BIM Quantity Take-Off

Event code: 78096

The Building Information Modelling (BIM) is certainly changing the way project teams work and is taking the construction industry into a new era of quicker and more productive processes, higher cost certainty with a reduction of risks. With a mandatory phased BIM submission by 2015, the need for quantity surveyors to embrace and evolve with BIM is inevitable and crucial to improve cost performance with certainty on increasingly complex projects worldwide.

Through international project case studies and hands-on exercises, participants will be able to understand the model-based quantity take-off process in 3D modelling and how it comprises trade-based standards of measurement rules in BIM to:
• Improve productivity through model-based quantity take-off compared to traditional methods
• Process in fast and accurate quantity measurements from tender stage to final accounts
• Accelerate cost estimation and decision making on resources planning
• Introduction of VDC, 5DBIM Process and Open BIM Concept
• Hands-on exercise on BIM Take-off Process from Tender Acquisition to Final Accounts
• Applications of BIM Modelling Standards on Architectural, Structural and MEP trades with SMM2
• 5D Measurement – From Elemental to Trade Based Quantity Take-off
• Demonstration and Hands-on Exercise on 5D BIM for residential and commercial project using TrimbleTM Vico OfficeTM
• Case study: International Applications of 5D BIM
• In-class Assignment
