This high-level course gives leaders an understanding of what to expect from their team members; and how to best communicate ideas with their team, clients, and consultants in a BIM environment.

This class has been designed to help better inform those in leadership roles that aren’t able to use Archicad on a daily basis, but need to be able to communicate correctly with their team, clients, and consultants about what they should expect from a true BIM process.

Attendees will be able to dive into Archicad and understand project navigation, basic measurements, and Teamwork. The remote learning course will conclude by exporting a BIMx file and become familiar with the basic fundamentals for easy presentations.
