Your Details

The Building Information Modelling (BIM) process requirements and the Construction Design Management (CDM) requirements are very similar in their needs and objectives.

This one day classroom course gives an overview of BIM including a summary of the BIM requirements, with reference to the BIM standards, as well as a summary of the CDM2015 legal requirements, including the main duties of all of the duty holders and the considerations for the pre-construction information, the construction phase plan and the health and safety file.

The course explores the many synergies between BIM and CDM2015 Regulations. What BIM allows us to do is to have an earlier consideration of hazards and risks within the design as we are sharing and coordinating information with the project team.

It can benefit from such things as construction sequencing and virtual reality simulations – these processes are about constructing in a safe virtual environment without anybody getting hurt right through to the construction phase.


Training courses on set dates, in ICE Training venues across the country. Suitable for those looking to attend a training course and share knowledge and practical experiences with like-minded others in an interactive learning environment.


Bespoke training programmes. These are delivered by our tutors at a time, in a location and based on a curriculum completely tailored to your needs. Ideal for organisations that have several employees wishing to take training in the same subject area, and/or have organisation-specific ideas for learning and development.

Programme Overview

This training course starts at 09:00 and finishes at 17:00 with refreshment breaks midmorning and afternoon, plus lunch.
All timings, except the start time, are approximate and may be adjusted to suit natural breaks in the lesson.
An outline of the programme, by session:

Session 1 - The EIR and the PCI
  • A discussion on the synergy between the requirements of BIM and the requirements of CDM2015 in the similar requirements for the Employers Information Requirements and those of the Pre-Construction Information

Session 2 - Design and Design Co-ordination
  •  A discussion on how applying the BIM processes to design will allow and encourage the design team to act as a collaborative team, ensuring that the various design organisations and disciplines work together to provide a coordinated design that works in its entirety.

Session 3 - Construction Management
  • How BIM can provide for real-time build sequencing, making the planning of the construction processes easier and more accurate

Session 4 - Health and Safety File and Asset Management
  • The development of BIM to include the health and safety file and discussion on how this can be further developed into an asset/facilities management tool

The day ends with a multi-choice, open-book examination.
Tutors are drawn from a pool of health and safety consultants who have been offering training to the industry since 1987.

All tutors are professionally qualified in both engineering and health and safety.
Learning Objectives
Upon concluding the course, delegates will:
  • Have an increased understanding of BIM
  • Have an increased understanding of CDM2015
  • Appreciate the synergy between BIM and CDM2015
  • Be capable of incorporating the requirements of CDM2015 into the BIM processes, creating a more efficient, safer and healthier project and completed facility
Who Should Attend?
This course is suitable for people from a wide range of backgrounds including:
This course would also be useful to facilities and asset managers who may be considering the benefits of BIM and software designers developing the BIM software.
