Vico’s BIM for Executives class is taught at universities and in boardrooms across the world. Join as we bring this exclusive content to our Fridays with Vico audience.


Having BIM capabilities, whether with a professional services team or with an in-house team, is an important differentiator in today’s tight market. But many executives have the daunting task of selling these new deliverables to clients... and to their internal teams. This webinar helps executives better understand the cost and time outlay to acquire these BIM skills and then how best to market them externally and internally.


Building on the coursework from the BIM Master Class Series, BIM for Executives puts the dollars and cents around the technology, methodology, and personnel. As companies embrace the technology and train their staff to use these new tools they find out, often too late, that there is a new language they need to learn and that they need to be prepared to translate for their clients.


In addition, senior managers, though they may never actually use the software or delve deeply into the services, need to know what BIM does, how BIM works, and most importantly - the many different ways it can be used to manage the project.

This webinar is for your firm if:
>> Your company is considering whether or not to invest in BIM technology;

>> Your company is considering whether or not to utilize a BIM Professional Services Team;
>> Your company is considering re-writing preconstruction processes;

>> Your company has a BIM Task Force in place to explore options.
>> Your company has a goal to push BIM past modeling and clash detection to 4D schedules and 5D estimates;
>> Your company needs senior managers to communicate effectively with clients regarding BIM.
