Event Details

From the April 2016, BIM was introduced into UK central government with a view to encouraging adoption across the public sector. The objective is that all projects across the UK public sector adopt BIM level 2. As well as the UK central government requiring BIM, most private clients are also now demanding BIM. So, what is BIM Level 2? How do we feed into the Asset Management Process & deliver the data requirements specified in the EIR & COBie Responsibility Matrix? This seminar will help to answer these questions for you.


Our aim is to guide you on how best to approach COBie using Autodesk Revit 2018 and gain an understanding of Ifc & Classification and their role in delivering structured data to feed into the overall COBie deliverable. We will highlight all the necessary steps on how to set up your model with the aid of both the Autodesk Classification Manager and the Autodesk COBie Extension in order to export COBie via Ifc & the Autodesk COBie Extension. 

Special Discounts & Prize Draw:

By attending this course you will be eligible to receive a £500 discount on Digital Guerrilla's "COBie Set up for Revit" which contains all the mapping files for Revit you will need aswell as a 70+ page guidance document (Valid up to 31st Oct 2018 ONLY). Full details can be found here (T&C's apply, optional maintenance contract available at an additional cost).
