5D Quantity Surveying with Navisworks


We need to help you stay on the cutting edge of construction project delivery, from CAD practices through 3D and 4D to 5D BIM workflows. Stop using traditional project management methods in the modern world; this training will provide you with 5D skills using Revit, Navisworks, and PowerBI, combined as top platforms for managing large civil construction projects, allowing project teams from the field to the office to work more effectively, quickly, and safely.

The architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry is increasingly embracing digital construction. The fifth dimension of Building Information Modeling (5D BIM) contributes significantly to the AEC industry, such as managing time and costs, and resources. 5D BIM is Building Information Modeling, which consists of a 3D model as well as scheduling (4D) and cost management (5D). 5D BIM is a cutting-edge technology in the AEC industry that can be used to manage time, cost, and resources at the same time, as well as the logistical site plan.

Because 5D BIM can quickly extract approximated quantities from different 3D BIM models and then add the 4D schedule to finalize the 5D cost budget, it can help quantity surveyors review alternative designs as a decision-making tool during the early stages of the project.

Your company or yourself can increase productivity while preparing for future advancements in the construction industry with the help of 5D BIM software. As new developments are constantly being developed, this training will keep you up to date with the latest technology. Following completion of the training, participants will be certified by Autodesk as specialists in 5D quantity surveying.

Stay ahead of the job market by expanding your practices in the fifth dimension of construction project management. Equip yourself or your team with BIM capabilities to execute planning and scheduling quickly and accurately using the world's leading BIM software technologies.
