BIM Training in Waltham Forest

17th May 2021

Simian’s partnering approach to training has added another fantastic dimension to our portfolio of modern construction training courses!

We have joined forces with BIM Academy to provide a centre of excellence for Building Information Modelling (BIM) training at our LASC centre in Waltham Forest.

Building Information Modelling training

BIM Academy was founded in 2010 by Northumbria University and Ryder Architecture, and is now regarded as a leading global provider of digital solutions and consulting for strategic information management, operating in 19 countries on 4 continents.

Speaking of the partnership, Simon Hughes, MD at Simian, said:

“At the very heart of our strategy for LASC, is the desire to promote digital integration into construction, and assist in the development of modern methods of construction. The partnership with BIM Academy is a huge step in achieving that.

 Building information modelling, commonly known as ‘BIM’, is the use of intelligent 3D modelling software to help architecture, engineering, and construction professionals with project planning, design, construction management, and ongoing building operations, and it offers fantastic benefits to those involved in all aspects of construction, throughout the whole lifecycle of a construction project, from inception right through to completion and beyond.

 We are delighted to be working alongside BIM Academy and are looking forward to developing the scope of the BIM training provided at our London Academy of Sustainable Construction site. The addition of training of this nature will provide modern digital Skills for Waltham Forest residents and for the wider London community.”

 Graham Kelly, Director at BIM Academy commented:

“We are delighted to be working with SIMIAN at their London Academy of Sustainable Construction site. It is a great opportunity for BIM Academy to support this fantastic initiative. All our training and development programmes are designed to meet the needs of professionals in the built environment who are seeking to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding in all areas of digital information management, BIM software and workflows.

 Our team draw upon extensive knowledge, experience and best practice – gained from practical application in industry since 2003 and our award-winning consultancy since 2010 – together with world-leading academic research. Our BIM training is aligned to the ISO 19650 series where you will learn how to effectively manage information across all stages of your construction projects.”

 Our first BIM course, “BIM Fundamentals” will take place on 03 August and is bookable via our website. This course is aimed at construction and infrastructure professionals, designers, manufacturers, contractors, facilities management, engineers and essentially anyone who wishes to increase their understanding of BIM.
