Evaluating learning management mechanisms and requirements for achieving BIM competencies: an in-depth study of ACE practitioners

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding


This study aims to identify training methods, skills and management requirements to achieve BIM competencies required for delivering BIM projects in construction and design project teams. The investigation includes semi-structured interviews in the Architecture, Construction and Engineering (ACE) industry in the UK. The research is designed from the perspective of design and construction professionals with BIM project experience. The paper discusses existing training approaches and learning mechanisms within the project teams in the ACE industry, which can benefit both team and individual learning. The study provides an analysis of practical experiences, from the interview findings. It also explains why learning-by-doing is the essential approach and also certain strengths of passive, structured learning. The research recommends the ‘set of skills’ required within project teams and also the ‘training methods’ construction professionals consider the most effective.
