UK BIM solutions provider certified to teach ‘The COBie Academy’, founded by COBie creator Bill East
Majenta Solutions is offering four ‘COBie Academy’ courses to help contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, information managers and project owners get a better understanding of the COBie data format, the foundation for British Standard 1192:4.
Majenta will provide four courses that specialise in BIM workflow management, including: ‘COBie Foundation’, ‘COBie – As Designed’, ‘COBie – As-Built’, ‘COBie Quality Control’. The courses are being delivered in association with Bill East, founder and designer of COBie, and the Center for Advanced Construction Information Modeling at The University of Florida.
“While a common understanding of COBie’s technical details is necessary, the COBie Academy will show you that COBie is not the end but only the means,” explains Bill East. “Simply put, COBie enables you to transform today’s wasteful and error-prone multiple booking of as-built data into a process where information is captured at the start of the project and efficiently augmented during the entire life of the project. Delivering a better product to the owner at a lower cost than is possible today.”
According to Majenta, the COBie Academy courses are designed to deliver the essential knowledge and hands-on techniques needed to work effectively within a BIM workflow. The courses are modular so the structure can be tailored for individuals so it provides relevant information to ‘fulfil their BIM requirement for the UK market’ whilst mastering the Construction-Operations Building information exchange (COBie). The COBie courses can be studied online, in-house at the Majenta Academy or at a customer site.
