hands on opportunities” whilst utilising Autodesk Revit and Keysoft KeySCAPE software platforms.

BIM Academy also note that “there appears to be no single tool which is 100% effective in enabling a landscape consultant to produce an information model” yet they believe that their unique combination of tools and training will ease the “ever increasing pressure” on landscape professionals to become skilled in a BIM workflow.

Julia Wesenlund, Landscape Architect at TGP Landscape North Ltd has taken a similar course ran by BIM Academy and she believes the new course will be of major benefit to those who take part: “This has been an extremely useful fast track introduction to BIM and collaborative working. I’ll be taking a lot away from this experience and thinking about how BIM can fit into our work as Landscape Architects.”

The two-day course is priced at £695 (+vat) per person. For more information on how to apply, click here.
