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.

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.

*Participants must have access to Revit

Existing Conditions Modelling 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.

Stephen Fai

Associate Professor, Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism

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.
