Event description


  • Are you looking to sharpen your understanding of BIM and Digital Engineering?

  • Want to understand how Geospatial Professionals can add value to BIM?

  • Want to get more than training alone? With us you get a COMPLETE SYSTEM to embed your learnings.

Who is this for? This course is for existing Geospatial and Geomatics Professionals, such as CAD modellers, GIS, mapping, survey professionals, who wants to learn more about BIM and Digital Engineering.

Your experience level with wider BIM concepts: Novice (little experience) to Advanced beginner

Course Format: Online live Webinar with tutor. Interactive with questions and reminder assessment questions throughout. Digital training material available online after course plus follow-on calls after session (for 4 weeks, 1 per week) to help embed what has been learnt.

Not Technology / CAD focused: This is not a ‘3D CAD Modelling’ course. This course teaches the principals, concepts and business drivers behind BIM and where the opportunities are for geomatics and geospatial professionals. There is reference to the UK's BIM standards – however principals are universal.

Course Location: Online - interactive with live Tutor-led presentation with a Q&A (not recorded content), via GoToWebinar. Follow-up sessions also online.

Exclusive Session: Places are limited to ensure best learning outcomes with a small group.

Course Duration: 7.5 hour total, plus support materials to complete your training system and embed your learnings - consisting of:

a) 1 x Open Tutored Session: 3.5 hours initial online Tutorial with other students. Session of 4 hours in length with a 15 minute break in the middle and 15 minutes Q & A at the end as extra.

b) 4 x Private sessions: plus up to 4 one-to-one online follow-up sessions of 1 hour each (= 4 hours). Times of these will be arranged to fit your schedule.

c) eBook - You get a digitla copy of 'BIM for Geospatial Professionals' - the new ebook from Steven Eglinton. This will help embed your learnings and includes a 'BIM jargon buster'.

Payment method: If you need pay via PayPal using this booking form - contact us for more details.

Certificate: Upon completion of the Tutor session and any one-to-one follow-up session, you will receive a certification of completion, detailing the topics you have learnt.

"GeoEnable provides very impressive BIM training. The tutor was extremely knowledgeable and shows real expertise and experience in BIM field, and he is willing to help at all times even after the course. Very pleased with the service and will fully recommend." Carol Han - DDC Engineering Solutions Limited

“...It is very important to identify where this sharing can be free and where it should be tightly controlled. GeoEnable, helped us with reviewing our existing information systems and helped us align it with all business processes. This was absolutely critical. GeoEnable assisted us with the improvement of information governance and formal processes which in return significantly enhanced access to Argent’s GIS and other information resources.” Lilia Wydra, GIS Manager – Argent (Property Development) Services LLP

... I am now able to confidently set up map services for clients and also introduce them to many of the features available in Wed GIS and BIM. GeoEnable guided me through the process involved and has provided ongoing support." Jeremy Murfitt, Director - Everything is Somewhere Ltd

What we cover on over the course of Session 1 and Session 2:

  • Overview to Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Digital Engineering concepts

  • Overview to Whole-Life Asset Management (PAS 55 & ISO 55000) concepts

  • Geo-Enabling BIM – location data providing context and a common reference

  • Common Data Environments (CDEs) Vs Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs)

  • 3D Visualisation - requirements for 'BIM Level 2' - based on the UK's BIM standards

  • What is meant by 'BIM Level 2', 'BIM Level 3' etc in the UK

  • Open BIM Data Standards e.g. IFC, COBie

  • Introduction to UK Government BIM Standards - BS/PAS 1192 Suite - UK's BIM standards

  • How Geospatial adds value to BIM

  • Web GIS as a way in - opportunities to link with BIM concepts

  • Collaboration and Information Sharing - what's the best approach?

  • Where Information Management skills are used

  • How GIS, CAD and Survey data is adding value

  • The challenges of understanding across teams - how we tackle them

  • Making the business case for 'Geospatial' (inc. CAD & survey, not only GIS)

  • Understand how ‘Geospatial’ and spatial is part of BIM

  • Information Management (IM) and the value of GIS skills

  • High-Accuracy Data Collection - integrated workflows (ZenoCollector used as an example)

  • Metadata - how do we embed this?

  • Information Portals - Mapping Portals and others for 'BIM'

  • The changing role of GIS, CAD and survey professionals

  • How to embed innovation and improvement
