ABC and Synergis Team Up to Deliver BIM Training for Contractors

ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 22, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —  Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) today announced a collaboration with Synergis Engineering Design Solutions, a Platinum provider of Autodesk products, to bring Building Information Modeling (BIM) training to ABC contractor members to make them more productive, efficient and profitable. The training is part of a larger effort known as Project Virtual.

 

"This collaboration is the foundation of an idea that will enable ABC members to work with their clients, eliminate waste and rework, more effectively plan for project success, minimizing design conflicts in a 3D environment, and ultimately deliver that work safely, ethically and profitably for all involved," said ABC President and CEO Michael D. Bellaman. "Together, ABC and Synergis have created Project Virtual, which will provide a customized training and design BIM solution specifically for ABC members."

"We are excited to enter into this partnership with ABC to provide the construction industry access to the latest solutions, tools and training," said Synergis Engineering Design Solutions Vice President Kristen Tomasic. "Project Virtual extends Synergis' reach and allows us to educate ABC members, raise industry awareness and provide our expertise to further the adoption of BIM."

Registration is currently open for classes that will be held in early 2014. Classes are designed specifically for contractors, and will be conducted in an online, interactive format with a live instructor. The initial set of classes will focus both on fundamental and advanced areas of BIM. To see a complete schedule, pricing and information on the classes, visit abcprojectvirtual.com. The training is only open to ABC members and students must have access to the software to participate, so as part of the program, Synergis is offering a discount on most Autodesk products to ABC members.

In the next few months, ABC and Synergis also plan to roll out additional elements of Project Virtual. For current updates, visit abcprojectvirtual.com.
