The Birmingham Section started 2015 with a political reception at the Murray Building Co. jobsite at the old Merita Bread Bakery. More than 150 members were in attendance with city and state officials. Everyone enjoyed a tour of the site as well as barbecue from Joe McNabb and Hendrix Chevrolet.

Alabama AGC to Host BIM Education Classes

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is changing the way projects are constructed. Whether you are a prime contractor using BIM across an entire project or a subcontractor impacted by a specific BIM implementation, this emerging practice requires new mindsets and technological know-how in order to achieve significant improvements in efficiency and cost control.

AGC's BIM Education Program — developed in conjunction with leading BIM practitioners, technology firms and educators—is designed to prepare construction professionals at all experience levels to successfully implement BIM on a construction project.

Each BIM Education Program course provides a full day of training for a total of 32 hours of course time. After participants complete all four courses in the program they become eligible to sit for the Certificate of Management—Building Information Modeling exam. All courses should be take sequentially.

The CM-BIM is the construction industry's only credential that teaches the practical application of the Building Information Modeling process for commercial construction firms.
