Here’s a glimpse of the transformative topics covered during over week of our training:

Introduction to BIM and BIM Collaborate Pro

We started by defining what is BIM and why is it crucial in road construction and design. This was followed by the benefits of BIM in terms of project efficiency, cost savings, and collaboration, and creating a BIM Collaborate Pro project. We also helped the team understand the different user roles: Project Admin, Project Member, etc. Concluded by setting up user permissions for effective collaboration.

Software Interface and Basic Functions

We explored the cloud dashboard, project overview, and file management, how to upload and organize the design and construction models, how to manage versions and revisions, using the built-in viewer to review and navigate models plus adding markups, comments, and annotations.

Project Collaboration and Model Coordination

We trained the team on coordinating models from different disciplines (Wet utilities, dry utilities, etc.). Using Clash Detection to identify and resolve clashes in designs. The creation, assigning, and tracking issues within the platform. How to Integrate issues with the models for clear communication. We trained how different teams from different locations can work on the design process in real-time, helped by understanding how simultaneous editing works in the cloud.

Advanced Features and Workflows

This training section focused on the integration of BIM Collaborate Pro with other software tools, focusing on REVIT. Followed by managing and syncing data between desktop and cloud. Generating project reports, visualizations, and analytics. Extracting valuable insights for decision-making. Setting up custom workflows and processes. and closed by incorporating company BIM standards and templates

BIM Implementation and Best Practices

Understanding an implementation strategy and BIM Execution Plan for NPD as a company, Identifying challenges and solutions, Implementing best practices for effective collaboration using BIM Collaborate Pro. and ensuring data integrity and security

Building Information Modelling (BIM) has evolved as a transformational strategy to improving the efficiency, accuracy, and collaboration within the building and infrastructure development industry in an era of fast technology growth.
