The course reflects the increasingly digital, multi-disciplinary and integrated nature of project delivery, influenced by the demand from governments and clients for greater efficiencies on construction projects. These efficiencies can be gained from more accurate prototyping, simulation, costing, planning, design, production and operation, and will be an output of sound information management and data input to Building Information Modelling (BIM) software. The unique nature of Westminster's Building Information Management course is the focus on 'Management', which will create professionals who are able to manage the whole construction process and the information associated with this.
