UTC presented the workshop “Building Information Modeling (BIM)” to help participants learn how to build 3D models, which can be used in a variety of tasks. Participants learned software that will help them effectively develop models, conduct analysis and create presentations.
Dr. Aldo McLean saw the importance of offering this workshop to the Chattanooga region.
“This new application methodology is designed to help architects and construction professionals condense funds and improve the quality of their projects,” said Dr. McLean, assistant professor, Engineering Management and Technology.
The workshop was presented by instructor Josh Bone, the Southern Region manager for GRAPHISOFT North America. Mr. Bone has been implementing, training, and presenting information to architects, engineers, and construction companies for over 12 years. He is a certified instructor for the Associated General Contractors BIM Education Program.
The UTC Department of Engineering Management and Technology, the UTC Cranston Pearce Center for Applied Engineering and Technology (created to provide management and technology services to public and private organizations locally and regionally), and the UTC College of Engineering and Computer Science offered the workshop.
