“BIM IS A TRANSFORMATIVE TECHNOLOGY, VERY SIMILAR TO THE INTERNET. MUCH LIKE INTERNET ADOPTION, IT IS INITIALLY BEING USED TO AUTOMATE KNOWN WORKFLOWS AND LEGACY INFORMATION. AS THIS TECHNOLOGY BECOMES BETTER UNDERSTOOD, IT WILL SOON BE USED TO CHANGE AND IMPROVE CONSTRUCTION PROCESSES. FUNDAMENTALLY, THE OWNER COMMUNITY HAS NOT BENEFITED FROM THE INFORMATION AGE, WHILE THE ADVENT OF TECHNOLOGY HAS CREATED A HIGH LEVEL OF TRANSPARENCY TO THE CONSUMER. BIM IS CHANGING THE OWNER’S PROCESSES AND SHAPING THE WAY THEY DO BUSINESS.”
K. Pramod Reddy, co-director of the program, “BIM for Building Owners and Developers”
It is valuable for an organization to virtually construct a building or an infrastructure as it is going to be constructed on-site before the actual project has begun. This can eliminate many construction process inefficiencies, thus allowing faster execution, cost savings, programming and design evaluation, asset management and workflow improvement.
Each team member can update information in BIM, which is then transferred to the next phase without loss or duplication. Team members can access a model, update it or extract information at any phase of the construction process. After completion, the owner, developer or facility manager receives a data-rich model and can evaluate the project’s entire lifecycle.
During this program you will learn about BIM implementation, different engineering systems, management software and real life case study methodologies. Moreover, participants from different organizations and geographical regions will be able to share and develop their knowledge with each other.
Our professors share their extensive knowledge in this executive level program for senior business management specialists. This is combined with our board members’ experience in BIM implementation and our membership both in private and public organizations in the AECO industry. The directors of this program, BIM Academy, contribute a global and thorough vision of BIM. The use of BIM for investment, wealth management and development of both public and private projects ensures savings from 20% to 40% during the construction cycle.
This is made possible by the BIM Owner, who manages all of the teams involved in a construction project, and has the skills needed to optimize all the information about a building project – from planning to completion and commissioning to handover.

THE BUSINESS VALUE OF BIM FOR OWNERS AND DEVELOPERS
GREATER CONTROL OVER THE PROJECT
Computer programs can be integrated with one another using specific BIM model calculation and management tools.
REDUCTION OF COST AND TIME
A virtual model allows you to know, before starting work, if there is a conflict in the design and to resolve the issue. This saves time and project costs, and optimizes the actual construction project.
Companies that use BIM software increase productivity between 25% and 35%, making them more competitive in the market.
Seeing the design proposal in three dimensions allows greater understanding for all parties involved at any stage in the lifecycle of a building.
Delivering projects in BIM format is a steadily growing market demand. We anticipate that by 2020 it will be mandated by binding rules.
COORDINATION AND COLLABORATION BETWEEN PROFESSIONALS
BIM facilitates the team’s operation in real time, by providing greater agility in communication between professionals, and by ensuring compliance with scheduled delivery deadlines.
Once the Owner or Developer recognizes the paradigm shift and acknowledges that he must adapt, the next step is to assess what impact this change will have on the business and how to respond. As long as the change is approved, then plans can be made to adapt the organization’s business model accordingly.
After mastering the BIM for Owners and Developers Global Executive Program, you will understand and be prepared to take advantage of the BIM paradigm shift.

This executive program focuses on the challenges and opportunities that BIM offers to Owners and Developers.
The first module of the program focuses on theory delivered by the most respected professionals and researchers. The second module is all about real life case studies, explained in-person by their main characters.
All of the concepts from the first module are applied in the second module, to demonstrate the benefits of different types of projects in different situations on various continents. Finally, during the third module, participants create their own case studies.
These three modules will be held online. At the completion of the program, a meeting will be held which will provide you with the perfect opportunity to meet with the directors, advisory board member, professors and other participants of the program in person.
The first meeting is going to be held at the European BIM Summit next May 2017, in Barcelona (organized by buildingSMART, the Association of Building Engineers of Barcelona and BIM Academy). The second edition of the course will take place during the celebration of BIM World in Munich next October 2017. Each BIM for Owners and Developers meeting is open to all participants and guest board members.
THEORY – 10 OWNER’S BIM DIMENSIONS
This 40-hour module is divided into ten BIM Dimensions for owners and developers. It is a structured way to present the full potential of this technology and tooling process.
These topics are covered in ten units:
1. INTRODUCTION TO BIM
· Directives, Mandates, ISO, CEN, Guidelines, Protocols .
This unit explains the methodology of BIM as a vector for change to improve efficiency in the construction sector. It also covers the development of working commissions, and participants will be encouraged to create a dialogue about the evolution of these important committees. The unit will also describe new forms of employment that create ideal environments for taking full advantage of BIM tools.
2. BIM IMPLEMENTATION
· Collaborative Project, Collaborative Process, Collaborative Construction
· Contract Models for Collaborative Processes: DB, IPD, Alliance .
The goal of this unit is to understand the objectives and uses of BIM as a cornerstone in implementation planning. It will cover BIM platforms and tracks for linear works, BIM for building platforms, an overview of current software platforms for 4D and 5D, pre-engineering and pre-construction, BIM profiles, an introduction to BIM and the BIM Implant Plan, and the cost of an implementation.
3. THE 3D MODEL
This unit presents an introduction to existing modeling software, and demonstrates how to interact with a model. You will learn how to extract key information from large quantities of data, and how to track financial information.
Model checking: Clash detection tools
· Techniques laser scanner / photogrammetry for the treatment of point clouds to control the execution work.
· What information is needed to prepare for the delivery of virtual book building; IFC format. Setting parameters, links, formats…
· Would explain the usefulness of a free viewer for IFC
· Preparation and printing of views
4. VIRTUAL PLANNING
Planning, planning, planning. How can BIM ensure that your project meets its deadlines?
This unit will show how to use BIM tools such as Microsoft Project to coordinate time and the planning process, and how to connect the project with the planning.
This unit describes how BIM can help you maintain economic control of the project through precision estimating. It also covers bidding with BIM, the basics of linking a BIM model to a budget, the current capabilities of BIM platforms when connected with budgets, and the strengths and weaknesses in generating a budget. Although this class takes a practical approach, it is presented from the perspective of the user. You will be able to see how a budget is linked to the skeleton model, and then, how to exchange information.
6. ENERGY MODEL
This unit focuses on energy efficiency and real-time sustainability. Using a virtual model, it will demonstrate the workflow, and the role of the project coordinator. The unit will emphasize the new forms of voluntary energy certification such as LEED and BREEAM. Finally, it will cover Building Environment Modeling, or BEM, for energy certification.
7. MODEL FOR MAINTENANCE
This unit focuses on the benefit of using a digital model for managing a facility or infrastructure and the importance of determining the level of information in each material, product and object, It will also discuss how BIM can help maintain an existing facility when there is no model available, by using innovative tools such as laser scans, drones, virtual reality and augmented reality.
8. BIM FOR HEALTH AND SAFETY
This unit discusses how BIM technologies used on a practical level can affect the health and safety professional, how health and safety information might be included in a BIM, and the potential commercial benefits of reducing accidents and deaths.
9. LEAN CONSTRUCTION
This unit focuses on implementing lean management in construction, to eliminate wasted hours, wasted material and wasted work.
· Rework methodology using BIM as part of Lean Philosophy
· Last Planner workshop
· Digitalization as main factor for production
· Thinking Building as an industrial sector
10. INDUSTRIALIZED CONSTRUCTION
· Towards maximum ROI.
· Current obstacles to productivity in the construction sector.
This unit will teach how to maximize ROI and avoid current obstacles to productivity in the construction sector by looking at construction with an industrial mindset, and by treating buildings and infrastructure assets as products. The goal is to fabricate instead of build. Modularity, offsite production and modern methods of construction all play key roles. The unit will also present examples of implementation and subsequent management.
REAL CASE STUDIES - BIM IMPLEMENTATION
This is a 40-hour module that presents four case studies. We have benchmarked the best case study methodologies used in business schools (such as Harvard, Aalborg University, and IESE) and we translated them for the construction sector.
We have asked 50 professionals and experts to create their own case studies, based on their own experiences. Each one presents the conceptual framework of a company or a project and the solution generated to solve it. Case studies cover all building fields, and are divided into two sectors, buildings and infrastructures.
You will be able to choose any case study, based on your professional interests.
· Public Administration Buildings
· Smart City
· Public Infrastracture
· Block Housing
· Water Channels
· Roads, Highways
PERSONAL BIM IMPLEMENTATION PROJECT
After the first theory module, where ten BIM Dimensions are dissected, and the second practical module, applying concepts to real case studies, it is time for you to create your own case study and simulate the decision making process.
This last 40-hour module is designed to help you to decide on your own needs while working with a personal advisor. There are two possibilities: to create a BIP or to create a BEP.
BIP is the set of specific actions necessary to successfully implement BIM both in public and private companies. We will help you to set your own BIP action plan for your organization.
BEP is the acronym for BIM Execution Plan, and it is the main protocol document for a BIM project. BEP can be used to create a financial proposal for the delivery of a building or infrastructure with all the necessary documentation. You can choose to execute this plan with one of your own existing projects.
