BIM demystified

£18.99

Product description

BIM Demystified is a short, practical introduction to Building Information Modelling (BIM). Addressing BIM from the point of view of mainstream practice as opposed to a cutting-edge technological perspective, it offers a user-friendly yet thorough explanation of a subject which is often swamped by jargon and deluged with spin. Taking a wide view of BIM encompassing business opportunity, Code of Conduct, cultural issues and the necessity for better legal arrangements too the books chapters range from the BIM ingredients (including objects, parametrics, and standards), to the business case for BIM and how to implement it. BIM requires a shift in attitudes if its benefits are to be obtained and this book will allow individuals at all levels in any practice to build a firmer understanding of the merits and wider application of the subject. It aims to bring together both managers and technologists within businesses throughout the AECC chain to form better and more valuable propositions for built environment interventions. New to the second edition: The evolution of BIM the movement and the acronym The impact of the Government initiative PAS1192, COBie and BIM Protocol demystified BIM and the RIBA Plan of Work 2013 BIM and the supply chain Training and education

Oxfam Shop Frodsham Street

We are a city centre store in the heart of Chester. We consist of two shops joined together. 

In our book shop we sell a variety of items from rare stamps and coins to first edition books. There is always something to be bought; whether it's a new novel for a long bus journey, a DVD to have a lazy sofa day or a postcard with a beautiful picture of our idyllic city. 

In our clothes shop we sell women's, men's and children's clothes and accessories. Whether you want a new dress for a day at Chester Races, new clothes you won't have to worry about getting covered in mud, or a tie for that important interview; we have it here at Chester. 

We also sell home wares; such as collector's items, linens and children's toys. Whatever you need why not pop into Frodsham Street and help support a fantastic cause.
