2022 Virtual BIM Execution Planning (March 21, 2022)

  • Registration Closed

This course focuses on execution planning for Building Information Modeling (BIM). Different use cases for implementing BIM will be discussed (e.g., authoring the design, cost estimating and 4D modeling), but the course will not focus on how to create any specific model. In other words, this will not be a computer modeling course, but instead focuses on what model content should be developed and shared throughout the project lifecycle, as well as focusing on the process for managing the information flow. (8 CEUs)

At the end of the course students will be able to:

  • Understand the impact of implementing BIM on a design-build project, with a focus on the synergies of design-build and BIM
  • Understand the value of implementing a structured, standard procedure for planning BIM implementation on a project using a collaborative approach
  • Implement the four-step BIM Project Execution Planning procedure on your next project
  • Understand best practices for successfully implementing BIM on a design-build project
  • Assist an owner in the development of BIM needs on your next project


The DBIA Virtual Training classroom is not an “online” experience, but instead a true “virtual” experience. It allows remote attendees a real-time participant experience, fully engaged with their instructor and others in the classroom. Full engagement is critical As such, the following is required for those joining the classroom virtually:

  • You MUST have video/camera capability on the computer you will be using;
  • You MUST keep your video/camera on during the entirety of the training (you may turn it off during breaks and lunch). Each participant is expected to be visible as a class participant throughout the training, just as it would be if you were physically in the classroom;
  • Please find a quiet location that will have minimal distractions/disturbances;
  • Please Mute your microphone when you are not speaking; and
  • Remain in the virtual classroom during class activities as they, too, will take place virtually and you are expected to participate.

DBIA instructors and staff will actively monitor your attendance and reserve to right to decline issuance of a certificate of completion should virtual attendees not actively participate based on the rules above.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Education@dbia.org.

Penn State University

Dr. Dubler is the Associate Director of Facilities and affiliate Assistant Professor within the College of Engineering at Penn State. While earning his doctorate degree, he managed the development of the internationally acclaimed BIM Project Execution Planning Guide (http://bim.psu.edu/); a step-by-step guide to implementing Building Information Modeling (BIM) on design and construction projects. Upon completion of his degree, Dr. Dubler developed a program to successfully implement BIM across all major projects within University operations.  He was also responsible for the successful integration of design and construction data into facility enterprise systems. His current focus is the direction of facilities to continue the success of research, teaching, and service within the College of Engineering (CoE) at Penn State.  Craig is responsible for facility projects; general facility maintenance; space allocation; safety management and access control.  His teaching and research interests include Building Information Modeling; Applied Facilities Technology; Facilities Information Management and Engineering Lifecycle Economic Analysis for Buildings.
