As a result of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) emergency, and Government/University advice, the project has transitioned to a new format. Organisation should encourage working online where possible, and ensure covid-19 safety precautions are taken when the student needs to be on site. Students have been advised to think creatively about how to keep in contact with their organisations using digital media until the end of the Covid-19 emergency.
The University of the West of England, Bristol has been running a successful MSc course "BIM in Design, Construction and Operations".
We are looking for companies who need help to implement a BIM strategy and a BIM case study.
The placement will focus on the following:
• BIM capability assessment resulting in BIM strategy development
• BIM implementation case study (selected in agreement with the company)
If you are successful, an MSc student from the course will help the company to get BIM ready.
Students are expected to spend the equivalent of 8 contact days with your company over a period of between 7 - 10 months. Each contact day is roughly between 9am and 5pm. The time and schedule of visits (including remote working) is to be agreed between the student and the company.
Hosting a work-based BIM project will involve commitment from you to supervise the student and provide an induction for them. Employers involved with the scheme have told us their projects have given a considerable return on their investment.
