BIM turns
WELL, MORE SPECIFICALLY, AGC'S
CM-BIM credential program.
Since its processes emerged in their
real-world application version, BIM has
been helping contractors, engineers,
architects and related professionals
operate at higher levels, attract new
talent and win impressive bids.
Five years is a veritable eon where
technology's concerned, so let's wish
the certification a happy anniversary
with a look at what it's accomplished,
for companies and their people, and a
projection of where it's going.

If proponents of Building Information Modeling
(otherwise known as BIM) were asked to convince
skeptics to consider adopting the collaborative
design process that uses computer models, some
might sum it up simply. Something along the lines
of that old Rush song, "Subdivisions" - Conform or
be cast out. Because the future can't be stopped.
BIM is, in many an industry pro's estimation,
the future of construction. And if you want to
"go forth and BIM," having the AGC Certificate
of Management-Building Information Modeling
(CM-BIM) designation tells your potential partners
you're on your game.
The CM-BIM is an assessment-based credential
that denotes knowledge and understanding of concepts related to BIM adoption, practice and process
transformation outlined in the AGC BIM Education
Program. Complete all four mandatory courses and
you're eligible to apply for the certification (exam
information is available at https://www.agc.org/
learn/education-training/building-informationmodeling/cm-bim). Fees, collected post-application
and review, total $550.
