Course Information

Building Information Modelling (BIM) and workflows are increasingly adopted to improve coordination of construction value chain and reduce reworks. Recently, the Building Construction Authority has mandated that files adhering to the BIM IFC-SG guidelines, must be submitted for processing and authority approval.

While this process allows for a streamlined, information-rich process, it is a paradigm shift for many users as they must ensure 3D building models are rich sources of data to assist in compliance checks. As critical sources of data, the models must comply to guidelines and standards for regulators to do data take-offs while processing the submissions.

Through this course, an introduction to CorenetX and IFC-SG standards, participants will be empowered with fundamental knowledge on how to use technology tools and processes, evaluate uses cases to have an in-depth understanding of digitalisation of the construction sector. Best practices for the submission process will be covered to ensure participants are equipped with the necessary knowledge for hassle-free submissions.
