This course focuses on creating BIM models using the CYPE Architecture and CYPECAD programs, as well as obtaining building energy performance certificates using CYPETHERM EPlus. You will also learn how to carry out bills of quantities using Open BIM Quantities. Open BIM Layout will be used to complete the project documents. Thanks to the Open BIM working methodology, all of this will be done in an integrated way.

General objectives

  • Developing a BIM project using CYPE applications.
  • Acquiring the necessary skills for applying design processes, exchanging information between specialised tools and compiling, elaborating and organising the documents required for a BIM project.

Target group

  • Architecture, engineering and construction professionals.
  • Students in their final years of technical studies who are interested in learning about this tool that is so widespread in firms and technical offices.
  • Companies, organisations and groups wishing to attend these courses from their offices.
