Andrew Hamilton, Belfast Met construction lecturer, delivering a BIMcert workshop.
BIMcert’s innovative training platform for the construction industry is opening now and about to become a reality. The platform is an online training portal enabling all construction workers to access it and is now live with temporary free training for all.
BIMcert aims to develop a series of training interventions using digital technology and improved blended techniques to support, enhance and maximise the impact of energy efficient skills at all operational levels within the construction industry.
Central to this is the creation of an accredited curriculum and framework of qualifications developed through the work and output from each work package, within the context of a national and European wide framework.

BIM is a key part of the fourth revolution (digitalisation) of the AEC industry and an enabling tool for a cleaner and more sustainable built environment. This has been recognised by the European commission and a number of H2020-funded projects – including BIMcert – are focused on providing training frameworks and support to upskill the industry.
The BIMcert partners are Belfast Met, CITB, Future Analytics, Technological University Dublin (TU), IST/CERIS Portugal, IECE Macedonia and EIHP Croatia. Here Paul McCormack the BIMcert Programme Manager and Innovation Manager at Belfast Met, gives a summary on how BIM can effectively achieve sustainability and energy efficiency goals and targets, and explains why upskilling the industry is a key requirement.
