APEC 420 Professional Concerns II: Advanced Project Management: (BIM) Building Information Modeling and Architectural Programming

Issues of practice management, including topics in building programming, project management and the management of information systems and software related to building such as BIM or Building Information Modeling. This approach to design process documentation and development of construction documents is currently the main focus of most of the developers of CAD systems for the profession. The principal idea behind the use of BIM based systems is the embedding of relevant information in parametric modeling systems. This allows the designer to track aspects of the design process ranging from fabrication and manufacturing information to physical properties to related spec data to detailing requirements to cost estimating.
