Regardless of your role within your company, Building Information Modelling affects the way you do business. With BIM being mandated on all public projects by 2016, and adoption accelerating in the private sector, all levels of staff need to be prepared. Evolve’s BIM Awareness Workshops enable this through presentations, best practice advice, discussion, and hands-on project-based exercises.
