The RIAI and the BRE Academy present a series of BRE Academy BIM training courses leading to BRE BIM Membership for RIAI members. These courses are non-technical aimed at Project Leaders & Managers. The RIAI is offering this course to RIAI members because, as the use of BIM in construction projects increases, it is vital that architectural professionals take on the role of BIM Information Manager to complement their role as Design Team Leader.
The RIAI are actively endorsing and promoting the use of UK PAS1192 standards in Ireland, and accreditation provides a means for companies to demonstrate their BIM capability. This is particularly relevant to practices delivering services in the UK & Northern Ireland, where BIM will be mandatory on public projects by 2016.
