BIMplement - Tools, training content and qualification schemes for BIM work place trainers (D4.5)

Share this Post:

The project objectives are to enhance nZEB construction and renovation, while easy up collaboration and up-skilling of stakeholders.

• The focus will be given to two major subjects, that will have a great influence on the nZEB result: ventilation and airtightness.

• BIM modelling and BIM model use will be the essential tools that will allow all stakeholders to collaborate

The main concerned stakeholders to reach these objectives are the building companies who work on site. The training sessions will be, preferably, carried out on the working site. The training program will have to take into account the local working situations that should be improved following this up-skilling.


This “BIM as a tool” approach is explicated in this deliverable. It aims at presenting the different types of training to be implemented, depending on the project, the stakeholders, and their skill levels. These training are focused on BIM (adapted uses at the different phases of the project, and in relation with the different stakeholders), but, as often as possible, demonstrations will be done on ventilation and air-tightness with the help of the WP3 (first) approach.


The definitions of the BIMplement project stakeholders, with reference to the Grant Agreement, are the following :

- The ‘BIMplement coach’ will be in charge of implementing the BIMplement project in its territory by mobilising stakeholders, finding and documenting potential field labs and experimental sites, and by coordinating the implementation of the project in its territory.

- The pilot field labs will be national or regional BIM-learning Centres or on-site construction projects where the trainings of ‘BIMplement workplace trainers’ and the first tests of the tools and learning methods of BIMplement will take place. A possible additional stakeholder has been introduced: the ‘BIMplement master trainer’. When it appear useful, Master trainers may train BIMplement workplace trainers who will implement on blue collar training. Such a solution has been developed in France where 30 projects are expected.

- For the implementation at the experimental sites, ‘BIMplement workplace trainers’ will be responsible for the training implementation on each experimental site. The BIMplement workplace trainers will receive assistance of Alliance Villes Emploi, ASTUS, and the other members of the consortium.


D4.5 gives a detailed content of:

- how the BIMplement (Master) trainer will analyse the project context

- what should be the BIMplement trainer pedagogical and technical skills

- canvas of a BIM training course, including a whole set of the different points the BIMplement trainer may encounter when he analyses his project (§6)

- detailed list of the data to be collected and analysed , related to ventilation and airtightness (§7) It has to be noted that §6 and 7 correspond also to what would be included in a training session for design office and project manager in order, for them, to design a more adapted BIM model for on site use

- and finally, (8), gives a detailed content of the training sessions to be given on site, for blue collar workers to use a BIM model
