INDUSTRY REALITY AND REQUIREMENTS


For nearly 20 years, CCC BIM Center has been delivering hundreds of projects, most of them infrastructure projects,
using its solid BIM experience that was accumulated over these two decades. Based on CCC’s experience and expert
direction, a successful BIM implementation depends mainly on the deployment of competent engineers who are
fluently speaking the BIM language; the position of ‘BIM Engineer’ requires professionals with multiple skills. Since
forming the CCC BIM Academy in 2011 at CCC headquarters in Athens, the Academy has been providing specialized
knowledge to professionals in an academic environment through hands-on construction experience, BIM and IT
skills. This results in attaining quality and competent BIM resources who can take this technology to a true and
effective level of implementation. The BIM Academy has assembled top quality BIM instructors through a rigorous
selection procedure. Intensive and ambitious training is provided at CCC BIM Academy in Athens to the new recruits
to orient them on the BIM workflows, authoring, project controls, design coordination processes and many other
concepts that are needed for an effective and fruitful BIM implementation.
