On-campus unit delivery combines face-to-face and digital learning.

Aims and objectives

This Unit looks at how technology combined with BIM models can play a significant role in communication, information transparency, collaboration and improving issue comprehension, depth of engagement within an organisation, and decision making.

Students will undertake a review of different solutions that can take model and data from a working BIM model and drive the potential for improving project processes and outcomes. They will set up and demonstrate a researched innovation example based on the parameters of a workplace project and rate its effectiveness, the benefits versus investment and what could be improved.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:

1. Research current and emerging technologies that support collaborative workflows.
2. Identify the areas within the organisation where communication and better access to information is a known issue.
3. Identify the connections between BIM project workflows and the most efficient methods by which model and data is exchanged between a chosen collaborative platform.
4. Create cost versus benefit document based on previous projects delivered by an organisation supporting implementation of a collaborative platform.
