BIM-GIS Integration for Architecture, Engineering & Construction


The first day of this 2-day course is delivered by Steven Eglinton (Director of BimEnable & GeoEnable). Steven introduces an overview of BIM (Building Information Modelling) & Asset Information in the context of UK BIM Level 2 (BS / PAS 1192) & International Standards (ISO 19650). Steven will set the scene for the advantages and management of Geo-Enabling your BIM processes including process improvement and change management. Finishing with GIS/BIM applications including the Internet of Things, Smart Cities and Gemini Principles – the UK National Digital Twin.

Delegates will put the theory and principles learned on the first day with Steven into practice. The second day is delivered by an Esri UK & Ireland Instructor where delegates will experience demonstrations and hands-on exercises using the ArcGIS platform to integrate with CAD and BIM datasets. You will learn the workflows associated with handling GIS & CAD data and BIM models utilising geoprocessing tools and interactive analysis within ArcGIS Pro. You will also learn how to effectively publish data to ArcGIS Online, so you can collaborate and engage, to provide views of your BIM processes in a geographic and narrative context to your audiences.
