Tara Page, Education Director at CIAT:

“We are currently in discussions with the BRE about how to develop the BIM training and who to target it at. We have a meeting planned in January to finalise details of the BIM course, which is likely to take the form of a series of structured webinars. Our membership includes a number of practitioners who want to know more about BIM and students who are keen to learn more about BIM in terms of practice, over and above their  academic study”.

Other areas of construction being considered for courses include

  • Sustainable construction and BREEAM
  • Passivhaus technology
  • Building Regulations

The two partners are also considering the delivery of courses, including those in BIM, via the BRE Academy in Shenzhen, China, due to launch in the new year.

The BRE signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Shenzhen government looking at running courses in urban planning and sustainability, which are key competency areas for CIAT members.

BRE partnership

Pauline Traetto, director of the BRE Academy: “This new collaboration reinforces the valuable connection between BRE’s expertise and the architectural profession, which has such a powerful influence on our built environment. We are very pleased to be working with CIAT”.

Francesca Berriman MBE, Chief Executive, CIAT: “Continuous  skills development is critical for our members in the UK and around  the world given the scale of built environment development and the number of challenges that impact on it. Partnering with the BRE Academy will bring new professional development opportunities to our members that will further enhance their career progression”.

Details of the new training courses will be circulated to CIAT members and are listed on the BRE Academy website
