Project Manager Training

FOR REVIT AND CODEBOOK

Once the Executive Briefing Presentation is done, the second part is a 5.5 hour "hands-on" BIM class for the office Project Managers who would NOT be involved in using BIM as a day-to-day production tool. This training is not a "technical training" but instead an overview of BIM's capabilities and limitations. It allows the PM's to get a hands-on look at their "live" projects, allowing them to open their own team Revit models or CodeBook databases, open some views, review the sheet set, check some dimensions, add "red-mark” clouds, add notes, run reports, print sheets, and save these edits for the production staff.

CLIENTS ATTENDING THE Project Manager's Training

BRION BOUCHER, ASSOCIATE VP, DIRECTOR OF DESIGN TECHNOLOGIES, AECOM

"CDV's team has been involved with our BIM Implementation since the beginning and has trained our architectural, structural, and MEP staff using projects at many of our locations in the US, and a few others around the world. They also were instrumental in preparing the foundations of our BIM standard practices, and to this day, provide consistency in translating these practices to real world projects. We have come to depend on their professionalism and their high value contributions to the AECOM BIM implementation effort. They have been great to work with".
 

From our experience, those BIM projects that failed and reverted back to 2D CAD did so via the Project Managers. PM’s are the key staff members who often had the least knowledge of BIM yet had to adhere to their project's schedule and budget. On the other hand, those PM's who were engaged with the BIM from the start, with a clearer understanding of how to navigate their model structure, team staffing, model LOD, project deliverable & schedules and model expectations, saw far more BIM success in a shorter time frame.

The KEY is the first project. It's the most difficult for the PMs and their BIM teams. This training is designed to help guide the PM and provide a better understanding of how their BIM project models are organized, managed and maintained.
