Overview

Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology has revolutionised sustainable construction practices by streamlining processes and improving collaboration. With its transformative potential, BIM empowers project managers to achieve accurate quantity take-offs and drive carbon reduction efforts. Through this seminar, attendees will gain valuable insights into how BIM enhances sustainability throughout the project life cycle. Real-world case studies will showcase practical applications of BIM in quantifying materials and reducing carbon footprint. By embracing BIM, project managers can make informed decisions, improve design efficiency, and select sustainable materials for a greener built environment. 

This seminar serves as a platform to enhance their understanding and application of BIM in sustainable construction, enabling them to become leaders in driving sustainable practices and staying at the forefront of the evolving construction industry.
