BIMcert Survey - Closing date extended

Saturday 02 May 2015

BIMcert is a European wide project funded by H2020, aimed at providing a large scale training & qualification scheme to ensure that the skills needed for the entire construction supply chain.  As part of the project CITB NI are carrying out a survey of the industry to ascertain the current level of BIM maturity, knowledge and understanding within Built Environment practitioners and academia, to establish current levels of sustainable design and construction practice.

Click on the survey link below. It will only take 10mins to complete.

BIMcert Survey

The survey will close on Thursday 10th May

This project will:

  • Enable collaborative working to improve access to and the transition from design to development and delivery of both new build and renovation to achieve energy efficient near zero buildings (embedded energy)
  • Achieve efficient and effective ongoing management of the building in terms of energy and fabric (operational energy)
  • Utilise Building Information Modelling ( BIM), using virtual construction as the enabling methodology and tool to achieve sustainable energy efficient construction.

Purpose of the Survey

This survey will be used to collect answers from a wide range of individuals and companies engaged in the design and construction of buildings.  This survey will be used to assess:

-     The current status of knowledge and skills of BIM and sustainability aspects of construction industry,
-     Their interest in upskilling to a modern software based approach for more effective construction
-     Their favoured model and methods of learning and improving professional and applied skills

The Survey will be distributed throughout the EU countries.
The Survey will be anonymous, however, there is the opportunity for participant to join the pilot group for developing and testing the BIMcert training and qualification programme.
You are kindly asked to answer the questions and to assist in creating an innovative and effective training program for construction industry.
 
We would be grateful if you could share the survey with anyone else engaged in the design and construction of buildings.
