Dear Members,

BIM (Building Information Modeling) is an innovative technology that manages and transfers building data digitally. BIM is widely used in architecture, engineering, construction and project management because of its flexibility, speed and advantages in handling repetitive tasks.

Developed by Graphisoft, their Archicad is one of the most popular architectural BIM softwares and we are delighted to host a workshop to introduce Archicad to students and professionals on October 15, 10:00 – 11:30 AM.

This workshop will consist of an overview of BIM workflows, the advantages of Archicad, and hands-on exercises using the software – as well as an interactive Q&A session. Participants will learn how BIM can help users to work smarter in both educational and professional environments, and may attend the workshop either in person or online.
