Existing Conditions Modeling Fundamentals 
On-demand I 9CEU I Intermediate I Heritage & Technology
 
Existing Conditions Modelling Fundamentals is a highly interactive online course that expands on the fundamentals of Heritage Building Information Modelling (HBIM). Familiarize yourself with the important high-level concepts that will keep you current in practice. Gain the confidence to  discuss the concepts of HBIM workflows, data acquisition and output, and key challenges in Heritage BIM with your team and clients. Practice your skills with guided learning and coaching that will build your confidence. 
 
This two-part online course is designed for architects and professionals in the AEC industry. In Part One of this online course, learn on-demand at your own pace. Then, in Part Two, take advantage of live online coaching with the Carleton Immersive Media Studio team! Ask questions, get feedback, and network with other participants. 
 
Part 1: Data Acquisition and HBIM Summary
 
Data Acquisition and HBIM is an introduction to the concepts of Heritage BIM vs. BIM. Architects who are new to the concepts will find this self-directed online course a great way to become familiar with the high-level concepts. This is an excellent online course for owners, principles, and managers of architecture firms who want to understand the fundamental concepts of HBIM and BIM and be able to speak to clients about its benefits and opportunities.
 
Part One Learning Outcomes: 
  1. Describe the basic concepts and characteristics that distinguish building information modelling (BIM). 
  2. Explain why, and assess when, BIM is appropriate for existing and heritage buildings. 
  3. Detail the process for managing BIM for existing and heritage buildings. 
 
Part 2: Point Cloud to BIM with Revit Summary
 
Point Cloud to BIM with Revit compliments Part 1: Data Acquisition and HBIM by providing more intermediate knowledge and an opportunity to practice the skills learned. In Part 2, you will learn how to model a heritage building from point cloud data with step-by-step guided video tutorials. This online course connects the participants and the CIMS team through a live virtual meeting where the CIMS team will review participants’ models and provide coaching and guidance.
 
Part Two Learning Outcomes: 
  1. Describe the basic concepts and characteristics that distinguish building information modeling (BIM).
  2. Explain why and assess when BIM is appropriate for existing and heritage buildings. 
  3. List the appropriate techniques for acquiring and creating digital assets. 
  4. Detail the process for managing BIM for existing and heritage buildings. 
  5. Develop the basic skills necessary for developing a building information model of an existing building from point cloud data in Revit. 

*Participants must have access to Revit 
 
Existing Conditions Modeling Fundamentals is presented in partnership with Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS).

About CIMS
 
The Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS) is a Carleton University Research Centre (CURC) affiliated with the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism in the Faculty of Engineering and Design. CIMS is a pioneer in the application of BIM for architectural rehabilitation and heritage conservation. The CIMS projects range in scale from one-room prairie churches to national (Parliament Hill) and world heritage sites (Rideau Canal). Their intimate knowledge of digitization and BIM for the representation and management of existing built assets puts them in a unique position to contribute to the education of professionals in the digital heritage sector of the architecture, engineering, construction and operations industry. 
 
Course Instructors
 
Stephen Fai holds a professional BArch (Carleton) and a PhD in religious studies (Ottawa). He is an Associate Professor at the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism where he teaches in the design studio and co-chairs the PhD program. He has taught courses on architectural representation and on various themes in the history and theory of architecture. Dr. Fai served as the acting director of the School of Architecture (2002 - 2004), director (2004 - 2005), and associate director, graduate programs (2006 - 2010). His current research interests are at the intersection of architecture, image making, and hybrid digital/analogue technologies. He became the director of the Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS) in 2007 and — over the past decade — has developed five lines of inquiry that address the application of digital technologies in the context of architectural conservation and rehabilitation. Specifically: digitization; building information modelling (BIM); simulation; digitally assisted fabrication; digitally assisted storytelling.  
 
Lara Chow is the Associate Director at the Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS) — a research centre associated with the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism at Carleton University. The research agenda of CIMS is concerned with the study and development of hybrid forms of representation and fabrication for architectural rehabilitation and heritage conservation. She has led several research teams for projects at CIMS including the Centre Block BIM, Library of Parliament BIM, and the development of an urban model of the National Capital Region of Ottawa. Lara holds a Bachelor of Architectural Studies and Masters of Architecture from Carleton University.  
 
Tyler Grunt graduated from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Architecture. During his studies, he had the opportunity to begin working at Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS). Throughout his time at CIMS he led multiple heritage projects including the Parliamentary Precinct Buildings of Canada, which has contributed to his in-depth knowledge of Heritage Building Information Modelling (HBIM). 
 
Hilary Romaniuk recently graduated from the Bachelor of Architectural Studies program at Carleton University in the Spring of 2020. She has worked at the Carleton Immersive Media Studio since 2017. She has participated in and led multiple HBIM projects including the Centre Block building of the Parliament Hill National Historic Site. Hilary specializes in modelling highly complex existing conditions projects and parametric families in Autodesk Revit.
