Join the USGBC Illinois North/Northwest Suburban Branch and the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) in the digital world of computer based Building Information Modeling (BIM). 

(Approved for 1.5 GBCI CE and AIA LU|HSW|SD hours)

The program will highlight the advantages of using BIM during the LEED design and construction process.  Not only does BIM help Architects and Engineers make informed design decisions early in the design process, BIM also becomes an asset for the contractor during construction.  With a greater degree of accuracy and information tracking, a BIM model becomes a repository of building information critical to the long term use by the Building Owner. Learn how the Federal Government requires BIM for all major projects. Our guest speakers are representatives of AutoDESK Systems and Graphicsoft- two of the largest CAD/BIM software companies in the industry.
